Rehabilitation For Recently Reanimated

Therapists who have entered the new field of Recently ReAnimated Therapy may find themselves searching for continuing education courses as the first renewal period for RRA/T licenses creeps closer. Even as the streets are being swept clean of the RRA, the relocation and quarantine camps for the infected are swelling, and the need for qualified therapists is growing. Course development in this area has been somewhat slow to adapt, however,, an approved RRA/T provider, offers many online classes that may be adapted for RRA therapy. We hope to have several new RRA/T classes completed and on the market before the December 31st deadline, including "No More Shuffling: Gait Correction Techniques for Bipedal RRAs", "New Ways to Communicate With Your Dead Client", "Dietary Concerns for RRA, Module 1: Rodents, Small Marsupials and Waterfowl" and "Dietary Concerns for RRA, Module 2: The Effects of Decaying Flesh in the RRA Gastrointestinal Tract". Here are a few of our current courses that are currently approved for your RRA/T CE requirements (Please note: As these courses must be modified to treat the RRA, only partial contact hours are credited):
