Updated 26 Sept 2020

First, a huge and heartfelt thank you to all providers who have been called into action on the front lines of the COVID-19 response. Thank you. 

Next, a quick update on our live courses and trainings. 

Wound Care Education Partners is implementing a "COVID-19 Contingency Plan" to move forward with hyperbaric medicine and wound care trainings. 

Instruction is the same as a face-to-face training, with the goal of reducing human-to-human physical contact and reducing travel as per government instructions. 

This contingency plan and unique training opportunity offered only for a limited time during this pandemic.

How It Works

Wound Care Education Partners has received UHMS and NBDHMT approval to hold all 4-days of the hyperbaric medicine basic training course and our wound care training course via live stream webinar format.

This course meets the CMS requirements for physician supervision and billing; and is a precursor to getting the UHMS PATH or ABWH certificate of added qualification.

This course will provide you with basic training or continuing education in hyperbaric medicine.

  • We will provide all 4 course days of the hyperbaric training course via livestream webinar.  The purpose of this livestream webinar format is to continue training as normal while reducing the level of person-to-person physical human contact and reducing travel in accordance with government imposed restrictions. 
  • The chamber and TCOM practicums are also taught via livestream webinar. It is included with the full course registration fee. Our faculty will livestream the practicums from the WCEP chamber classroom. If you are working in a hyperabric facility, we recommend that you join the livestream course that day from your chamber room, but it is not mandatory.
  • Course attendees may attend the livestream course days from wherever they are located (ie, home or office) are as long as they have: 
    • A computer with strong internet connection
    • A camera on your computer so we can see you (required for attendance verification purposes)
    • Speakers and a microphone on your computer for listening to the lectures and asking your questions (or an available phone line, a dial in option is available for the audio)
  • We offer a mandatory webinar "orientation and test runs" each Tuesday and Thursday at 1pm EDT so students can test their computer connection prior to the start of the course. The webinar orientation/test run is mandatory for all students attending a livestream webinar format course.
