Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, some of our registrants who are clinical sedation and/or general anesthesia team members have experienced difficulty registering for and/or attending required in-person courses. In recognition of this, we announced last April that courses with in-person components could be deferred. This deferral is extended again until May 1, 2021.
After May 1, individuals seeking further extension may contact the sedation team via the contact form with a request. Proof of course registration or proof of intent to retrain are required. Cases will be reviewed on an individual basis. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, the Sedation and General Anesthesia Committee will also continue to consider further extension as appropriate.
Courses that may be deferred due to in-person components under this extension are:
- Basic Life Support
- Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support
- Pediatric Advanced Life Support
- Difficult Airway Course
