AMA Training delivers the NSW Permanent Impairment Assessment Training Program

using the NSW workers compensation guidelines for the evaluation of permanent impairment 4th edition.

The methodology used in this Guidelines is largely based on the American Medical Association’s Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, 5th Edition (AMA5)

Permanent Impairment, 5th Edition (AMA5) will not be supplied by AMA Training.
