General Information about Pre-Certification Fit Courses

Amoena offers an introductory Pre-Certification Fit Course for women as a first step to becoming Certified Mastectomy Fitters. The fitter's clinical experience, combined with her completion of an approved education program such as this, allows her to apply for certification through these nationally recognized boards:

  • ABCOP (American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics) - www.abcop.org 
  • BOC (Board for Orthotists/Prosthetists Certification) - www.bocusa.org

The Pre-Certification Course teaches you how to match product with surgery type, gives you practical hands-on fitting experience, and helps you master key fitting techniques. The course prepares you for the BOC and ABCOP certification exams.

If you are already BOC or ABCOP certified, you will receive Continuing Education credits (see above) for the course.

Fees: $45 per attendee (Virtual Course); $90 per attendee (In-Person Course); no cash payments. Charged to your Amoena account after the course; if you do not hold an Amoena account, please pay online. More information will follow via email.
