Training courses for Technicians

ORTHOTIC TRAINING

The Technician committee of BAPO in association with Algeos are looking to put together some training courses for Technicians.  These courses will take place at Algeos training facility in Liverpool and may be one day courses or two day courses depending on the subject.  We have access to local hotels to put attendees up.  We hope that the courses will also have practical elements to them.

We hope that the courses will be able to attract funding from the OETT this means that the attendees will be able to claim back from OETT the cost of the course, travel to the course and up to £60 per night’s accommodation.

Now the hard bit what subject would you like to see us cover.  I have started a thread over on the forum page and I would like to ask you to take time to visit the forum and post your views.

Technician Awareness Day

Once again we have lined up three excellent speakers who will present on the following topics:-

1. The Role of the Support Worker in O&P
2. Risk assessment in the Workplace
3. What a Patient needs from their Technician

All subjects which are very relevant to Orthotic and Prosthetic Technicians. Technicians who attend the Awareness Day Course will qualify for a reduction in their Conference registration fee. You could attend Conference for as little as £26!!

To assist employers/individuals with costs delegates are encouraged to apply to the OETT for reimbursement of expenses which can include course fees, return travel and one nights’ accommodation. Information on criteria and application form are available at www.bapo.com

All attendees will be presented with a certificate of attendance which can be used as evidence for your CPD.
