Our educational workshops have been offered for many years now and we will continue to offer the popular Building Blocks and Take the Wheel Workshops. For ease, convenience and cost savings, we are now offering an online/live combination for the Building Blocks workshop. You may opt to only register for certain sections of Building Blocks or for the entire workshop as 200 which includes registration for the online courses 101, 102, 103, 104 and 105 in addition to 2 days live with the instructors. This will be further explained by clicking into Workshop 200.
Workshop 200 and 300 are for the allied health professional that wishes to transition into the role of a specialist in driving and community mobility or who is developing a new driver evaluation program or updating an existing program. The only prerequisites for workshops 200 and 300 are proof of an allied health degree/license, and a certificate of completion for Workshop 200 before registering for 300. You may register simultaneously for Workshops 200 and 300.
NOTE: Adaptive Mobility Services, Inc. does not provide professional certification in this area as that is offered through professional organizations. However, our workshops will assist in preparing one for readiness for the current certification programs.
In the 12 years that I have been practicing as an OT, this is one of the first courses I've been to that I've actually learned so much and enjoyed at the same time.
Upon completion of both courses, I felt extremely prepared to take the Certification exam to earn my CDRS.
Carol and Susan's years of experience and case studies have taught me how to think out of the little box we find ourselves stuck in as clinicians addressing community mobility.Read more reviews »
