We recommend you read through the whole page for important details before registering. 


Pre-Certification (Introductory) 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.

This course has been approved by both BOC and ABCOP as pre-certification introductory instruction, as well as for continuing education credits. If you are already BOC or ABCOP certified, you will receive:

  • 9 BOC (8.5 Scientific & .5 Business), or 8 ABCOP (7 Scientific, 1 Business) credits for the In-Person course;
  • 6.5 BOC (6 Scientific; .5 Business) or 8 ABCOP (7 Scientific, 1 Business) credits for the Virtual course. 

Fees: $75 per attendee (Virtual Course); $125 per attendee (In-Person Course); no cash payments. Please pay online through the registration link.
