Primarily targeting physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners and physician assistants, the program is designed to help healthcare professionals who seek to:

- Validate their knowledge and receive a certificate of completion or
- Start an FLS program of their own
The On-Demand program is comprised of 20 individual sessions (synchronized slide/audio presentations) from ISO19, held in La Jolla, CA from May 15-18, 2019. Each session must be completed, including post-test and session evaluation, in order to earn your FLS Certificate of Completion. An overall evaluation is required at the completion of the program and then you may print your certificate. Each session provides the opportunity to print a CME/CE certificate at the end, or you may wait and print out your transcript once you have finished.
