This comprehensive course is carried by the AOTA - it is occupation based and meets AOTA requirements. Exploring Hand Therapy DBA Treatment2go is an Approved Provider.:This 25 contact hour (NBCOT® 31 PDUs; 25 AOTA hours APP CE) approved course focuses on the implementation of electrical current through an occupation-based approach. Comprehensive, interactive informative and fun course designed to assist OTs & OTAs in integrating electrical currents into clinical practice to improve human occupation performance. This electrical Agent course will discuss theoretical and biological concepts of each modality presented incorporating into occupation based practice. The format includes lecture, demonstration, PowerPoint, practicum discussion, case studies with emphasis on treatment planning and assessing effectiveness. This course will assist you in obtaining the training and continuing education you may need to comply with state requirements. Please verify with your state licensing and regulatory board to determine what specific requirements may be required. A post-test is employed to demonstrate mastery of the material presented & your certificate will be emailed immediately upon successful (80%) completion of the exam. A detailed 200 page mandatory reading manual helps you solidify your understanding of the material presented. This course can be purchased independently (25 contact hours)or as part of our comprehensive 45 Occupation Based PAMS series consisting of Thermal and Electrical modalities. This course provides conceptual preparation to seek additional training, and does not provide you a mentored hands-on skills session. Many states have clinical requirements which can be found in the manual and are completed independently. A MUST HAVE COURSE.to provide the education and skills needed to perform modalities safely.

    Thanks susan, I have taken both the thermal and eletrical modality courses and have found them to be very well delivered and comprehensive. I Really enjoyed the Lab demonstration. Great product. I have shown the course to friends that may take it as well

    As I mentioned on my review for the Thermal Agents course, I appreciated that this course was available and so directly structured for Ots. The information was very good and I certainly learned a lot.
