Focus – Steampunk Bionics Academy only does full time education. Our multiple fully functional facilities are dedicated to one thing: Providing the learner with the best educational experience in the USA and beyond.
Technology – Our advanced technology includes scanners, a dedicated 3D printer lab, CNC mills and CAD workstations. Our Learning Management system allows us to track student progress in real time and to assist us in ensuring student success through communication and interaction. Our “Virtual Patients” allow a safe space for students to assess, create and implement treatment plans on patients in real world scenarios.
Options – Whether you decide to attend the five-day live class portion at our main lab in Tulsa Oklahoma, our sister lab in Jacksonville Florida, or one of our scheduled mobile classes at our vendor partner locations, you have options. Our “Pedorthics on the Move” self-contained, ADA compliant, fully equipped diesel bus can bring the Pedorthic lab and classroom components to your location! Additionally, our “Pedorthics in a Box” program can bring the Pedorthic lab and classroom components to your space. So many options!
Personal – We choose to keep our classes small, limited to six students or less. We have learned over the last two decades of teaching pedorthics and O & P that students in larger classes don’t receive the one-on-one that they expect and deserve. This is an investment in both time and money.
Student Success – The student has access to all online content for one year. This allows plenty of time for the student to review and study for their Board exam, further ensuring student success.
Industry Support – Many vendors have donated or provided reduced cost goods and equipment to our program. They are excited to see new Pedorthists enter the field and are very supportive of Steampunk Bionics Academy’s success.
Affordable – Classes start at $3500. Our classes are not only affordable but come with payment plans if needed. We use ShopPay for those wanting to make installments. The advantage of having multiple class locations often means less travel for students. The additional option of having the classroom come to your location can mean thousands saved in travel and lodging expenses, and less time spent away from family, loved ones and work.
