Host a Course
There are several ways to become a host site, including: (a) becoming a site for all four 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 MUST have meet the following requirements to be considered as a site for CSRS hosting, or for hosting a stroke recovery sampler:
- Able to provide seating and tables for about 60 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 plinths or tables should be located in the space, such that we have 3-4 attendees using each table. Tables that are not plinths but that can comfortably support attendees during laboratory exercises are permissible.
- Onsite audiovisual/media support for all 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 accessible parking accommodations for registrants, and wireless 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 CSRS Course:
In general we attempt to host about 8-10 CSRS courses per calendar year. Beginning in 2021, courses are held on one “long” weekend (Friday-Saturday-Sunday), with each course lasting about 7 hours (8 AM until about 4 PM).
Preference is usually 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 are unlikely to host a course in that city again for about 2-3 years, depending on demand (although we will hold it again in that region as soon as we can).
Host facilities are usually provided with two “scholarships” for members of their team. These individuals are then expected to act as course “liasions” on behalf of the facility, both to the instructors, and to registrants. 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.
