After acceptance into the program, each participant will receive a confirmation letter indicating the exact starting and ending times. as well as pertinent information about the location of the course.
For exact class hours, dates and times, please refer to the information provided in your confirmation letter and/or refer to the website For example, the CSLC Lymphedema Therapy Certification Course provides a minimum of 135 hours of instruction: 45 hours of On-line Home Study plus 90 hours of classroom instruction over an amount of days as designated by the class schedule. Classes normally start at 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
A 45-hr Home-Study Course will be sent to the participant and must be completed prior to the class. This portion of the training provides extensive information about the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system and lymphedema. It facilitates a smooth entry and progression through the in-classroom instruction. The Home-Study Course consists of an Online Module with multiple lessons and an electronic Home-Study Course Manual. The successful completion of the online lessons and accompanying online quizzes is required prior to the first day of class.
Tuition & Refund Policy
Lymphedema Therapy Certification Course
The total tuition for the course is $2,800.00. A deposit of $500.00 is required at the time of registration and will hold your spot until the total amount is due three (3) weeks prior to the first day of class. Please note that $250.00 of the deposit is non- refundable. After receipt of the Home-Study materials, the full deposit of $500.00 will become non-refundable. Withdrawal or dismissal of a student after the class has started, but prior to 50% completion of the class, will result in a refund of 50% of the entire tuition. The total amount of $2,800.00 will become non-refundable after 50% of the class is completed regardless of the reason for withdrawal or dismissal.
Due to LANA requirements, 100% attendance is required. Participants who miss more than five (5) hours of course time may not be permitted to take the final exam and, therefore, will not receive a Certificate of Completion. The class hours are 8:00am to 8:pm for nine consecutive days and are detailed in your confirmation letter. The additional 45 hours of home study are expected with the completed exams. All students must be in class on time.
BSOILS will share your business contact information and email address with other students in the class. BSOILS will also provide this information to the vendors who, as part of your class, are providing you with an extensive amount of valuable professional supplies at no cost to you.
Certificate of Completion
In order to receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the Lymphedema Therapy Certification Course, the tuition must be paid in full with all required documentation submitted and the participant must pass both the written and practical exams as required by the instructor. BSOILS will gladly replace lost or damaged certificates at the request of the student. The first replacement certificate is complimentary; additional replacement certificates will be subject to a $15.00 fee plus the cost for postage.
Scope of Certificate/Certification
While the purpose of this course is to prepare the participant to work with and/or on patients with lymphedema, this lymphedema therapy certification must be regarded as adjunct to your existing professional license/diploma, e.g. physical or occupational therapy license. Therapists treating patients with lymphedema must be in possession of an active license/diploma and work in compliance with the scope/guide of practice set forth for their State professional Board. This lymphedema therapy certification is not a “stand-alone” certification.
Cancellation of Classes
If a course is cancelled due to an insufficient number of registrations, all moneys received will be refunded or transferred to another class as elected by the registrant. In case of cancellation of the class for any other reason, a new course will be scheduled and all payments will be transferred. In the event that the presenter falls ill, the class will be rescheduled.
Withdrawal and Dismissal
Withdrawal from the program may result in a loss of the student’s deposit/tuition moneys. Any participant may be dismissed from the program for insufficient progress, non-payment of tuition, or non-attendance. Reinstatement following dismissal is up to the discretion of the instructor. For applicable refunds, please refer to the refund policy on page 1 of this agreement.
Failing the Course
While BSOILS has a very high pass rate in our Lymphedema Therapy Certification Courses, occasionally, a student is unable to satisfactorily complete the written and/or practical exams. These students will not be awarded a Certificate of Completion. However, these students will be allowed to repeat the course one (1) additional time within one (1) year at no tuition expense to re-learn the concepts of lymphedema therapy and attempt to satisfactorily complete the exams. Should the participant fail to retake the course within one (1) year from the time of the original course date or fail to complete the course successfully for a second time, the student may enroll again by paying the full course tuition. Any tuition discounts for students repeating the course a third time is at the sole discretion of BSOILS.
Purpose of Training/Non-Compete
The participant agrees that the purpose of the BSOILS Lymphedema Certification course is to provide training and certification for the procedures known as Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) and Decongestive Lymphatic Therapy (DLT) plus other lymphedema-related topics. The student shall not, under any condition, solicit for competing purposes, the training and certification of other therapists. Although the student is free to distribute information concerning lymphedema, the student shall not be permitted to train nor certify any other person in MLD and/or DLT unless granted instructor privileges under Casley-Smith guidelines.
