Lesson Plans

Education is the best way to evaluate and understand new procedures and products, and IAHCSMM is the leader in making this type of information readily available to its members. Through focused lesson plans, in print as well as online, IAHCSMM members find it easier than ever to advance their knowledge and professionalism, and earn the continuing education credits needed to maintain their hard-earned certification.

Each of the six issues per year of our publication, Communiqué, offers professional development training in the form of self-study lessons. These are important resources, especially for members earning their required continuing education credits. The lesson plans, which are referenced by our membership worldwide, are available for sponsorship. The sponsor receives prominent recognition on the pages of the lessons in Communiqué, plus exclusive sponsors also enjoy online exposure for the digital rendition of the plans at (including a direct web-link to a landing page of sponsors choosing. Note: these lessons are also available to members permanently, on a stand-alone basis, thereby enhancing exposure.
