U.S. Rehab revamps training program
WATERLOO, Iowa – U.S. Rehab, a division of The VGM Group, has revamped its popular Tech Training program to provide a “deeper dive” into repairs for power mobility equipment. The program now has two tracks: online training for newer repair techs; and in-person, advanced training for techs with two or more years of experience. Training will be provided by Richard Fuller of Richard Fuller Consulting; Elizabeth Cole, clinical director of U.S. Rehab; and Permobil, Invacare, Motion Concepts and Sunrise Medical. “Problem areas will be frankly discussed,” stated Greg Packer, president of U.S. Rehab, in a press release. “This is not a sales pitch posing as a tech seminar.” U.S. Rehab will offer advanced training on May 4-6 in California; June 16-18 at the Heartland Conference in Waterloo, Iowa; Aug. 3-5 in Dallas; and Oct. 12-14 in Atlanta. Those who complete the program will receive 2.1 continuing education units. The fee is $450 for VGM/U.S. Rehab members and $500 for non-members.
