- Subject 1 – Principles of Ultrasound and iHeartScan
- Subject 2 – Ultrasound Guided Procedures
- Subject 3 – Doppler Echocardiography
- Subject 4 – Ventricular Function
The course instruction builds upon previous knowledge so it is best to complete the subjects in order. For the SCA-On-CUE certification, all subjects 1 – 4 need to be completed and satisfactorily passed.
This online course provides a structured educational ultrasound program with self-assessments to reinforce the learning experience. Upon receipt of payment, the student will receive a “Getting Started” email with instructions on how to access the course materials.
Students have the flexibility to study in their own time and location. Program materials can be accessed through the iTeachU app on smartphones and tablets with iOS, Android or Windows systems. Once the program materials have been downloaded on smartphones and tablets, all the interactive media content can be viewed even when offline (however internet access is required periodically to login or re-verify login credentials). Program materials can also be accessed online using a web browser.
The SCA encourages medically qualified applicants who possess qualifications sufficient to practice as a medical practitioner; these include MD, MBBS, MBChB or equivalent degrees. Learners will need to be competent in English to complete the courses.
Assessment Components: The self-assessments and examinations are completed via an online web-based system. For self-assessment questions, once completed, the screen will refresh with the answers and explanations.
Once all self-assessments and case studies are submitted examinations can be done whenever you are ready. Examinations are 50 multiple choice questions per subject which are conducted online.
Certificate Upon Completion: Upon meeting the assessment components for each course level a completion certificate will be issued from SCA and iTeachU. For individual subjects a statement of activities will be issued. If four individual subjects are completed from one level a certificate of completed will be issued.
