The Beo Training Center was created to promote a solid curriculum to make students successful.

Beo Training Center was born from a desire to raise the bar in healthcare within our community. We started in 2009, fully licensed by the state of Colorado, with clinical site backing and support. Beo is a locally owned and operated company, which allows us to keep our class sizes small and cater to each individual student.

Rehab/Restorative Training

This program was designed by experienced, hands-on therapists to build on existing fundamentals of nursing.  We omit re-training on basic skills already known to current Certified Nurse Aides, such as infection control and personal care skills.  The purpose of this program is to provide advanced training that broadens the participant’s scope of care in the arenas of Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy.  The eight-hour classes consist of lecture, medical technology reviews, post tests, and lab practicals with proficiency checklists.  Participants receive a certificate of training after each day of module completion.  Your certification makes you a valuable asset to your Rehab facility!

This course is two-days long and the course cost is $400.

“She is so personable and had examples for basically everything.  Its so much easier to learn from someone who has so much experience and genuinely cares about you. The Instructor was wonderful.

It was a very pleasant experience and I appreciate everything that you all have done.

SR  04/13/2017 

“She was very nice, great teacher; if I didn’t understand something, she took the time and explained everything where I fully understood the subject.  

Very patient, smart, caring, and very welcoming.  Each class we started she was always excited and happy to see you, and ready to teach.  She is very professional in every way possible.  

I loved how she compared her past experiences to help the class understand about certain illnesses and how far nursing assistants have come over the years.  I highly recommend everyone to this class.

You know you have a great teacher when you pass each exam and final exam.  All because of her awesome teaching methods.  A wonderful woman and an amazing Nurse!”
