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.

Friday September 29 - Sunday October 1, 2017

  • Part 1 - Worker Fitness Screening & Functional Job Analysis
    This part covers worker fitness screening and functional job analysis skills needed to create a strong foundation for injury and work disability prevention. Lab sessions emphasize how to perform a worker fitness screen and functional job analysis from start to finish. Laboratory sessions will emphasize hands-on practice performing the NEW WorkAbility Movement Screen, job-specific tests, and reporting with ExamFIT and WorkerFIT software.

  • Part 2 - Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) & Progress Reporting
    This part further develops examination and reporting skills needed to apply the WorkAbility Systems method of functional capacity evaluation for different FCE exam applications that relate to disability benefit claims, fitness-for-duty determination, or job accommodation requests.

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. The CWE application process includes a peer review of functional capacity evaluation and functional job analysis reports to demonstrate competency with WorkAbility Examiner skills.
