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).
