A vocational assessment provides information about an individual’s skills, abilities and interests, and identifies possible career paths the individual could pursue.  Our vocational assessments (Residual Employability Assessments) evaluate an individual’s pre- and post-injury vocational potential and residual earning capacity.  At Vocational Consulting Group, an assessment is usually conducted for individuals who have been injured and may need to consider a change in occupation.
