Orthotic Fitter Courses

Posted by Linda Collins | April 26, 2016

​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 certain orthotic devices.

Össur’s Orthotic Fitter Course is an entry-level program for those wishing to sit for the ABC Certified Fitter-orthotics (CFo) or BOC Certified Orthotic Fitter (COF) exam. 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. Focus areas include patient assessment, formulation of a treatment plan, implementation of the treatment plan, follow-up and practice management.

Join us and you will benefit from:

  • An in-depth Anatomy & Physiology Pre-training Manual to prepare you for the coursework
  • Daily lectures from experienced professionals
  • Fitting labs - 16 hours of hands-on experience
  • Clinical assessment exercises
  • Practice exams that will prepare you for successful completion of the ABC or BOC Certification Exam

The registration fee for Össur’s Orthotic Fitter Course is $600.00. Lunches will be provided and a negotiated group room rate will be arranged for those who require hotel accommodations.
