CSU-ALS FORMAL TRAINING CENTER PROCESS

1.  Accredited Centers

 

     A.  Must execute a formal agreement between CARE and the hospital/ health system/ group.

 

     B.  The executed Accredited Center agreement gives the center access to all of the training materials.

 

     C.  Training is focused on internal staff only.  Accredited Centers cannot open up training to outside staff.

 

     D.  To maintain center status, the center must:

          i.  Complete and pass periodic audits.

         ii.  Trainers must maintain certification status.

        iii.   Notify CARE at least 30 days in advance of planned courses:

               a.  To facilitate online registration.

               b.  To gain access to E-learning pre-course materials.

               c.  To permit the shipping of course books in advance of your course.
