Sites arrange for qualified instructors to deliver presentations and their related skill stations.
Complete slide decks with speaker notes, administrative materials, and forms are provided to each site.
Textbooks are shipped to the site before the course, allowing learners to prepare for the live activity.
The site coordinator administers the pre- and posttests and provides score information to SCCM.

Course directors and coordinators can monitor the progress of students in real time through their personalized administrative dashboard.

Hosted training sites will be assessed a fee for each learner, which includes a copy of the current edition of the textbook (print or eBook) and a certificate of completion on successful course completion.
