    The paper reports on a questionnaire evaluation of the UK-based ATLS (Advanced Trauma Life Support) instructor course. The trainee instructors who responded were mainly at consultant grade with some senior registrars. The course was regarded as being very effective in achieving most of its objectives and in raising the confidence of postgraduate medical instructors, especially those lacking previous training in instructional methods. This is particularly so for practical skills training. The least effective areas of the course concern small group teaching and questioning techniques.
