Published in Member Communities on December 04, 2019

U.S. Rehab and VGM are excited to announce the dates and locations for the 2020 Tech Training seminars: 

  • April 14-15, 2020: Orlando, Florida
  • TBD – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  • June 15–17, 2020: Heartland Conference, Waterloo, Iowa 
  • Oct. 13–14, 2020: Austin, Texas

Be sure to stay tuned for more details regarding updates, registration information, venue locations, and more at U.S. Rehab's Tech Training website.  

This year, the Tech Training seminars will also provide technicians with the opportunity to take the DMERT certification exam immediately following the 2-day training. The DMERT certification is a new standard and benchmark in the durable medical equipment (DME) and complex rehab (CRT) industry. More information regarding the certification testing will be provided soon. 

Why should I send my tech to Tech Training? 

U.S. Rehab Tech Training seminars allow repair technicians the opportunity to receive hands-on training and learn about product specifics from a wide variety of manufacturers in the industry, basic repair strategies, programming, the essentials of what it takes to run a service department, what is necessary in order to prevent seating and postural issues, how to accurately troubleshoot complex systems, and if they pass the final exam, their company will receive special pricing discounts on select vendor products.  

According to CMS DMEPOS Quality Standards, all complex rehab providers must have at least one trained technician available to service each location appropriately depending on the size and scope of its business. A trained technician meets the following standards: 

✔ Able to program and repair sophisticated electronics associated with power wheelchairs, alternative drive controls, and power seating systems. 

✔ Complete at least 10 hours annually of continuing education specific to rehab technology. 

✔ Experience in the field of rehab technology (for example, on-the-job training, familiarity with rehabilitative clients, products, and services). 

✔ Factory trained by each member manufacturer of the products supplied by the company. 

These seminars are a one-stop shop that helps technicians meet these CMS DMEPOS Quality Standards.
