    Usually the insulin pump company themself provides the education and certifies you as a pump trainer. Usually they do not certify someone unless they are already in the diabetes specialty. As far as reimbursements for staring an insulin pump for a company - yes. The company will pay you to be a starter. But the catch is, you need diabetes experience before a company considers training and certifying you as a trainer

    Thanks for the info, the reason I ask is because my Doc that I work for has asked me if I would consider being trained to do this inside her practice. Since this post she has contacted Medtronic for me to begin. I am alittle nervous but hey who isn't when they try something new. Thanks again for the info
