Welcome to the International Lymphedema & Wound Training Institute (ILWTI). ILWTI provides state of the art, advanced certifications in edema/lymphedema and wound management. We are founder and champion of the new Lymphatic & Integumentary Rehabilitation approach. Our continuing education courses are developed by licensed, medical specialists for other medical professionals.
ILWTI is the only training program where you can earn your lymphedema and wound certification simultaneously and become a Certified Lymphedema and Wound Therapist (CLWT®). We offer this as a full 9-Day course, or you can register for the Modular course format and take each section, on various dates at different locations, to achieve the full CLWT® certification: 3-Day Modern MLD Certification, 2-Day Certified Wound Therapist, and 4-Day S.T.R.I.D.E.™ Certified Compression Specialist. Each section is also offered as a stand alone course if you want to update your CLT or CLWT, add wound certification to your CLT, or simply take a stand-alone speciality certification course.
We offer many other advanced trainings in on-line, webinar, and live formats, so please take some time to browse the current course offerings, and check back for new courses that are periodically added. If you would like to receive updates, contact us.
We prepare you with the comprehensive knowledge and hands-on skills necessary to treat patients with various etiologies of edema/lymphedema and chronic wounds. ILWTI gives you the tools to successfully execute effective plans of care in lymphedema and wound care centers, cancer centers, home health, long-term care, orthopedics, geriatrics, in-patient rehab, short-term rehab, private practice, and many other clinical settings. We offer the most advanced and progressive training, and include more hands-on labs and workshops than any other lymphedema or wound care certification program.
