How do I obtain training?
There are a few different ways to obtain training. Further information can be found on the Training page.
- If there are a significant number of people who require training from your rehab facility, your facility may wish to run its own workshop conducted by a Master Trainer.
- AROC conducts workshops that are open to anyone interested in being trained, as long as they are clinically trained (medical, nursing, allied health). Workshops are run at least once a year in major centres around Australia.
- If there is a Facility Trainer at your facility you may request training from them. AROC plays no part in this training, except to send resources and exams when needed.
What happens if I fail the exam?
AROC will give you a further chance to pass the exam if you fail. Note, if you are a new user of the FIM™ or WeeFIM® instrument you are required to attend a training workshop before attempting the exam. It is also wise to study the manual before attempting the exam.
How long should I expect to wait for my exam result and certificate?
If you do the credentialing exam online you will receive your results immediately, and certificates are sent. Paper exam results and certificates are emailed to facility coordinators.
Who should I contact if I have a clinical question regarding the FIM™instrument?
How often is a credentialed scorer required to recredential?
A credentialed scorer is required to recredential every two years. The date when your credentialing expires is shown on your credentialing certificate. Additionally, AROC regularly sends recredentialing reports to every facility highlighting the credentialing status of all staff.
