Take our online courses from the comfort and convenience of your own home!
NEW (or expired) STUDENT: If this is your first time taking ASM classes, you will need to complete the hands on portion of our class in order to complete your certification, however, when that option is not available, an online course will give you good information and you are not required to complete hands on for certification. If it has been 2 years or more since you took your last certification class, your certification has expired and you must complete both online and hands on training in order to re-certify.
Refresher: For those who are currently certified (have completed hands on certification within the past two years), this course will satisfy the every two year “Refresher” requirement to maintain your certification.
ASM Basic Blended Learning (BL) certification:
There are no pre-requisites to taking the Online Basic Class, however, in order to be eligible for certification (which includes a patch, certificate of completion & CEUs) you must take both the ASM Basic Online Class and (within 6 months of completing online) will need to complete a 3 to 4 hour 200 series hands on Blended Learning (BL) class in person with an ASM certified Instructor. You will be required to show your online certificate when you take the hands on class (you will receive this automatically in PDF form when you complete the online portion). Patches and CEUs are only offered to those who complete both the online AND the hands on (200 series) classes.
After completing a Blended Learning class or a full ASM class and getting certified it is recommended that you complete a refresher every two years to maintain your certification. You can either take a hands on class, which is recommended so that you can practice, or take the course online to satisfy a refresher. You do not need to do both.

Online Training FAQ

A: Yes, you have 6 months from taking the online course to complete the Part Two BL Hands-On course.
Q: If I complete the Online training and then can’t get into a Hnads on for month, how can I refresh my memory before attending the hands on course?
A: If you are a new student, you are required to purchase the ASM book (PDF or Hard Copy). This book will be your reference and a way to refresh your memory before your hands on class.
Q: If I do not see a Hands on class in my area, can I chat with an instructor about coming to my area to teach my group?
A: YES! Please contact an ASM certified instructor in your area who can complete your certification with a hands on class. The Hands-On class will take 3-3.5 hour depending on the number of students and instructors. We require one instructor for up to 15 students and two instructors if you have over 15.
Q: My group is not very “techy”. I think we would be better of doing a class that is fully taught by an instructor. Do we still have that option?
A: Yes, that is called Instructor Led (IL). You certainly have that option as well as the blended learning option.
Q: If I take an Instructor Led class do I still need to take the online class?
A: No but you are welcome to do so if you wish
Q: I took the ASM classes years ago and would like to refresh. How do I do that?
A: If it has been many years since you took the training, there have also have been many changes and you should take the full class again, either Blended learning (BL) or Instructor Led (IL) if you wish to renew your certification
Q: I am current with my certification but would like to renew. How do I do that?
A: Every two years you should complete an online course OR take a hands on BL Part Two course. Hands on is always best but either one will keep your certification current. You can attend an Instructor Led class as well
