Each convention course will follow the following format:

  1. FCS Lecture
  2. FCS Demonstration
  3. Practice Session with approximately 20-30 participants & CSA ITP Instructor


Each practice session will take place in a Zoom breakout room with 20-30 attendees. Each Zoom breakout room will be hosted by a CSA Instructor or TA to help answer your questions. You can move or prop up your webcam to view your practice area and to ask questions. Practice Sessions can be done at your location with:

  1. A lab partner who is a paying member of the convention
  2. A practice patient/friend/relative
  3. With other paying members of the convention in a group setting*

*Please note that anyone viewing the convention courses who is not a paid attendee will not receive credit for any of the courses. All FCS practitioners viewing the course must be registered. You may use a friend or relative as a lab practice patient but all practitioners must be registered.
