PRIDE MOBILITY AND QUANTUM REHAB ANNOUNCE NEW 2011 PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP
EXETER, PA - February 2, 2011 - Pride Mobility Products Corporation and Quantum Rehab are pleased to announce the new 2011 Professional Education Partnership, formerly known as the Pride U and Quantum University Seminar Tour.
The Seminar Tour was renamed to Professional Education Partnership to more fully reflect and encompass all that Pride and Quantum deliver to providers and clinicians. The name also more aptly describes the scope of the educational services offered beyond the annual scheduled, instructional seminars throughout the country. The Professional Education Partnership is available at industry trade shows such as Medtrade Spring and Fall, the International Seating Symposium, and makes frequent on-site training visits to rehab facilities and veterans organizations.
"At Pride Mobility and Quantum Rehab, we have always understood that being a true partner to our providers requires that we deliver carefully developed value-added services to help them better meet their patients' needs while helping their business maintain maximum efficiency. The 2011 Professional Education Partnership is a culmination of that philosophy," said Dan Fedor, General Manager of Education & Compliance.
The Professional Education Partnership sessions present providers with the opportunity to stay current on product features and functionality and obtain the contact hours (CECs) and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) required by many state and national governing bodies. Beginning in 2011, the Professional Education Partnership will become an International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) authorized provider of CEUs.
"This transition strengthens our current continuing education policies and procedures and exemplifies our drive to offer the highest level training available in the industry," said Fedor. "This change will also expand Pride and Quantum's capabilities to provide informative CEU courses that increase participant knowledge and implement real-world product applications."
IACET requires authorized providers to adhere to internationally recognized continuing education and training standards. IACET CEUs are accepted by RESNA for the ATP certification renewal, the American Occupational Therapy Association and individual Physical Therapy state associations. In addition to the accredited courses, Pride also makes available company experts in the fields of technical training, product research, design, testing, electronics, mechanical functionality, and funding in order to enhance providers' expertise in the mobility products industry.
