OPGA, VGM Education Expand Educational Offering to Members

OPGA is excited to announce that members can now access 20 complimentary CE courses through their educational offering with VGM Education.

“OPGA is very grateful to have worked with VGM Education to expand this educational offering to serve our members’ need for education while also enhancing the value of OPGA membership,” says Adam Miller, President of OPGA. “This offering is an exclusive benefit for OPGA members and adds significant value to membership.”

Worth over $1,000 in value, these courses are intended to help members learn about running a profitable and efficient O&P business. In addition to the original ten courses that have been available to OPGA members since 2023, these additional courses include topics like documentation prior to claim submission, Medicare appeals process, communication strategies and etiquette, retaining existing customers, and more.

Each of these courses are The Board of Certification/Accreditation (BOC) certified, and some are also American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics (ABC) certified.

"OPGA knows how important education is to helping members grow their O&P business,” continues Miller. “The additional courses will continue to help members learn about running a profitable and efficient business.”
