    Are There Pre-requisites for Taking the Course? (Video)

    We often get the question, "Are there pre-requisites for taking the CHT course?"

    The "CHT course" as students often refer to it is actually called, Introduction to Hyperbaric Medicine. It is the 40-hour basic training course in hyperbaric medicine and it is required if you are seeking an added qualification of CHT (Certified Hyperbaric Technologist through the NBDHMT) or CHS (Certified Hyperbaric Specialist through ABWH); or if you are a physician who will be supervising and billing for hyperbaric oxygen therapy and are seeking privileges in your hospital.

    We hold the basic training course each month across the U.S. throughout the year.

COVID-19 Contingency Plan for Training

Wound Care Education Partners is implementing a "COVID-19 Contingency Plan" for moving forward with hyperbaric training. Wound Care Education Partners has received UHMS and BNA approval to hold the didactic/lecture modules of the hyperbaric training via live stream webinar format. Instruction will be the same as a face to face training, with the goal of reducing human-to-human physical contact and reducing travel.

This course will provide you with basic training or continuing education in hyperbaric medicine.

Licenses Eligible for CME/CEUs: MD, DO DPM (Florida only), RN, LPN, CNS, ARNP, CRT, RRT, RCP

Important Notes: 

CHRNs, while the BNA has approved this livestream training format, the NBDHMT has decided they will not allow livestream participants to sit for CHRN exam. We are working with the NBDHMT and BNA and hope this will change in the future. We will continue to update this page as we get updates. 

CHTs and students pursuing CHT added qualification are not eligible to attend the livestream webinar course days; you will need to attend all 40 hours in-person later this year.

Physician Assistant (PA) CMEs: PA’s will receive a letter that states the educational activity was certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ and the hours earned; the letter can be submitted to your licensing board.

4th day - The 4th day of the course is the chamber and TCOM practicum day, and needs to be done in person.
