The Site ICUeducation.com was a paid site with option of limited access as a Free customer. From this year, the registration to the site is FREE and the payment your friend made is no longer to be paid by new subscribers
We have taken care so that no one who has a valid subscription suffers. For the Subscription amount, subscribers got free and full access to all the self-assessment modules. They will continue to have access for the remainder of the year (validity was 1 year). New subscribers who register for free, require paying for each self-assessment module separately. There is no question of refund as for them they continue to get the services as before.
Normally subscribers receive an email instantaneously. There are 2 possibilities for not receiving email in your email inbox:
1. The email most likely is in your spam folder (or equivalent). Please check. This is the issue 95% of the time.
2. You may have typed your email wrong! It happens to the best of us. Just register again.
Setting up your password happens towards the end of the registration process. After you click on the confirmation link in the email (you should have received). It is now that you are presented with option to set your password
Changing a password is very easy. Just login to the website and you will reach the dashboard. On the top you will see your details and a button “Edit Profile” and “Change password”. Click on “Change Password”
a. This is indeed a problem. Once your membership is “mapped” to the previous account, it will not link to the new account! Few subscribers have faced this problem as they have even created 3-4 accounts (Confusing the computer!).
b. Preventive action is that once you create an account for the first time, PLEASE NOTE DOWN the login and Password somewhere carefully (and DO NOT FORGET where you noted these- ha ha)!
a. This is a commonly faced problem that occurs because the subscriber enters his/her first name as Dr XXYY rather than just XXYY. Its easily corrected by logging into the site and going to “dashboard”.
b. Go to my profile— click on edit profile.
c. Remove the “Dr.” before first name. That’s it. Refresh and print your Membership Certificate again now. You can also correct from lower case to Upper Case (the first letter of your name, if needed).
The pricing for Members of the College is very special.
While there are many sites on the internet that provide knowledge in terms of text or videos, very few objectively assess the learners understanding of the topic taught. If 100 people listen to a lecture or read a chapter in a book, each person’s ability to understand is different. There are unfortunately those among us who “do not understand but know not that they do not understand!” SELF-ASSESSMENT is crucial feedback to all learners to know how well they understand a subject.
Critical Care is a relatively new specialty, and it is not surprising that all over the world, there is a severe shortage of structured teaching and trainers. Many of today’s practicing Intensivists are self-taught. There was a need for a platform where busy practicing doctors and students-in-training could come and compare their understanding of certain key Skills & Knowledge with a team of experts. Skills in Critical Care that can be objectively assessed such as ABG interpretation, Xray interpretation, ECG/ EKG interpretation etc are carefully prepared so that subscribers can compare their knowledge with that of experts in the field.
This certificate is very important proof of the ACP (Academic Credit Points) you have earned. Always remember to listen to ALL the lectures before printing your certificate from the link on the top of the page.
As many times as you like (till your subscription expires).
a. Firstly, stop calling him your friend!
b. While digitally it is possible in today’s time to alter pdf documents, they will be of no use to your friend. All certificates issued by CCEF have a “Unique Identification Number (UID)” that the HR department or College can easily verify from ICUeducation.com site where validation of any certificate of CCEF can be done instantaneously.
There are 3 modes (exam type) in which a subscriber can use the self-assessment module.
1. Pure practice mode (untimed): Here you can spend as much time as you need to solve the problem. In the beginning you are bound to take more time. With practice your confidence will increase, as will your speed. Note that if you select this type/mode, you need to specify the number of questions you wish to attempt.
2. Mock exam mode (timed): This is like in the OSCE examination. You will be presented with 4 questions at random and get 3 minutes per question (timer on top).
3. Online exam mode: Here you will be presented with 15 questions at random and get 3 min per question. You need to score more than 60% marks to be declared PASS and get a certificate. The assessment is manual by the College so the evaluation may take weeks depending on load.
