FDM Traditional Licensed Course

A live, director-led, two-day course is the traditional method for delivering the FDM course. Licensed sites arrange for qualified instructors to deliver the lectures and their related skill stations. Complete slide decks with speaker notes, administrative materials, and forms are provided to each site. Textbooks are shipped to the site before the course, allowing learners to prepare for the live activity. The site coordinator administers the pre- and posttests and provides the results to SCCM, which prepares and ships certificates of completion to the site coordinator for distribution.

The Licensing Team can help sites that have not previously held a course find consultants who will lead the development of FDM on site. The goal is for individual sites to become self-sustaining in their delivery of the FDM program.

Shaped by SCCM’s commitment to meeting the needs of each individual customer, the FDM course pricing structure is designed to be both fair and flexible. The Society offers two options: single-course licenses and unlimited annual course licenses. Pricing options are tiered, based on a country's Gross Domestic Product at Purchasing Power Parity Per Capita​ as reported by the World Bank in its most current World Development Indicators database. This allows SCCM to accommodate ranges in needs and available financial resources.

If you plan to hold four or more courses in one year, you should consider an unlimited license. The Society offers discounted course pricing for volume purchases—the more courses you purchase, the larger the discount.

Both licensing options consist of a course fee and per learner pricing. Licensed institutions will be assessed a fee for each learner, which includes a copy of the current edition of the textbook (print or eBook) and, upon successful completion of the course, a provider certificate. 

Funding is available to provide financial support for organizations in developing or impoverished nations and underserved areas of the United States. Visit the donor-funding training web page to learn more about eligibility and to apply.
