Ensure Your Clinical Preceptor Program Meets Today’s Standards

This AARC course has everything you need as a Respiratory Care Manager or Department Educator to provide standardized training for your hospital’s preceptor staff.


You’ll have 365 days of access to:

  • Four online modules addressing adult learning, understanding the learning context, the challenging trainee, and handling feedback

  • 2 online videos demonstrating student performance for standardizing preceptor evaluation

  • Downloadable course management documents for Respiratory Manager/Department Educator

Deliver the training one-on-one, in a group setting, or both—you decide.

It is the position of the CoARC that the AARC’s Practices of Effective Preceptors (PEP) program can be integrated in a meaningful fashion to meet CoARC Standard 3.07, but the program does not, by itself, meet the Standard exclusively. Questions regarding compliance with CoARC Standard 3.07 should be addressed to Tom Smalling, CoARC Executive Director.
