Certification Blueprint Review – Develop Your Study Plan

Join us for ONLINE or LIVE Study! 

Develop your personal action study plan for study by attending one of SSH's Certification Blueprint Review Courses, now being offered both online and live. Led by experienced simulation experts, the Certification Blueprint Review Course is designed to build your core knowledge of simulation principles and practice.  The program will also help you identify areas of strength and weakness in your knowledge and practice of simulation.  Attendees are encouraged to have a working knowledge of simulation education with at least 12 months of experience working in the field of simulation.  

Registration is $320 for CHSOS, including study resources and $370 for CHSE, including study resources and the NEW CHSE Blueprint Review Reference Manual! Learners will receive a maximum of 7.0 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for attending the course.
