When faced with illness, we strive to find healthcare practitioners with the highest level of expertise. Lymphology Association of North America (LANA) certification allows the lymphedema patient to identify therapists who have at least 135 hours of training through a qualified school that has honed their lymphedema therapy skills. The LANA certified therapist has passed a voluntary North American certification examination that tests the therapist’s knowledge of lymphedema management. The LANA certified therapist has demonstrated continued education and professional growth through the LANA recertification program. By choosing to be LANA certified, you are affirming your commitment to delivering the best lymphedema care. You are allowing your clients and colleagues to know that they have chosen a highly trained expert in lymphedema management.
LANA therapists whose certifications expire in 2013 must submit an application for recertification or an application for inactive status postmarked by December 31st 2013. Failure to apply for recertification or apply for inactive status by the deadline will place the therapist in expired status. Please click on LANA Recertification on the left side of this screen under BROWSE LANA for further details on how to apply. (Please note there has been a change in the deadline for therapists due to expire in the Spring. LANA has extended their deadline as there will be one expiration this year).
Effective January 1st, 2013: THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE LYMPHOLOGY ASSOCIATION OF NORTH AMERICA HAS REVISED THE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS TO SIT FOR THE LANA EXAMINATION. Applicants who meet all other requirements will no longer have to obtain one year of experience in treating clients with lymphedema before submitting an application to sit for the exam. This revision is in line with many certifying and licensing bodies that administer their certification examinations soon after completion of training. This change will allow qualified individuals to submit applications in a more flexible time frame throughout the year based on their readiness to take the exam. All other requirements for eligibility are the same. Candidates should refer to the Candidate Information Brochure on the LANA website, www.clt-lana.org.
