The Certified Wound Therapist® course includes comprehensive training in the assessment and treatment of the lymphatic-integumentary system. Phlebolymphedema is the number one cause of leg lymphedema. Are you prepared to provide comprehensive treatment, including management of venous leg ulcers (VLUs)? This course will show you how to differentiate and treat VLUs, arterial ulcers, pressure injuries, neuropathic foot ulcers, atypical ulcers, burns, moisture associated skin damage, and other integumentary issues. Extensive workshops enable you to get hands-on practice with integration of skin care, MLD, and lymph-integument rehab. Includes basic skills, such as wound cleansing, dressing selection and application, sharp debridement, negative pressure wound therapy, and more. Learn how to utilize a variety of bandaging systems for the continuum of lymphedema, including hands-on training in the application of 2-layer compression systems. All supplies are provided and you will also leave with a goodie bag of wound dressing samples.
No other wound management course on the market offers such breadth of hands-on workshops, coupled with robust didactic learning, making this Certification one of the most informative and fun to attend!

This was by far one of the best educational courses I have had in my long medical career. The instructors were organized and the material was presented in an interesting way. I felt that I learned everything I needed to know. I emphatically recommend this course to physicians and others interested in starting a wound care clinic. -Dr. C. Manley
By far, the most organized and well-presented, and informational course I have ever taken in over 30 years of clinical practice. Thank you! -L. Miller
The instructors are very knowledgeable and engaging! They want you to learn and do your best. Ensuring that you are successful is their utmost priority!
My experience of this course via tele training was so positive; I got to manage my own time, go at my own pace as far as the pre-requisite courses go and that I could be at the comfort of my own space during the live classes. -M. Arriola
