The 31-year-old suffered a dislocated shoulder in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on September 10 when he fell awkwardly after claiming a high ball in the Turf Moor fixture.
Heaton subsequently went under the knife and has been recovering since then, with Nick Pope expertly filling in for the Clarets' first-choice custodian.
Burnley confirmed Heaton's return with a video on their YouTube channel, aptly titled: "Training: Tom Heaton Returns!".
Heaton has made 178 appearances for Burnley and has kept 61 clean sheets for the team.
