In collaboration with the National Stroke Association, we have developed the field's only stroke certification program for therapists: the "Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist" (CSRS™).

The CSRS™ is a four-tiered, seminar-based, stroke education program that is designed for licensed physical and occupational therapists of all experience levels. Each, live CSRS™ seminar offers 6.5 hours content and continuing education units (required for therapist licensure in most states). The four-seminar series culminates in an online certification exam administered via a secure website. Successful test completion with a score of 80% or above grants the CSRS™ certification. CSRS™-certified therapists may list the initials “CSRS” behind their professional credentials.

This couse has sold out.  We do not maintain waiting lists for courses. Please view our other course offerings in Tulsa, Rochester, NY, and Salt Lake City.
