  • Certification requirements
  • Breast cancer types, stages, and surgeries
  • Breast physiology and pathophysiology
  • Measuring for fitting
  • Selecting product
  • Fitting room etiquette
  • Regulatory and ethical considerations for patient management

The ABC’s of Fitting Beyond Fitting: Cornerstones to Success course is an extension of the Basic Foundations of Fitting course and is recognized by both ABC and BOC as a “Continuing Education” course for an experienced fitter. This course explores critical topics, such as billing, more deeply than time allows for in the Basic Foundations of Fitting course.

Class content includes:

  • Breast Cancer
  • Anatomy, Physiology & Pathophysiology
  • Types of Breast Cancer
  • Stages of Breast Cancer
  • Cell Grade of Breast Cancer
