IACSD Accredited IV Sedation Training Courses

We founded Yorkshire Sedation Training (YST) in 2008 when it became obvious that there was a shortage of independent courses to train dentists and nurses in IV sedation. Outside the university system the only other course at the time was SAAD, an excellent organisation but with courses that are regularly oversubscribed and infrequent.

YST has trained over 2000 people in IV sedation and was IACSD accredited in November 2016.
