Event Details

 

Are You Interested in Becoming Certified as an Orthotic Fitter?

The Orthotic Fitter is an important part of the medical team. Following a physician’s order or prescription, an Orthotic Fitter properly fits, dispenses and adjusts off-the-shelf (OTS) orthotic devices or braces. Trained and Certified Orthotic Fitters are integral to the physical and emotional well-being of patients, providing training and instruction on how to properly use and maintain their OTS orthotic devices.

Össur’s Orthotic Fitter Course is an entry-level prerequisite program for those wishing to sit for the exam and upon passing become an ABC Certified Fitter-orthotics (CFo) or a BOC Certified Orthotic Fitter (COF). ABC-certified individuals will receive (30) Category II Scientific and (2) Category II Business continuing education credits for full participation in this course. This 32-hour course is also BOC approved as a refresher course for (31.5) Category 1 and (0.5) Category 2 credits. This course will provide preparation for direct patient care including patient assessment, formulation of a treatment plan, implementation of the treatment plan, follow-up and practice management.

Terms & Conditions:

Participants will not receive completion certificates if they do not attend all 4 days (The completion certificate is a required prerequisite to sit for the orthotic fitter exam).

Össur is not responsible for fees associated with certification exams.

Cancellations: A cancellation will result in forfeiture of $600 payment.
