The DART course

DART is a one day airway course in which you learn the skills to apply the Difficult Airway Society guidelines (DAS). DART has been ratified and endorsed by the Difficult Airway Society.

Since its inception by trainees in Bristol, the DART course has been delivered in multiple sites around the UK and even in Australia. The content is updated from course to course in response to feedback from attendees and to reflect changes in best practice.

We aim to provide training for healthcare professionals involved with airway management, taught through small group, hands on workshops. Delegates have previously included anaesthetists in all stages of training, ED staff, ODPs, anaesthetic nurses and ITU nurses. If you would like more information about the course, please email us at

We have updated the website with some airway guidance for managing COVID-19 patients

The next DART course will be run in the BRI on 07/12/23. This course will be open to anyone who would like to attend. Places will be capped at around 25. Please see the news page for further details of how to apply.

If you are a trainer, our philosophy is to provide you materials and support the delivery of DART in your centre. Contact for further information
