"I took the Wound Certification Prep Course and then passed the exam the next day. I’m not sure that I would have passed if I hadn’t taken the exam right away, as most of the questions were based on the material covered in the course and the retention factor is always an issue. It was very convenient."

Carole Lowenstein, ANP, MSN, CWS

“The Wound Certification Prep Course not only prepared me for the CSWP® exam, but more importantly, it served as a good review of wound care knowledge and helped me retool my clinical approach.”

- Carl Van Gils, DPM, MS, CWSP

"The WCPC was absolutely worth every bit of time and money spent as a preparation for the CWS® exam. I was completely prepared and passed the exam."
