The department's Workplace Rehabilitation Procedure states that every school or workplace should have an accredited Rehabilitation and Return to Work Coordinator attached to them.
In order to become an accredited Rehabilitation and Return to Work Coordinator an employee must complete an approved three-day training course. Accreditation lasts for 3 years. After this time an employee must complete a one-day re-certification course to maintain their accreditation.
Where a region or TAFE Institute can provide at least 10 employees, an in-house rehabilitation and return to work coordinator training course can be run. Alternately, accredited external training providers can be used to facilitate the three-day initial training course and the one-day recertification training. Where employees attend training provided by an external training provider, please fax a copy of their Rehabilitation and Return to Work Coordinator registration details to the Organisational Health Unit in Central office on (07) 3237 1664.
For more information on rehabilitation training for your region, please contact your Regional Rehabilitation Consultant.
