Thank you for your interest in hosting a Herman & Wallace Continuing Education Course!
What does it mean to "host a satellite"?
In a satellite course, the instructor lectures remotely, via Zoom. The host plugs in a laptop to the projector and, during lecture, the participants at the satellite location sit and take notes, just like they would if the instructor was in the room. During lab time, participants are assisted by in-person teaching assistants - one or two qualified locals arranged by Herman & Wallace. In order that participants receive the guidance they need, please note that if we are not able to find a lab assistant, we will need to reschedule the course. During the course, a member of the Herman & Wallace admin team assists with the meeting, takes attendance, and provides ongoing support to all hosts. An Herman & Wallace admin will also be available to run a “tech rehearsal” prior to the course to assure that the room set up and AV are working correctly. Herman & Wallace will send disposable supplies, including gloves, wipes, lubricant, etc. to each satellite. Participants will be asked to brown bag any of their own food. We are also happy to work with our satellites to coordinate any COVID precautions that need to be communicated to registrants (vaccination requirements, travel restrictions, etc.).
Generally, we are looking for locations that have the following:
- Room for 16+ therapists to gather
- Roughly one lab table for every two participants (8 tables for a 16-person group)
- The following AV equipment:
- -LCD projector and table for projector
- -Laptop with Zoom downloaded - plugs into the projector and plays the instructor teaching live on Zoom
- -Projection screen
- -Speakers - Bluetooth or plug into the laptop. These do not have to be fancy, but they need to be loud enough that everyone can hear
The courses currently offered in satellite lab format can be found on the continuing education course page. Please read on and fill out the form below if you are interested in hosting a course with us!
Currently our administrative capacity does limit the total number of satellite clinics we can work with on a given weekend, so we are prioritizing satellite partners in high demand locations with room for 16 or more participants.
We offer complimentary seats in the course to satellite hosts. We offer one free seat for hosts who have the space for 19 or fewer participants, and two free seats for those with room and equipment for 20+ participants.
As host, you may have some folks on staff who have already completed this coursework that would like to act as teaching assistant. Teaching assistants earn $250 in Herman & Wallace course credit per day, or $500 for the weekend. A list of qualifications in order to act as a teaching assistant can be found on our Teaching Assistant page.
