How to use this course to improve your career or start a new career path?

In this course, the attendee will learn an easy-to use, practical assessment tool that meets the industry standards of OSHA – The US Occupational Safety and Health Association. With this you'll learn assessment strategies for structural deficits and underlying conditions you can use the very next day to start treating patients as a Remote Ergonomist!

In addition, you'll learn what is usually not tight along side this course - business set up! You'll learn branding concepts as well as how to use free or very inexpensive tools to set up your business.

Business and Career Examples:

  •  Some companies and facilities hire directly industrial ergonomists. So if you are not looking to start your own company, then YES this can help you separate yourself in the application and interview process for ergonomic full time positions.
     
  •  Besides having being a potential employee and starting a new career path, you can also start your own ergonomic business! 

    How does this work? If a big company or facility does not want to hire someone full time, they will want to instead hire a contractor to come in for a weekend or a week, once a year or quarterly. 
    You could be that person that would come into companies, factories, technology businesses and help re-design workstations, re-design work flows, and conduct injury prevention assessments and even perform treatments!
    Typical rates are $150 an hour or if booking for a day then $1000 a day. 

     
  •  PTA and COTA's looking to leave patient care but limited by their professional designation - you no longer are limited! Because you are doing "prevention" then this is not therapy and thus you are not limited by your degree. 

    Your degree will help you get hired as you can use your functional movement background to better conduct assessments and perform treatments but you can do this INDEPENDENTLY (unless treating workers compensation). 

     
  •  Side hustlers - whatever your professional designation, this is an opportunity to grow a business while working full time. You could conduct your evaluations over a weekend or remotely and grow from one company to many.

    The cost to create a remote injury prevention and ergonomics practice is nearly zero!
