Training is available for all skills levels, and course topics range from dialysis access to primers on dealing with substance abuse among kidney patients.
The courses available are in video format with commentary from professionals in their field. Multiple choice questions are provided to test those who participate and certificates of completion are downloadable upon passing the online exam.
The PERC online center provides a customizable learning portal for reviewing all CME/CE activities and completed courses allowing for professionals to access educational offering anytime, anywhere. PERC is also free to all NKF members.
