ASPIRE OMT is a post-professional planned learning experience that focuses on evidence based clinical practice, mentorship, and education. In the ASPIRE system, clinical reasoning and biomechanics are given a strong emphasis.  The institute is formatted to allow flexibility for professionals to advance at their own pace as time, finances, and experience allows. The structured programing is designed to take clinicians from new graduates to skilled professional, with a steady progression of skills.  There are 11 courses that make up the core curriculum. They are offered in 3 day sessions(1 online, and 2 on-site). The faculty and lab assistants provide courses that are heavy in the lab portion, giving time for guidance to allow our clinicians to excel in competency. When the first 6 courses are completed, the clinicians may take oral examinations and earn a certificate of manual therapy(COMT). After the final 5 courses and examination, they will earn a certification in Spinal Manipulative Therapy(SMT).  These courses can also be taken as CEU’s(21 hrs per course).
