A course consultant is required for first-time sites, coordinators, and directors. Considered an expert in the FCCS: OB program, the consultant is very familiar with all aspects of the course content and administration. The course consultant will provide guidance from course planning through completion—helping with organization, administrative issues during setup, and evaluating the initial course presentation. The consultant may serve as an instructor but may not lead skill stations. The site is responsible for selecting the course consultant.
