The advantages of enrolling in a job retraining program include:

Learning for free.

Rhode Island is one of the few states that requires a workers’ compensation insurer to pay for your vocational evaluation as well as all aspects of the rehabilitation program.

Advice from a certified rehabilitation counselor.

You will work with a certified rehabilitation counselor throughout your program. Your counselor will not only assist you in submitting your retraining proposal and completing the program, but they can also offer insight on job markets and determine where your skills will be the most useful.

Protecting your benefits.

Your workers’ compensation benefits may not be terminated or reduced as long as you are actively participating in a job retraining program that was approved by the Workers’ Compensation Court.
