FCCS Online Licensed Course

The online licensed course allows sites to more efficiently deliver the didactic educational content and creates flexibility for instructors and learners for the delivery of the hands-on skill stations. Using a state-of-the-art online learning management system, participants complete the lecture portion of the course over four weeks. Online lectures prepared by leaders in critical care are delivered by professional presenters. Course directors and coordinators can monitor the progress of students in real time through their personalized administrative dashboard.

Participants who successfully complete the online licensed course will receive a certificate of completion. In addition, those learners will receive 6.5 continuing education (CE)/continuing medical education (CME) hours from SCCM for their completion of the lecture portion of the program.

Shaped by SCCM’s commitment to meeting the needs of each individual customer, the FCCS course pricing structure is designed to be both fair and flexible. Pricing options are tiered, based on a country's Gross Domestic Product at Purchasing Power Parity Per Capita​ as reported by the World Bank in its most current World Development Indicators database. This allows SCCM to accommodate ranges in needs and available financial resources.

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

Tier GDP (PPP) Per Capita (USD) Single Course Pricing (USD) Per Learner Pricing (USD)
For-Profit Not applicable $3,970 $65 per learner
Nonprofit Tier 3 More than $15,000 $2,490 $61 per learner
