Online Relias Courses

Relias courses are offered in two formats:

  1. Traditional online format; and
  2. Personalized Learning Module (PLM) format. 

Several courses are available in PLM format, which can help you save time. PLMs measure your level of knowledge on a given topic and provide you with a personalized Learning Path. This approach ensures your time is focused on information most useful to you rather than on areas of proficiency.

Here’s an example of how you may benefit with the PLM format: 
The “Fetal Heart Rate and Uterine Contraction Monitoring” series of courses takes 9.75 hours to complete. It took one physician 1.39 hours to complete a PLM pretest. She then was assigned a customized learning path that eliminated course content for which she already demonstrated proficiency. Her learning path coursework took 2.35 hours to complete. This physician saved 6.01 hours by choosing the PLM learning option!

The following Relias courses are available to you:

PLM Format (CME credit will vary based on your personalized learning path.):

  • Fetal Heart Rate and Uterine Contraction Monitoring 
  • Managing Shoulder Dystocia
  • Obstetrical and Postpartum Hemorrhage
  • Hypertension in Pregnancy
