I passed my SPI. Thank you sooo much for your course and for your help! (purchased the course after attempting the SPI exam 4 times)
It gives a simple yet deeper understanding to principles which I found aided in my confidence in doing cases, especially vascular work.

Concepts included in the ARDMS SPI exam outline

This course is modeled largely after the ARDMS Sonography Principles and Instrumentation exam content outline. The sections correlate to each one of the tested categories on the registry exam. Also, the distribution of questions is aligned with format of the SPI exam.

Pass the SPI exam

Countless students have already achieved success on the SPI exam by studying with The Circulatory Skillset©: Doppler Ultrasound Made Simple mini-course. This is an extended version of that course! Since this full course includes even more exam categories, it will definitely be helpful on your learning journey.

Frequently asked questions

What is the learning style of the course?

It is a self-guided course that includes voice-over slide presentations. The 5th section (which is The Circulatory Skillset© mini-course) includes a video lesson that has a hands-on learning style and includes several interactive questions. In addition, each lesson has an attached quiz to review the material. Lastly, each user has access to a community of other learners as he/she progresses through the course.

How long will I have access to the course?

The course is designed to allow you 24-month access. You can start, stop, and return to the course as many times as you like during the 24 months.

Can I study this course instead of a textbook?

No, textbooks include tons of very detailed information that are essential to gaining understanding and providing proper diagnoses. Textbooks should be used as a foundation for learning if you are in school, and this course can be used as a supplement to learning. This course can clarify and bring to life various concepts.

Can this course guarantee that I pass the SPI exam?

How successful you are depends on how determined and disciplined you are with your study schedule. Again, a textbook should be read to gain the fundamentals. However, to grasp concepts and to properly perform ultrasounds, textbook learning alone may not be enough for some people. This course was designed to bridge that gap.

Can this course be re-sold?

No, this course cannot be re-sold by any other or individual or entity. These are the terms and conditions agreed upon at checkout. This course is protected by copyright.
