Why Choose Skills On Point?

       There are many reasons, but here's a few:

 We have partnered with several Chicago training centers to provide our participants with a state of the art meeting space to inspire creativity and foster learning.

Lunches, snacks, and drinks included with on-site baristas to accommodate your taste.

Downtown Chicago environment ideal for extending your stay and enjoying the ample amenities easily within your reach.

Expert instructors with proven track records of national exposure and hands-on training who suture on a daily basis.

Low class size with low student to teacher ratio to optimize your 1:1 time as needed.

Surgical grade instruments only. We believe that high-end tools help a better student simulate their practice areas most effectively. We do not sacrifice quality.

Hands-on time is our bread and butter. We will not bore you with hours of powerpoints. You came to learn how to tie knots and throw stitches and we believe there is no substitute for hands-on simulation.

Instrument tying is essential, but hand tying makes us different. Placing a chest tube, central line, or wound drain all require the skill of hand tying. We train you to confidently tie with your hands to secure your suture.
