Hosting A Course

There are several ways to become a host site, including: (a) becoming a site for the three-day (Friday-Saturday-Sunday) CSRS courses that comprise the certification series; (b) hosting a one day stroke recovery sampler at your site.

What Do We Look For in a Host Site?

We wish to provide a high-quality, professional product for our registrants. Therefore, facilities should meet the following requirements to be considered as a site for CSRS hosting, or for hosting a stroke recovery sampler:

  • Lecture space: Able to provide seating and tables for about 55-65 registrants. This space should have audiovisual capabilities such as a screen, a LCD projector and microphones.
  • Able to provide laboratory space for the lab components of the courses. Space that is separate from the lecture space is preferred but not required.
  • Both the lecture and lab spaces should have audiovisual capabilities, and have tables that are located in or can be moved to the lab space, and that can support the weight of attendees. A total of about 15 massage tables, plinths, or other tables should be located in the space, such that we have 3-4 attendees per table. Sturdy tables that are not plinths but that can comfortably support attendees during laboratory exercises are permissible.
  • Onsite audiovisual/media support for the first day is necessary; coverage for all three days on which courses are held is preferred. This allows us to troubleshoot if there are problems, or if attendees have special needs.
  • The facility should also feature wireless Internet access since all of our materials are placed online.
  • Experience with hosting previous CEU events is preferred.

How Do I Become a Host Site for a Stroke Recovery Sampler or CSRS Course?

Hosting a Stroke Recovery Sampler:

To learn more about becoming a site for a stroke recovery sampler, please visit the Stroke Recovery Sampler Page.

Hosting a CSRS Course:

Courses are held on one “long” weekend (Friday-Saturday-Sunday), with each session lasting about 8 hours (8 AM until about 4 PM).

Preference is sometimes given to regional sites that are located in metropolitan areas, and that are proximal to other metropolitan areas.  We also consider how recently we last held a course in that region or city. If a course was recently held in a particular city, we may be less likely to host a course in that city again for about 2-3 years, depending on demand.

Host facilities are usually provided with two “scholarships” for members of their team. These individuals are then expected to act as course “liaisons” on behalf of the facility.

There are no costs to the facility for hosting the course, and we handle all marketing and registration. However, regional host sites are expected to provide a morning light breakfast and afternoon light snack.
