About the Course

This course will consist of approximately 4 hours of pre-course reading and preparation. Through review of course materials participants will develop/refresh their didactic knowledge base. The four hour hands-on component will begin with a threshold examination, followed by video review and a series of hands-on workshops. Skills in sterile technique, spinal and epidural placement will be developed through experiential learning sessions. The mastery learning principle will be employed in order to ensure that all participants gain needed skills for application to clinical practice. 

Cancellation Policy: It is our general policy that unless otherwise stipulated,  if a participant cannot attend a class that is previously paid for, they must inform the course director by email at least 2 weeks prior to the class date for a full refund. Course director emails can be found on the directory page for each course on the WISER web site.  If the cancellation occurs within 2 weeks of the class, the participant is subject to the revocation of a portion or the entire course fee to WISER.  In addition, they may be subject to a cancellation fee based upon a percentage of the course cost.
