Education and training
Rehabilitation can take the form of general education in an upper secondary school or a folk high school, if such education is a necessary precursor to vocational training. Basic vocational education can help you train for an occupation that is suitable for you, taking into account any health issues that may restrict your choice of occupations. By means of retraining or further vocational training, you can acquire a new occupation that helps you to minimize the impact of any health limitations you may have.
You will have to secure admission to a training programme yourself. You can apply for rehabilitation from Kela once you have been admitted to a training programme and you have acquired a medical certificate indicating your need for rehabilitation and the suitability of the training. You must file your claim with Kela before you can enter the training programme but need not wait for Kela's decision.
During participation in the training, you can be compensated for necessary expenses related to training and travel. You can also be paid a Rehabilitation Allowance.
