All of the IWA courses and certifications have been designed by an Educational Committee consisting of Physical and Occupational Therapists as well as Athletic Trainers. For that reason, all of our courses prepare you to work with both the healthy and injured population. Whether you are training clients in the gym or working with rehab patients in the clinic, the IWA courses and certifications offer the knowledge and credibility to excel as both therapist and trainer.

The distinction of the IWA courses and certifications begins with the prerequisites for registration. All registrants must be a Physical Therapist, Physical Therapist Assistant, Occupational Therapist, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Athletic Trainer, or have earned a Bachelors Degree in the field.
