Pathway to the STEP Certificate
It is expected that it can take at least a year for a participant to complete this program depending on availability of registration spots for the program's live events and participant's completion of each program component. Because this is a structured program, all steps must be completed in the order listed above (Step 1 > Step 2 > Step 3) and the entry point must start with Step 1.
Please Note: Attending the Step 2 Interventional live course as a non-STEP participant will not enter you in the program. You will need to register for the complete STEP program and start at Step 1.
