Workplace initiatives to prevent injuries and needless work disability are creating new service opportunities for physical therapists, occupational therapists, athletic trainers, and other occupational health professionals. This seminar develops examiner skills to perform the WorkAbility Systems method of worker fitness screening, functional job analysis, and functional capacity evaluation (FCE). Attendees will receive hands-on training and mentoring to facilitate preferred provider contracting with employers.

Certification Option: After completing the WorkAbility Certification Seminar, attendees are certified to begin performing WorkAbility Movement Screens, Worker Fitness Screens, Functional Capacity Evaluations, and Functional Job Analyses. Attendees that choose to become credentialed as a CWE (Certified WorkAbility Examiner) may request an application packet from WorkAbility Systems after gaining more experience with WorkAbility reporting applications.
