The training involves completing The Core (Stream 1) module and at least one elective (Stream 1) module. Modules in Stream 1 are for medical practitioners who have not previously completed modules.
Note: Medical practitioners that are new to the course and seek accreditation for the first time must sit the Core (Stream 1) module before they sit the Specialty (Stream 1) module

Each training module includes the following:
After booking a module you will be re-directed to our online Learning Management system where you will be able to access the pre-training material which we advise you to read carefully. Pre-training material includes the relevant chapter of the AMA4 Guides along with ad-hoc documents developed for each module. For more information on how to navigate our Learning Management System click here.
Note: A hard copy of the AMA4 Guides will be provided to all medical professionals that are new to the course at the Core (Stream 1) module.
Each module includes a compulsory face-to-face training session facilitated by experienced Impairment Assessors. The aim of the face-to-face session is to discuss Impairment Assessment techniques, review case studies and answer your questions. This is also a good time to engage with the WorkSafe and TAC representatives attending the session.
You will be required to complete and upload a competency based assessment to show us you have mastered the relevant knowledge relating to Impairment Assessment.
The assessment documents will be made available to you on our Learning Management System the day after the facetoface session.
Note: Completion of the assessment is a mandatory requirement. The module will not be considered completed until the assessment is returned and marked satisfactory by the facilitator.
After the assessment is scored satisfactory, you follow the steps to download your certificate of completion for the relevant module.
For more information about the assessment process visit out Policy page. Other useful information can be located in the FAQ page.
The process is similar to the one described above but returning the assessment is not a compulsory requirement.
As Stream 2 modules do not link to accreditation, you will receive a certificate of completion regardless of whether you return the assessment or not. That said, we encourage you to complete and return the assessment in order to gain feedback from our facilitators.
Note: Attendance at the facetoface training session remains mandatory.
