ERA Virtual Coming in 2021!

The ERA Virtual is approved for 2021 by ABPTS and the Sports Council due to the limitations on travel and risks for health care providers. In-person courses are still being offered in small groups at various locations around the US, but for those who cannot travel or are concerned about risk, we will offer the ERA Virtual (ERA-V) beginning in January 2021.

There are some key differences regarding registration, prerequisite work, and needed supplies. Please review all instructions when registering.
