WORKERS’ COMPENSATION

The world of Workers’ Compensation is both complex and dynamic. Whether an organization has one, or one hundred employees, in-depth knowledge and skills are vital in its response to the State of California requirements in relation to workers’ compensation.   For decades, IEA has been leader in providing professional development training in workers’ compensation, pioneering the leading edge qualifications in the industry.

WCCA Certificate and WCCP Designation
The California Workers Compensation Claims Administration (WCCA) and Workers Compensation Claims Professional (WCCP) programs are the gold standard professional credentials in the industry. Some 8,000 California WC professionals hold the WCCA, while almost 3,000 have gone on to earn the WCCP designation. These series also meet most of the criteria established by the California DOI for claims adjuster pre-certification and continuing education allowing you to earn CE hours.

IEA partners with The Institutes in offering these prestigious programs nationwide. Text books and standardized exam must be purchased separately through the Institutes for candidates who wish to progress toward earning the credentials.

CPWC Certificate
IEA is proud to introduce its newest certificate program, the Claims Practitioner in Workers’ Compensation. The CPWC is a 24-module program designed specifically to meet the 120 hour criteria established by the California DOI. The focus is  on the practical knowledge and skills needed to perform the roles of an Indemnity Workers’ Compensation Adjuster, a Medical Only Adjuster and a Medical Bill Review Adjuster for the State of California.

 

With our team of skilled and experienced instructors, IEA continues to combine specific learning objectives with real-world insights enabling you to hit-the-ground running in your day-to-day job as well as your career path.
