Participants select the training program that best fits their needs from among the following:

Prevention Link programs are designed to empower compensation advocates with an in-depth understanding of the workers compensation system and further encourage their activism in support of affected workers and their families.
Participants are also encouraged to attend and actively participate in evening sessions focused on current issues and will include various authorities on selected health, safety and compensation topics.
