FNMOC1.2 Functional Neurology Management of Concussion –
Start: 1st August 2022

Online Learning, United States of America
This 2-level program is utilizing a specific pedagogy to ensure the best learning experience for attending clinicians, while also making it available to clinicians worldwide.
Flipped Classroom – A flipped classroom is a style of blended learning that introduces crucial foundational concepts before the main lectures and applications are taught. This allows all scholars to enter the main program on the same level and encourages deeper learning on more advanced topics during the main lectures.
Interactive Asynchronous Learning – Interactive asynchronous learning allows you to learn on your own schedule. The main lectures are pre-recorded and will be available 24/7 on your online learning portal. Our online learning features interaction through knowledge-check questions embedded throughout the lectures, quizzing, and submission of open-ended written competency evaluations. The material will remain on your learning portal as long as one maintains an active Carrick Institute account. We encourage scholars to review the material several times for the best learning experience.
Onsite-Learning – To achieve certification status, one must attend the onsite portion for each level. The onsite learning will carefully instruct clinicians on the hands-on skills they need to know for proficiency in the management and rehabilitation of concussions.
Level 1 & Level 2 both have an onsite module that is required to attend to receive certification status.
- Level 1 – Chapter 4 (Creating and Performing a Baseline Assessment): 3 days onsite (25 neurology hours)
- Level 2 – Chapter 8 (Therapeutic Procedures Workshop): 3 days onsite (25 neurology hours)
Those who complete Level 1 & Level 2 of Functional Neurology Management of Concussion will be eligible to sit for the FABBIR board examination from the ACFN.
