What is a transferable skills analysis?

Apex Rehab Management with its team of Vocational Experts can provide a Transferable Skills Analysis to determine earning capacity after injury, disability, or to assess economic loss caused by other factors. We provide a detailed Transferable Skills Analysis (TSA) report to determine whether an individual has earning capacity after an injury or disability.

What is a Transferable Skills Analysis?

  • Transferable skills are skills acquired from past training, education, and experience that can be used in various occupations.
  • The Transferable Skills Analysis is a rigorous methodology that utilizes Standard Classification of Occupations (SCO). The SCO assigns quantifiable measures which Vocational Experts refer to as Worker Trait Factors.
  • We utilize software such as the McCroskey program to scientifically match past skills with the occupations that are classified in the U.S Department of Labor, Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT).
  • Certified Rehabilitation Counselors (CRC) are the most qualified professionals to perform TSA’s.  An experienced Vocational Expert is often indispensable in persuading a jury or other adjudicator why the TSA is the best predictor of employability or lack of employability.
  • To determine if an individual has employability using transferable skills, the post-injury profile must be determined. We are very experienced in determining post-injury functional capacity for physical, mental, and cognitive capabilities.
  • The TSA is the most widely utilized tool used by Vocational Experts in assessing loss of earnings for the U.S. Federal Government, The Insurance Industry, and Personal Injury attorneys.
