Vascular-Web courses are developed with both content and presentation

material because this increases retention of the content.

Vascular-Web is set up for you to be able to retake the test as

This is to meet the approving organization's requirement and to
encourage the benefits of learning the material.
Once I pass a post-test, can I re-enter my courses to help me
refresh my memory?
Yes. We leave the courses accessible for 60 days to allow you to
re-enter and review the material. This is a great benefit if you
are preparing for a registry exam.
are Vascular-Web courses developed?
We review topics that are found in the Registry Exam Matrix for
both the ARDMS and CCI registries. Courses are developed to convey
an understanding of the materials. Other courses are developed from
new areas of technology impacting the field or basic information
order to progress to the level of clinical Vascular sonographer.

as with using the IE browser. If you must use Netscape Navigator,
we suggest upgrading to Netscape
