Course Description:

LSVT Global requires all LSVT BIG Certified Clinicians to take the online LSVT BIG® Renewal Course once every two years in order to maintain treatment fidelity. The Online LSVT BIG Certification Renewal Course provides the most current advances and research related to LSVT BIG. Given that the success and efficacy of LSVT BIG is based on strict adherence to the treatment protocol, it is important that all LSVT BIG Certified Clinicians keep their treatment skills up to date with any new scientific or clinical practice advances. The fundamental treatment principles and rationale for renewal will be reviewed, along with a research update, and discussion of implementation tips and resources available for LSVT BIG Certified Clinicians. Teaching methods include pre-recorded lecture, video demonstrations, and knowledge review questions at the end of each module. An examination will be given at the end with an 80% score required to pass.

Prerequisite: Attendees must have completed the LSVT BIG Training and Certification Course.
