How to select a transitional work developer

All transitional work developers must be Ohio licensed vocational or medical case managers, physical or occupational therapists and hold an active BWC transitional work developer accreditation. We've provided a list of BWC-accredited transitional work developers. The list includes their contact information including their name, business email address and phone number and counties they are willing to do business. Interview several developers and select one that best meets your company's needs.

How to become a BWC-accredited developer

Ohio licensed vocational or medical case managers, and physical and occupational therapist wanting to obtain BWC's transitional work developer accreditation must participate in a full-day developer orientation class at the Ohio Center for Occupational Safety and Health, 13430 Yarmouth Drive, Pickerington, OH  43147. Classes are scheduled periodically throughout the year. Contact the BWC transitional work department for scheduled dates and times. 
All transitional work developers must be a vocational or medical case manager with one of the following certifications/accreditations or state licensure:

  • American Board of Vocational Experts (ABVE).
  • Occupational Health Nursing (COHN(S)).
  • Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC).
  • Certified Disability Management Specialist (CDMS).
  • Certified Vocational Evaluator (CVE).
  • Certified Rehabilitation Nurse (CRRN).
  • Certified Case Manager (CCM).
  • Physical or occupational therapist license from Ohio Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Athletic Trainer Board.

Once the accreditation process is complete, we'll include your name on the BWC-accredited developer list. This accredited transitional work developers list will be available to employers, managed care organizations, third-party administrators and available here online. The list includes developer names, counties, business email addresses and phone numbers.

Developer reaccreditation

BWC transitional work developer accreditation expires two years from the date BWC issues the accreditation number. A developer certificate clearly illustrates the issuance date. A lapse in a developer's accreditation will prevent an employer from receiving reimbursement for a transitional work plan.

To obtain reaccreditation BWC offers a two-hour, computer-based webinar class developers may attend from their home or office.
