ISWP Virtual Basic Training in September

Following the success of our first virtual Basic training held in conjunction with ISPO’s Global Educators Meeting (GEM) in May-June 2022, we are holding the next virtual Basic training – open to everyone in the sector – in September 2022 (Dates to be confirmed).

Clinicians, technicians, students and community workers who are partly or fully involved in wheelchair service provision are encouraged to participate. The basic wheelchair training will be completely virtual, with online theory classes in the weeks before the actual workshop. All the trainees will then complete the requirements to receive the ISWP Wheelchair Service Provider (WSP) Certification and be part of our network of certified providers.

To participate in the training, please register and pay the fee (fees vary based on your home country and professional level) by 12th August 2022. Limited seats are available [total class strength is 20], and participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. More details on the fees structure is on the website.
