Hybrid Vestibular Rehabilitation & Concussion Certification

The American Institute of Balance is excited to announce the Vestibular Rehabilitation Certification workshop is now available in a hybrid model, consisting of combined online and live components! It is the same content as the well-respected AIB live, 3-day Vestibular Rehabilitation Certification Workshop, with less travel and time away from home and work required! This new platform allows the clinician the flexibility to complete the online portion of the course at a self-pace without the demand of attending a pre-determined, scheduled workshop. This combined 19.5-hour course consists of 12.0 hours of self-paced online content, followed by a one-day, 7.5-hour live course.

After completion of the online component, participants have the option to attend the one-day hands-on clinical competency course. This will be conducted in 11 major US cities as the final component for certification. To ensure a complete, comprehensive learning experience, we encourage participants to attend the one-day, live, hands-on course AFTER completion of the online course.

Canalith repositioning maneuvers (CRM) and vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) protocols are included as part of the comprehensive management plan for identifiable vestibular and balance system disorders. Evidence-based integration into management principles will be disseminated throughout both the online and live components of the course.
