A strong understanding of human anatomy and physiology is vital when learning and practicing ART. It is strongly recommended that providers take time prior to the courses to study their materials and watch the DVD(s) in order to be prepared for the course itself. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday will be educational days comprised of 80 percent hands-on work and 20 percent lecture. Instructors will present each protocol and then break into small groups to practice and answer questions. Testing will take place on Sunday mornings and once a provider passes the practical exam, they are considered a Certified ART Provider.
