How long will I have to complete my course, once I have enrolled on it?
You will have 90 days to complete your course but we send you weekly email reminders to keep you motivated! So, when you next have some downtime, you can to dip back into your learning and pick up from where you left off.
Can I have the course notes to download?
Unfortunately we aren't able to give you the course notes to download, but you can screen shot them for future reference or to use as revision aids for the MCQ sections.
Do I have to pass any tests to complete the course?
We want to you to exit our courses feeling more confident and competent to undertake scans, and blended learning is a great way to help you meet these learning objectives. We have added a few MCQs to the end of each course section to consolidate your learning and help you to feel confident that you have grasped those all-important points from our video lessons.
If you don't get the questions right the first time around, you can repeat the MCQ test and try again. We don't think you will have a problem though, because all the information to pass the questions are included in the videos and the course notes.
Why do you include 'The Fundamentals of Ultrasound System Controls and Image Optimisation' as part of a bundle option for some of your courses?
We have decades of experience in both performing and teaching clinical ultrasound to multidisciplinary colleagues. We KNOW how critical it is to your diagnostic confidence and capabilities, that you fully understand how to drive an ultrasound system before you start to scan patients. Since ultrasound is THE most operator-dependent form of imaging, you need to maximise your chances of reaching the correct clinical impression each time you scan. By having a sound appreciation of the underpinning knowledge of your ultrasound system function and controls, you can support optimum patient outcomes.
If there isn't a bundle option for your chosen course, then basic ultrasound instrumentation and image optimisation will already be included in the video learning package!
Can I fast forward through the course without completing all the lessons?
You can revisit previous lessons but the course runs on a linear platform and you must complete each lesson in order before progressing on to the next. We have designed the courses to ensure that you receive the information in a logical and structured manner, so that the course flows well for you.
