Fit Specialist Training
As a leader in breast care around the world, Amoena offers education for women who want to become certified fit specialists.
Women who wear a prosthesis should have their fit evaluated at least once a year by a Certified Mastectomy Fitter (CMF).
CMFs are trained to fit bras and breast prostheses through manufacturer based programs. Their clinical experience, combined with their completion of an approved education program, allows them to apply for certification through nationally recognized boards such as:
- ABCOP (American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics)
- BOC (Board for Orthotists/Prosthetists Certification)
Amoena currently offers Introductory Fit Specialist courses in cities around the nation, in the spring and fall. The Introductory Course is a pre-certification course that instructs you on how to match product with surgery type, gain practical hands-on fitting experience, and master key fitting techniques. The course prepares you for the BOC and ABCOP certifications exams.
If you are already BOC or ABCOP certified, you will receive 8 BOC or 7.5 ABCOP continuing education credits.
We are offering our Advanced Fit Specialist course one time this Spring. This course centers around more advanced techniques for fit specialists, and the challenges and issues your customers face with newer surgeries and treatment options.
Fit seminar dates and locations are subject to change. We make every effort to update the list as soon as a change occurs. See below to register.
