These modules provide an in-depth review of the ACS BSCN program, the data collection process, current variables and their corresponding definitions. You can go at your own pace to learn the material and to practice applying the variables. When you complete each course, the post test, and the course evaluation, you will be able to print out a CE certificate. Although you only need a post test score of 80% to receive CE, ACS requires a score of 90% for course completion. Move your mouse cursor over the course titles below to find out more information.
