NT workers compensation online training program

In 2018 NT WorkSafe launched the Northern Territory Workers Compensation Online Training Program.

This program is specifically focused on return to work legislation and was a joint project between the Personal Injury Education Foundation and NT WorkSafe. The project involved extensive collaboration with insurance company representatives and claims managers.

Completing this program will provide essential information about the Return to Work Act 1986, an understanding of the return to work process and claims management. For participants who have a particular learning objective, individual learning streams can be chosen.

This program is now available to all stakeholders in the Northern Territory such as:
