You're busy and we understand! We provide online courses to help you stay up to date on Ottobock products as well as best techniques and practices. The materials below are available to watch at your convenience and revisit at any time.

After passing the quiz, the Ottobock Education Team will follow up via email within 1-2 business days. If the training pertains to products that require Ottobock software, the software download link and installation instructions will be included. Please note that only certified or licensed prosthetists and orthotists qualify to receive a username and unlock-pin to access the software and program the product; we ask that assistants, technicians, and residents work with a certified or licensed prosthetist/orthotist regarding software access.

Where indicated below, ABC will award Category I CEUs for those with certifications in the relevant topic (i.e. certified prosthetists, prosthetic assistants and technicians will receive Category I CEUs for completing a prosthetics course). Per ABC policy, you may only receive credit once for the same distance learning course. This is not once per five-year cycle; duplicate credits will also not be awarded during subsequent MCE cycles.
