About the program

The online program contains professionally narrated presentations, videos, animations, and additional reading resources accessible at any time once the cohort begins on the first of each month. Students work through the program at their own pace.

Scenario-based questions are included in each of the modules to assess students’ understanding of the content presented. A passing score of 80% and review of all slides in each module is required to complete the program.

Time to Complete

It is estimated that most professionals will be able to complete the program within 3 months. However, students will have access to the program material for one year after the date of enrollment.

Certificate of Completion and CMEs

Upon successful completion of the full program, students will be able to access a Certificate of Completion on their AABB account record within 14 days. CMEs, as well as documentation for Florida and California licensed professionals, will be provided.
