INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS
Approximately two weeks prior to the course, you will receive an email from the lead instructor or a staff member of Cogent Steps, LLC informing you of details of the course, to include exact location, parking and any specifics of the location. We rely on our generous hosts including clinicians and clinics for support for our course locations.
All course (ERA, EMR, and recertification) usually run 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. On that last day, the course may finish slightly earlier than 5 pm. If you have travel concerns, please let the lead instructor know ahead of time and accommodations can be coordinated.
Once you sign up for a course you will need to order the instructional materials required. There are different requirements for each course: Cogent Steps, LLC recommends purchasing textbooks and workbooks from the Red Cross Store.
All students must have an adult/infant CPR mask for the Full EMR and one-day EMR Recertification courses. CPR is not included in the ERA course, but may be registered for as an enrichment module. If this option is selected, Pre-purchase and have the mask delivered to your course!

**While we coordinate with our hosts, on a rare occasion a situation may arise where a course needs to be cancelled or postponed due to administrative, contract or registration issues. We make every attempt to decide 14 days prior to the first day. We recommend purchasing refundable tickets and hotel rooms or the purchase of travel insurance should a cancellation or postponement occur. Students are welcome to transfer between courses if a conflict arises.
