Hosting A Course
There are two ways to host a course with us: (a) becoming a host site for the three-day (Friday-Saturday-Sunday) CSRS course series; (b) hosting a one day stroke recovery sampler at your site.
What Do We Look For in a Host Site?
Hosting a One-Day, 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:
The live portion of the CSRS series occurs 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 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.
CSRS Site Setup:
We wish to provide a high-quality, professional product for our registrants. Therefore, CSTS host facilities should meet the following requirements:
- 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 lapel microphones.
- Laboratory space: Able to provide laboratory space for the lab components of the courses. Space that is in a separate room from the lecture space is not required. This space should have audiovisual capabilities such as a screen, a LCD projector and lapel microphones. 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.
