Kassel Group was formed in 2004 to serve as a sponsor of orthotic related educational programs for healthcare professionals wishing to achieve or maintain certification. Our attendees have come from the O&P, certified pedorthist, DME, pharmacy and allied health industries, and span the experience range from entry level fitter to experienced certified orthotists and prosthetists, certified pedorthists, physical or occupational therapists, athletic trainers, RNs and even MDs.
Kassel Group Inc is an independent education company dedicated to providing quality educational programs without any specific company sponsorship. According to President Robert Meier, CO, this limits the “sales pitch” during the ATi orthotic fitter school that makes up so much of other company sponsored programs. “We pride ourselves in our independent approach, and in doing so, can provide greater educational content without having to promote a certain product or brand” states Mr. Meier.
During the latest reporting period, applicants taking the ABC orthotic fitter certification exam had a 63% average passing rate while ATi attendees passed the ABC exam at a 69% rate.
BOC had an average passing rate of 59% while ATi attendees passed the BOC certification exam at a 79% rate.
