EXETER, PA – Pride Mobility Products Corporation and Quantum Rehab are pleased to announce the new 2011 Professional Education Partnership. The comprehensive 24-city national tour begins on March 16 in Orlando, FL and continues through October, with a final stop in Wilkes-Barre, PA, near the company’s headquarters.
With educational opportunities at 24 different locations, the 2011 Professional Education Partnership delivers more content to providers while reducing their travel costs for even further value, offers CEU courses at a reasonable price, the best seating and positioning instructors in the industry, and first-hand demonstrations of Pride and Quantum Rehab’s newest product innovations.
“When we set out to determine the curriculum for the Professional Education Partnership, we based our plans directly on what providers are telling us they need,” says Dan Fedor, General Manager of Education & Compliance. “Pride and Quantum feel very strongly that this year’s courses are the most comprehensive to date. They are designed specifically to deliver the required educational credits demanded by the industry in a very affordable venue.”
The 2011 Professional Education Partnership curriculum will include Mobility Product Troubleshooting and Repair, Complex Mobility: Solutions to Meet the Client’s Needs, and The Science of Mat Evaluations & Wheelchair Prescription. In addition, Pride’s Silver Star Certification Course will be offered at select locations as well as Quantum Rehab Technology and Repair. CMS Quality Standards require that all complex rehab providers have at least one service technician per location be factory trained by the manufacturer of the products they sell. Quantum Rehab Technology and Repair applies toward this requirement and supplies a certificate of approval upon completion.
Professional Education Partnership presenters consist of a team of certified specialists who also are featured speakers at industry-related conferences and seminars throughout the country. This year, Jodie Stogner, PT, ATP, who is the founder of Southeastern Assistive Technology Solutions, LLC and Southeastern Assistive Technology Solutions Consultants ,LLC in Jackson, MS, and Bill Pierce, PT, who is a clinician specializing in neuro-rehab at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Eugene, OR, and many more new and returning presenters will share their expertise.
