Peachtree City, GA (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
If you’ve ever wanted to get a “leg up” on knowledge about the circulatory system, compression stockings, varicose veins or leg health, now’s your chance. SIGVARIS is offering several exciting new educational opportunities to help expand your knowledge.
These new educational opportunities from SIGVARIS include webinars, two online training courses (a basic and an advanced course), a two hour in-service to increase product knowledge, and a one day in-person course for those interested in becoming a SIGVARIS Certified Fitter. SIGVARIS has also partnered with the International Lymphedema and Would Care Training Institute (ILWTI) to offer a two-day seminar on wound care and edema at the SIGVARIS manufacturing facility in Peachtree City, GA on September 24-25.
“Sometimes it’s difficult to take time away from the office to attend a continuing education opportunity,” says Judith Brannan, SIGVARIS Education and Medical Affairs Manager in North America. “These new opportunities make it easy to work continuing education into a busy schedule and still have the flexibility to also attend a seminar. Our goal is to provide people with as many different opportunities as possible to expand their knowledge.”
