University of Florida’s (UF) Certificate Program in Forensic Vocational Rehabilitation is available through UF’s College of Public Health & Health Professions, and is intended for working professionals that currently have a master’s degree in Rehabilitative Counseling or working professionals that are already certified rehabilitative counselors. This program’s distance learning format was created with these working professionals in mind. These professionals may not have the freedom to pursue a traditional certificate program on-campus due to family, location, or work commitments. Through this program, students may be able to further their education and enrich their careers without sacrificing their work and family life.
The topics in the program courses include the following:
client forensic interview
impact of disability in legal cases
vocational skills analysis
ethical considerations for the forensic expert
formulating opinions for testimony
Once the coursework for this certificate is successfully completed, graduates may possess the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed as a Forensic Vocational Rehabilitator.
Students must have a Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling (or equivalent); or are in the final stages of their educational program.
