ARC Seminars sets itself apart from the competition in many ways!

  • ARC Seminars is run by a group of practicing clinicians- so we have been where you are! This Head and Neck CA course is taught by an OT/CLT experienced and working in this field everyday.
  • Most courses are aimed at the widest audience possible, in order to get as many participants as possible. While that can be a great way of getting professionals from different fields together, it is not always conducive to working through specific problems, and can make the information very vague, theoretical, and general. ARC Seminars are specific to the field of rehabilitation, and we have many years of experience in treating and developing procedures for treatment in rehabilitation settings.
  • We provide guidance and support for setting upΒ your own program!Β ARC Seminars not only provide education and guidance within the seminar to set up your own program, but we will also provide you with follow-up guidance and support after the seminar to ensure that your program is successful!
  • ARC Seminars uses the most up-to-date and evidence-based techniques to ensure your participation in the course is translated to the most learning and carryover possible!
  • Materials: You will be provided with a comprehensive manual of all the presentation slides, Β exclusive access to specially developed tools and resources related to the course content, and ongoing support and guidance!
