The livestream webinar version of this course applies to CHT/CHRNs or those pursuing CHT/CHRN added qualification through the NBDHMT.

This course also applies to those pursuing CHS/CHWS through the American Board of Wound Healing (ABWH).

Please note that the American Board of Wound Healing (ABWH) offers added qualifications similar to those offered by the NBDHT. The ABWH offers Certified Hyperbaric Specialist (CHS) and Certified Hyperbaric & Wound Specialist (CHWS). The UHMS recognizes both CHT/CHRN and CHS/CHWS - you can find the UHMS position statement here.

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 approval to hold 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.
