Lifeline Educators, in conjunction with Saint Anthony Hospital’s EMS Education Department, provides self-paced online educational materials to medical providers.
These online offerings allow lecture material to be viewed any time, anywhere, on most computers and mobile web devices. Integrated online testing modules and workbook exercises complete the learning experience.
Continuing Education credits, and/or course-completion certificates will be awarded upon successful completion of courses. In some cases, an on-site final examination may be required.
Access to online material will be granted once payment for the course has been received (allow up to 24 hours to allow payment verification). Students will be allowed to begin viewing currently available coursework through their online education “home” page, once individual registration (and course payment) has been completed.
