Return to work coordination training

You must have the training, skills and experience to perform the role and functions of a return to work coordinator for an employer.

We have free online training available to help return to work coordinators meet this requirement.

There are currently modules available to help to you learn about:

  • the NSW workers compensation system
  • what employers need to know
  • understanding the role of the insurer
  • working with the support team
  • return to work program
  • tailoring a return to work program
  • recover at work planning
  • developing a recover at work plan.

Future modules will be released over the next few months which will provide further information on understanding the claims process, worker entitlements and what to do when things don’t go to plan.

Who should complete the training?

This training is for people wanting to work as a return to work coordinator in NSW or existing return to work coordinators wanting to stay up-to-date with their requirements.

It can also be completed by others who would like to find out more about workers compensation and supporting recovery at work.
