CS-Link Training Guidelines

CS-Link™ training begins in just 10 days (Jan. 16). If you haven’t already signed up for training, you’re in the minority. More than half of our medical staff members have already registered for training. For information about how to sign up for training, please go to www.cslinkcentral.org. In addition, we encourage you to visit this physician-specific website to complete the 10-minute e-learning modules prior to your instructor-led training.

Following are a few ground rules you need to be aware of (and adhere to in order to be compensated) as you head into training:

  • You need to be present for the entire class.
  • Classes will start on time and end on time. Classroom doors will be locked 10 minutes after the start of class. If you do not make it to class prior to the doors being locked, you will need to reschedule for your training for another time.
  • You cannot miss more than 15 minutes in total (e.g., showing up late, leaving early, stepping out to take calls etc.).
  • Cell phones are to be set to vibrate or turned off.

We encourage you to arrange for patient care coverage during your training if possible. Each time you leave to handle a patient care issue, the entire class will be interrupted (as the instructor tries to bring you up to speed when you return).

A 15-minute break will be offered during the session so you can return phone calls, etc. Also, food and beverages will be provided, so there’s no need to bring your own, unless you have a specific need.

As a reminder, you MUST complete your CS-Link training by March 2, 2012. If you have any questions about training, please call (310) 423-2828 (option 7) or send an email to AskCSLink@cshs.org.
