- Each student will create a full-body manikin to be used during the practice scenarios and skills assessment. See manikin instructions below.
- Each student will act as a caregiver in four scenarios in a Zoom break-out room with a patient-actor reading from a highly detailed script. The instructor observes every scenario to assess student learning, provide feedback and make corrections.
- Each student will submit two completed SOAP Notes for grading. SOAP Notes are retained in the student’s records for the duration of their certification.
- Each student will complete an arm splint and a leg splint on their manikin, in a Zoom break-out room with a patient-actor providing feedback. The instructor observes every splint build to assess student learning, provide feedback and make corrections. All splints are graded according to a Splint Quality Checklist that can be reviewed here for arm splints and here for leg splints. Students must meet all criteria to pass splinting. Students will submit a picture of each splint to be retained in the student’s records for the duration of their certification.
