Enroll in the Certificate of Competency in Vestibular Rehabilitation (CCVR) 2.0 Course.
The Certificate of Competency in Vestibular Rehabilitation (CCVR) 2.0 Course provides you a convenient and flexible path to advanced training in vestibular rehabilitation through online coursework & in person (or virtual) lab.
Enroll now and save your spot for the January 2024 enrollment! We will get started on January 30, 2024.
This 39-hour evidence-based vestibular competency course was created by healthcare professionals and we recognize that your time is extremely valuable so we’ve designed the curriculum to allow you to participate on your time, when you have time. Upon completion of the online coursework, you will have the opportunity to demonstrate required clinical skills in the in person (or virtual) lab.
With this training, you are more consistently applying your working vocabulary and fundamental concepts into your practice. You begin to delve more deeply and confidently into your skillset. This is the level where your skills more closely match your experience and you’re ready to take an even deeper dive into cases that are best understood through a comprehensive understanding of vestibular-related anatomy and physiology, the advantages/disadvantages of vestibular-related diagnostics, and the uncertainties associated with more complex cases.
The CCVR 2.0 Course content and features continue to evolve. We’ve been busy behind the scenes developing a new online learning platform, 360NeuroGO, to help you succeed through interactive modules, quiz and exam question banks, discussion boards, live chats, and so much more!
Multidisciplinary collaboration in a friendly and judgment-free atmosphere to share your insights and ask questions with the course director, CCVR faculty, current students, and graduates. The coaching calls are held weekly and recorded for later viewing.
We’ve transformed the experience to maximize your training potential and meet all of your on-demand needs. Our content features case studies with subject matter experts who deliver evidence-supported vestibular-related topics. The case-study format is designed to provide a practical, problem-solving application of the more in-depth theoretical framework discussed in the videos.
An ever-growing collection of resources, literature, new articles, new treatment ideas, preparatory quizzes, and case presentations, especially atypical cases + over 20 subject matter experts providing weekly educational lessons on a variety of evidence-supported vestibular-related topics.

+ You can use the designation, Certificate of Competency in Vestibular Rehabilitation**, upon successful completion of our didactic and practical competency-based coursework. This designation, however, is to be spelled-out and not be represented by initials after your name and other degrees and board certifications. You must, however, also know your practice act to be aware of any language that would supersede this. We also encourage you to know the position of your professional association.
Can you help me show my employer the return on investment for this course?
+ Although no course (or even licensure) guarantees that individuals will retain and/or apply skills appropriately, successful completion of competency-based training has shown to result in improved patient outcomes and is cost-effective. Investing in more advanced training is considered a win-win-win. Employers demonstrate an investment in their staff, which can increase confidence and value in the employee as well as decrease staff turn-over. Staff can increase clinical skills and job satisfaction. Patients have better outcomes. Here are 3 points of interest to discuss regarding the return-on-investment (ROI) in competency-based education:
(1) Bottom Line: ROI = Financial Return/Investment: Niche market w/minimal cash investment to treat patients with dizziness and/or balance disorders. Vestibular dysfunction is present in 40-50% of geriatric population with dizziness/imbalance1.
Example: If you add 15 visits a month (1 - 2 patients) with an estimate of $80/visit over just 3 months (45 visits), this results in $3,600 in revenues. When you consider the cost of the CCVR course as a $997 investment, the financial return on investment (ROI) is 260%.
(2) Quality of Care: The Vestibular Disorders Association (VeDA) found that providers who considered/screened for vestibular dysfunction during the initial visit for patients with dizziness resulted in an accurate diagnosis within 1 month versus 8 months when the provider did not consider the vestibular system as a plausible cause2.
(3) Patient-Centered: Studies show vestibular rehabilitation results in better patient outcomes than general therapy and medication alone. Medications continue to be one of the most common treatments for dizziness. Yet, in most cases, effective treatments are available through vestibular rehabilitation without the use of medications that typically hinder the recovery process and increase the risk for falls3-4. Research shows that targeted, customized vestibular rehabilitation results in better patient outcomes versus general therapy and improving patient outcomes is the ultimate goal. Although the bottom line ROI can easily be shown through increased referrals in a niche market with little investment, the true ROI becomes less about bringing in money and more about the patient-centered bottom line through the following: early identification and treatment of the cause(s) of dizziness and/or imbalance, optimal patient outcomes and higher patient satisfaction.
