COVID-19 TESTING REQUIREMENT FOR RESIDENTIAL COURSES
Remote Medical Training Residential Courses
In an effort to provide our clients with the safest learning and lodging environment we are requesting that all students who are unvaccinated or vaccinated provide a negative covid test within 72 hours of your course's in-person course start date. In addition we would encourage our students to limit their exposure to public environments after receiving this test and during our programs. We understand that this will be challenging and ask that you do your best. Please try to whenever possible use social distancing and wear a mask to limit your exposure during our programs.
Remote Medical Training prospective students must provide within 72 hours prior to arrival at any residential course a negative or NON-DETECTED result on a FDA EUA approved NAAT (nucleic acid amplification test) for SARS-CoV2.
- A Nucleic Acid Amplification Test, or NAAT, is a type of viral diagnostic test for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. NAATs detect genetic material (nucleic acids). NAATs for SARS-CoV-2 specifically identify the RNA (ribonucleic acid) sequences that comprise the genetic material of the virus
- NAATs can use many different methods to amplify nucleic acids and detect the virus, including but not limited to:
- Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR)
- Isothermal amplification including:
- Nicking endonuclease amplification reaction (NEAR)
- Transcription mediated amplification (TMA)
- Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP)
- Helicase-dependent amplification (HDA)
- Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)
Remote Medical Training does not accept any antigen based screening as proof of a negative Covid-19 test. Please upload a copy of your test results onto the student portal under the document upload section of your course and use the Proof Of Negative Covid Test upload button.
