This qualification reflects job roles requiring well developed skills and a broad knowledge base in a wide variety of contexts within the personal injury management sector. It may involve supervision or leadership and guidance with some limited responsibility for others. Individuals in these roles apply theoretical and technical knowledge and skills to work autonomously and exercise judgment in completing routine and nonroutine activities. The qualification allows for specialisation in claims management, return to work, underwriting and medical indemnity.
This Course Covers
The program modules incorporate an introduction to the industry, case management liability, compensation benefits, public liability, CTP, injury management and return to work and analysis of relevant legislation.
We look at best practice injury management and return to work methodology and put these to practice with realistic examples and activities. The workshops/simulation/case studies enable students to learn and develop practical skills and knowledge.
Who Should Do This Qualification?
This cornerstone qualification is for those already in the industry who are wanting to sharpen their skills and further advance a career in the Workers Compensation, Case Management, Return to Work, Compulsory Third Party, and Personal Injury Management sectors.
There are no entry requirements for this qualification, however, participants are expected to demonstrate some experience within the sector and will be required to demonstrate appropriate levels of language, literacy and numeracy skills.
Participants have 12 months to complete all course work, however the timeframe of completion will vary from learner to learner depending on a number of variables including previous experience, skills and knowledge, and computer access.

Recognition of Prior Learning
Recognition of Prior Learning is for those who hold relevant qualifications, have completed relevant training courses and or have current sufficient industry experience. This would generally be suitable for candidates with at least a year’s experience in a personal injury management role.
The Australian Qualifications Framework defines RPL as:
Recognition of prior learning is an assessment process that involves assessment of an individual’s relevant prior learning (including formal, informal and non-formal learning) to determine the credit outcomes of an individual application for credit.
The process will involve an initial assessment of your eligibility for the RPL pathway. This might include:
A discussion over the phone or face-to-face regarding your current role, experience, knowledge and skills
Review of evidence/documents such as your resume and/or other qualifications or training.
Language, literacy and numeracy testing (if required).
Once your suitability for RPL has been assessed you will be required to complete an RPL kit and provide evidence that can help demonstrate the knowledge and skills required by the qualification. Once you have submitted your portfolio of evidence, your RPL assessor will more than likely need to contact you to discuss how you have applied your skills and knowledge in the workplace.
If you are undertaking the course online or in-house training, you will be required to submit the assessment tasks to your assessor or via the online learning platform. To achieve the FNS30215 Certificate III in Personal Injury Management learners will need to be found competent in 13 required units of competency, including 7 core units and 6 elective units.
If you are following the RPL pathway, once the RPL kit is completed and submitted with required, sufficient evidence, a Procare Group assessor will assess the submission and send the learner the corresponding feedback.
