Sclerotherapy Training and Hands-On Certification

Since 2008, PracticalCME has been a leader in small-group, hands-on Sclerotherapy Training.  With over 100 million Americans with visible cosmetic spider veins, your market is virtually unlimited.  As a result, over 98% of our attendees rate our Sclerotherapy Training Course “excellent” and would recommend PracticalCME’s certification to a friend or colleague.

FAST TRACK™ Online plus Live Hands-On Blended Dual Certification

Since 2012, we have pioneered FAST TRACK™ Training.  This gives every live course participant…What Is Foam Sclerotherapy and What It Involves

  • A full 4 hour streaming, interactive online presentation complete with narrated treatment videos.
  • Because the online learning begins from the moment you place your order, you can learn at your own pace.
  • Print your online CME certificate after passing the online post-test.
  • Then, attend the live hands-on for an additional 4 CME hour certificate.
  • Hands-on courses are limited to 6 providers for each 1 MD instructor.

One-on-On Small Group Sclerotherapy Hands-On Training.

PracticalCME spends a greater percentage of our live contact time doing hands-on instruction than any other Sclerotherapy Course, anywhere.

Because our MD instructors average 10 years of experience, your semi-private hands-on experience is second to none.  We use a latex vein injection traininer in addition to real patients of your choice.  In addition, PracticalCME never charges you for sclerosant, gloves and syringes used in hands-on.  We provide everything for a great hands-on experience.

8 AMA Category 1 level CME credits with Dual Certification

Because our courses are backed by the gold standard in CME certification, you can rest assured that you are receiving the best training with no sponsorship or bias whatsoever.  Use your online certificate to set up your accounts to purchase sclerotherapy agents, then use your hands-on certificate for your liability insurance.  FAST TRACK™ gets you ready to begin treating patients immediately when you return to the office.

Sclerotherapy Training for MD’s, DO’s, NP’s, PA’s,  and RN’s.

PracticalCME has always maintained the most inclusive training for a wide variety of healthcare professionals.  Since our courses are only taught by experienced MD’s, your certificates will always be valid for your professional certification.  Other courses taught by RN’s cannot certify higher level providers like NP’s, PA’s and MD’s.

Why Choose PracticalCME for your Sclerotherapy Certification Training?

  1. Experienced: First, we have been in business since 2008 and have only MD instructors with at least 10 years’ experience.
  2. Dependability: Also, PracticalCME has never cancelled a class.
  3. Comprehensive: Spend as much time as you need on the online materials.  Receive free updates and re-review as often as needed for 2 full years after purchase.
  4. Prepared: Because everyone learns the online material in advance, you already know the basics when you attend the live date.
  5. Personalized: Since no hands-on class has more than 6 participants, you will get the most personalized, one-on-one instruction.
  6. Helpful: Customizable consents and patient instruction forms can be downloaded from the online course for use in your own practice.

How the Best Doctors, Nurses, and Mid-Levels Learn Sclerotherapy

Nobody learns how to treat spider veins of the legs in their basic medical or nursing education.  These cosmetic injection procedures do not belong to any one specialty or group of providers.  For over a decade, PracticalCME has provided inclusive hands-on training courses for all eligible practitioners.  It is our goal to provide you safe, evidence-based certification training before, during, and after the live hands-on training date.  And our physician faculty members will continue to support you while you transition from student to provider in these services.

With our unique FAST TRACK™ Sclerotherapy classes you are ready to practice your new procedure in 3 easy steps…

  1. Watch the narrated online content at your own pace.
  2. Attend the live review of the protocols, Q&A, and hands-on training (private one-on-one available on a patient you bring)
  3. Begin practicing and re-review the online content when necessary

Over 96% of our attendees rate our training for Sclerotherapy “excellent” and would recommend PracticalCME’s certification to a friend or colleague.

Why Choose PracticalCME?

Excellence in CME Training Since 2008

  • Of all the CME courses I have taken in an effort to expand my medical practice, I can say without hesitation that PracticalCME's lectures have been the most well-presented, memorable, and enjoyable.

  • Joseph Johnson, MDSclerotherapy

    The Sclerotherapy training was comprehensive, providing the newest and safest techniques. I also did private, hands-on training with the instructor that quickly brought me from novice to proficiency, leaving me confident that I could do this in my practice. This has been a lot of fun and is about twice as profitable as seeing regular patients. Results have been fantastic, and there is little cost involved in this technique. It is much more comfortable, effective and has fewer side effects than treatments with the laser I used to use.

  • Jennifer Canesi, NPSclerotherapy Online Course

    I found the online sclerotherapy course to be excellent. I had taken a sclerotherapy course last year, but found it to be very inadequate. Your course covered everything I needed to know about the subject and I feel as though I as a practitioner will benefit greatly from it and my patients will be very thankful. I can honestly say it was money well spent.

  • Tara WoodTara R Wood, DO

    The didactics and practical portion of the class were outstanding. I felt prepared to start cosmetic injections after the class. Everything was explained and taught so clearly. I am looking forward to other Practical CME classes
