The Equinosis Practitioner Certification Program
The mission of the Equinosis Practitioner Certification Program is to instill capable and confident objective evaluators and Equinosis Q users by standardizing and defining the skills and knowledge required of those offering objective lameness evaluation services.
If used correctly, inertial sensors will measure precisely how the patient moves. A capable objective lameness evaluator understands not only how to collect the data, but how to apply the biomechanical principles in a clinical setting.
The Program advances objective lameness care through a structured, competency-based training program, ensuring participants are educated in providing a properly informed evaluation.
Equinosis created the Program to encourage training participation and to distinguish those who make the effort to master the material.
To qualify and participate in the certification program, licensed veterinarians must be Equinosis Q users, utilizing the latest software version of Lameness Locator, and be a current Equinosis Objective Evaluation Support (OES) member. Current users who are interested in certification and are unsure about their OES status or need assistance updating their software can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
