Our Functional Capacity Evaluation Certification Course is designed for professionals who are looking to expand their knowledge and/or implement legally defensible functional capacity evaluations into their practice. Following the completion of this 3-day course you will be able to plan, administer, and perform evidence-based FCEs that meet and exceed industry reliability and validity levels. Upon course completion, you are certified to perform FCEs in their practice and can work towards level 2 certification as a Certified Functional Capacity Evaluator. You will receive hands on testing experience performing a kinesiophysical based FCE protocol with a full FCE being performed on day three of the course. The protocols and training are built around assessment tools that have been court tested with published reliability and validity studies. Following the completion of this course you will receive ongoing testing support as you grow and expand your FCE practice.
Our Functional Capacity Evaluation Software will be utilized during the course as a training tool but is not necessary to take this course. All students will be provided paper based FCE templates to complete their FCEs if they choose not to implement the software. The FCE software will greatly improve your productivity and efficiency in completing functional capacity evaluations.
Satisfactory course completion as an assessment of learned outcomes includes: • Participation in the full 3 days of training • Completion of a full FCE on day 3 of the course
