From November 2019 until 31 December 2020, recognition and/or accreditation of lymphoedema training by the ALA is transitioning to a new model. All providers of lymphoedema training wishing to be accredited from 1 January 2021 must submit their application and be approved before that date noting that a period of 3 months should be allowed for ALA review and approval.
Providers not previously recognised by the ALA as well as all re-accrediting providers are required to meet the new model for accredited lymphoedema training should they wish their graduating students to be eligible to become an ALA Accredited Lymphoedema Practitioner.
All enquiries relating to accreditation of lymphoedema training should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Practitioners who graduate from one of the following lymphoedema training courses prior to 31 December 2020 will meet the entry level criteria with respect to lymphoedema training as set out under the Accredited Lymphoedema Practitioner Program (ALPP):
