All courses have been created to address the challenges that medical equipment professionals face. Each course is written by experts who have performed the duties in the field interacting with real customers and solving real problems. Course authors include registered nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, accountants, billing and collections experts and human resources professionals.

Our courses are not “brochures” from manufacturers or from consultants who have never worked in the medical equipment, pharmacy, or homecare industries. Our courses cover customer service, billing, collections, equipment delivery, management, inventory control, pharmacy services, safety, and compliance with federal laws and accreditation regulations.
