Q: Where are your continuing education courses held?
Most pre-scheduled live continuing education courses are held at our Simulation Center or at our Conference Center at 1340 S Alpine Rd, Rockford, IL 61108. See the specific course listing for location details. Private courses are held wherever you are located, as we will travel to your group, organization, or school!
Q: What do your courses cost?
Visit www.skillsonpoint.com for up to date pricing for live courses and https://skills-on-point.teachable.com for online continuing education courses for nurses. Concierge content is priced based on corporate rates based on desired programming and will drastically reduce the cost per attendee since we are not renting out space, paying for marketing, or food. The cheapest cost-per-participant will always be using our Concierge Program, and it gives you exactly what you want and nothing more.
Q: What is the minimum amount of time I can contract your Concierge Content?
There is no minimum or maximum. Since travel is part of the contracted rate, having one- or two-days’ worth of content to a larger group will reduce the per-capita expense. We work with groups of all sizes and durations from 4 hours upward.
Q: Are your courses accredited?
Yes, and depending on the desired learner population, we will do a custom application based uniquely on your needs. The lead time for this varies, but 60 days before the event is recommended as a minimum for marketing content and continuing education credit applications. As a generalization, we provide ANCC for all content as well as AAFP, AANA, AAPA, and others as desired by the target audience.
Our goal is to provide a comprehensive source for healthcare professionals to receive expert-led, professional-grade, hands-on continuing education for the key privileges required to work in modern healthcare. We make you this promise: We will never teach you something we do not actively perform in the actual patient care environment. That said, we are ever expanding our course list as we add instructors with expertise in new and exciting fields. If there is something you do not see listed that you wish we offered, reach out and you just might find we do, in fact, offer it!
Q: What is Mission Skills Inc?
Mission Skills Inc is a federal public charity under section 501c3. The purpose is to provide medical mission training, missions trip funding, and direct supply chain to people in need around the world. In short, we want to get the most impact during service trips and reach the lives of others with skills that translate during medical missions. We offer free suturing and procedural training for those who will serve in medical missions in the next 12 months. Learn more at www.missionskills.org.
Q: I'm really digging Skills On Point. Do you have an affiliate program so I can promote you?
Yes, we do! If you are a big fan of Skills On Point, why not get paid to help us reach others with our awesome content?! We offer very competitive commissions for live and online content. Join the team by reaching out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or click on our Affiliate Program tab. We would much rather invest in you than in a search engine for ads. The less we have to spend on advertising, the less we have to charge for our courses, and we all win. It’s as simple as that.
Q: Do I need to bring anything to my live course?
Unless specified in the course description, you do not need to bring anything to the continuing education courses. We provide all equipment used in our courses. In an effort to be eco-friendly and avoid unnecessary waste, we provide digital handouts for the courses. We will provide notepads for taking notes on, but since nearly all of our courses have a digital companion course on our Online CE Portal, you will be able to maintain enduring access to all the course handouts and presentations which you can print if you so choose.
Q: What if I have to cancel my class?
We understand that life happens. For all live content, we make considerable investments in your gear and instructors for the course from the moment you enroll. For this reason, live courses are not refundable, but can be applied to any other course we offer within the following 365 days. Online courses are eligible for 30-day no-questions-asked refund if you find the content is not what you were hoping to find. The only caveat is that once continuing education credit has been claimed, the course becomes non-refundable.
Q: Do I get to keep the instruments from my suturing course?
Your suturing course includes a suturing kit with a vast array of instruments for home use as well as a suturing pad and a full 140+ video online training library to help you expand your skills after your time in person with us! In addition to your instruments for home use, you will have access to additional specialty instruments that will be maintained by Skills On Point at the end of the course.
Q: How many people do I need to have for a private course?
It’s entirely up to you! We have provided training for groups of one or two, and groups of one or two hundred. The best thing we can do to answer this question is to discuss your unique learning needs, and we can provide a free quote for our services with multiple pricing options to satisfy both your budget and goals.
Q: I enrolled in a live course, now what?
Buckle up, get ready, and prepare to be amazed! You will be receiving an email after your purchase with instructions. It will include a link to our Online Continuing Education Portal for all live courses where your handouts, need-to-know information, and supplemental resources can be found. You will also fill out the post-course evaluation there after the course to generate and store a digital copy of your continuing education certificate. Make travel arrangements and consider reaching out to us to see if we have any block pricing on local hotels, based on the location of the course. We always make an effort to secure block pricing when possible at clean, reputable hotels.
Q: Do you rent out your equipment to schools and businesses?
Q: How can I get involved to help with Mission Skills Inc?
Financial donations are always helpful, but what is trash to an institution may be a treasure in training for our organization. Please consider donating unused in-date or expired medical goods to Mission Skills, Inc and we will pay for the shipping of the supplies to our warehouse and provide you with a tax-deduction letter. All donations are fully tax deductible under federal law.
