*There is an urgent demand for listed assessors in these areas.
- If you would like to undertake training but the dates do not suit you, we are eager to hear from you. Please contact us. We will endeavour to create extra sessions to accommodate your needs.
The successful completion of the Core and/or specialty module/s does not grant participants the ability to perform Permanent Impairment Assessment under the NSW legislation.
Subsequent to the successful completion of the training course, the prospective impairment assessor must apply to be listed on the SIRA workers compensation website. See Eligibility criteria.
Please bring a copy of the American Medical Association Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment 5th Edition (AMA5) as it will not be provided. You can buy a copy of the AMA5 or AMA4 Guides by clicking on the link below:
