Orthotic Fitter Course

ABC & BOC approved course.

Certified orthotic fitters are an important part of the medical team - properly fitting and adjusting off-the-shelf (OTS) orthotic devices or braces prescribed by physicians. Well-trained orthotic fitters provide patients with valuable instructions on how to properly wear and maintain their brace.

Össur's Orthotic Fitter Course is an ABC- and BOC-approved entry-level pre-certification course for those wishing to become an ABC Certified Fitter-orthotics (CFo) or a BOC Certified Orthotic Fitter (COF). This course is a prerequisite prior to taking the Orthotic Fitter Exam.

Join us and you will benefit from:

  • Daily lectures from experienced professionals
  • Patient fitting labs - 16 hours of hands-on experience
  • Clinical assessment exercises
  • Practice exams to prepare you for successful completion of the ABC or BOC Certification Exam
  • And leave with the in-depth Anatomy & Physiology Pre-training Manual!
