This course is presented in a modular, web-based, self-paced format using the Moodle Learning Management System. The course is interactive and media-rich to help make the e-learning environment both engaging and convenient for the participant. The SCS Prep Course course is designed as a 17-week self-study program that integrates journal articles, online video presentations, Mind-Maps, weekly summaries, and additional online resources to offer the latest in current best evidence for sports physical therapy clinical practice. While weekly outlines and content are provided, participants are encouraged to deviate from the ‘schedule’ as necessary to spend more time in areas they find to be weaknesses. This allows the EIM SCS Prep Course to be a uniquely tailored experience for each participant. A pre-test, post-test, and weekly online quizzes are provided in a similar format to SCS exam questions to simulate the exam environment, identify knowledge gaps, and assess learning. The course is typically started 4-5 months prior to the SCS exam.
