Get LSVT® Certified before your upcoming Spring and Summer Clinicals!

Students, you have invested countless hours in the classroom and now it’s time to put your skills to practice during your upcoming clinical experiences.  Becoming LSVT BIG® or LSVT LOUD® Certified as a student is a great way to take your skills to the next level before you graduate!

Four reasons why you should get certified while you are a student.

You will demonstrate ambition and achievement that is above and beyond an already
rigorous course load. Your future employers are sure to notice.

The number of people living with Parkinson’s is on the rise. Therapists with a special expertise in Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions are needed to help them live their best lives. Graduate with confidence that you know exactly how to effectively help them.

 Getting certified as a student may provide you with the opportunity to practice your LSVT techniques under the mentorship of an LSVT Certified Clinician during your clinicals – an opportunity to sharpen your skills that licensed professionals do not get. Take advantage!

Students receive a discounted rate. Always. For all options, you will never pay full price if you are a student. We want you to be able to graduate with a strong foundation and confidence to treat patients with Parkinson’s and other conditions.

Getting certified in LSVT BIG or LSVT LOUD is easy and something you can even do during your clinical’s. 

Option 1: Register for the Online LSVT BIG or LSVT LOUD Training and Certification Course.

Complete the training on your own or with a group of fellow students! These courses are pre-recorded, so you can learn anytime, anywhere. You have 60 days to complete the training and the certification exam is built right into the course.

New in 2022, all online learners are welcome to join an optional virtual practice session after they complete the course. This enables to you to receive expert feedback and the opportunity to practice with volunteers who have Parkinson’s via Zoom.

If you have a group of students who want to get LSVT Certified, learn about our University training program. We show faculty how to utilize the Online LSVT BIG or LSVT LOUD Training and Certification Course can be used as an enhanced learning opportunity for a group of students.

This model allows students to benefit from hands on practice with each other and discuss course topics as a group. Faculty can also get certified along with your students. Download this free University Training Guide to learn more!

Option 2: Register for a Virtual Live LSVT BIG or LSVT LOUD Training and Certification Course.

In this course, you’ll do a few hours of pre-recorded learning on your own, and then you’ll attend two days of live instruction via Zoom.  You will be able to ask questions live, practice with other students and clinicians and even volunteers with Parkinson’s.

For those of you SLP students who are more interested in pediatrics than geriatrics, we have a brand new LSVT LOUD for KIDS course. Be sure to check it out!

Students always receive a discounted rate. Always.

For all options, you will never pay full price if you are a student, because we want you to be able to graduate with a strong foundation and confidence to treat patients with Parkinson’s and other conditions.

The student rate is only $325, and a group of five or more students who register together will receive a group rate of $295 per student. In some cases, faculty can get trained at discounted rate as well.

After you graduate…

You might be wondering if you are required to retake the course or pay an additional fee to become officially LSVT Certified after you graduate if you were certified as student. Absolutely not.  Once you are LSVT Certified as a student you are officially LSVT Certified.
