I have been listening to podcasts and watching videos on the internet as part of my learning process.

How many tubes for competency, this is a nice summary of evidence looking into the evidence surrounding the number of intubation so required to attain oral intubation competence. More pertinent to the occasional intubator. This is a great article on how many intubations does it take to become competent on OpenAirway.org to start us off with some food for thought. 

There are then 3 podcasts to point you to:

The EM Res- Ultrasound in Dyspnoea. 1 of 2 parts.
