Please note: upon purchase, this course bundle will appear in your account under "My Courses", and each individual lesson will be listed separately.
This package contains NBDHMT approved Category A CEU courses to meet re-certification requirements for CHT and partial CHRN.
As per the NBDHMT CHT Resource Manual updated April 2017: "CHTs are required to earn a minimum of 24 hours of education credits (hours) during each re-certification period.
At least 12 must be Category A, defined as education and training directly related to the practice of undersea, hyperbaric or hypobaric medicine. Of these 12 credits, at least 9 (75%) must relate to ‘core competency’, namely technical, operational and safety aspects of the hyperbaric/hypobaric delivery system. They may be earned through attendance at meetings and conferences that have received prior-approval from the NBDHMT to award such credits."
This package fulfills that portion of the re-certification requirement.
Note: For full details of CHT re-certification requirements please consult the NBDHMT CHT Resource Manual
