What's inside your endoscopes?
Ofstead has developed a CE course on visual inspection based on scientific evidence and our experience examining hundreds of endoscopes.Register Here
AAMI/ANSI, AORN, and SGNA guidelines recommend visual inspection using good lighting and magnification.
Borescopes allow technicians to examine the complex interiors of flexible endoscopes, which allows early identification of scopes that would benefit from additional cleaning, repair, or refurbishment.Register Here

Once enrolled, you view the training webinar at your convenience. You can stop and pause at any time and can continue later. All CE-eligible training is designed to give you the knowledge to complete a Quiz at the end. After completing the Quiz, you'll receive a score and will know if you've passed the exam. After you complete the exam, we ask that you complete the accompanying survey. This will be your chance to grade us and let us know how we've done.
You will be awarded CE credits after successfully completing a short Quiz at the end of any CE-eligible webinar. You’ll be able to print a certificate and your account will record the completion and credits. When logged in, go to "My Dashboard" anytime to view your accomplishments and awarded CE credits.
