Wound Certification Prep Course

The Wound Certification Prep Course (WCPC) is an intensive two-day wound certification prep course for clinicians interested in either preparing for the wound certification board examinations, becoming re-certified, or gaining a better understanding of wound care. It is the only recommended review course by the ABWM Foundation and is a tool to assist you in preparation for Certified Wound Care Associate® (CWCA®), Certified Wound Specialist® (CWS®), and Certified Wound Specialist Physician® (CWSP®) certifications.

You can take the 2-day WCPC course on and on the third day, sit for one of the CWCA®, CWS® or CWSP® wound care certification exams.

Note: You must submit your completed exam application, payment, reference letters and all documentation to ABWM three weeks prior to taking WCPC in order to schedule your certification exam after the WCPC course. There is limited availability so please submit your completed application as soon as possible.

You can find the WCPC live courses, here.


*Please note: Participation in the Wound Certification Prep Course is not mandatory, and will not impact your eligibility to sit for the national certification examinations offered by the American Board of Wound Management.

*Disclaimer: Persons participating in the Wound Certification Prep Course to help prepare for an examination offered by the American Board of Wound Management must realize that there is no guarantee stated or implied that participation will assure passage of an examination.
