Work Comp Claims Consultant Certification (California)

Postby 50Cal20 on Wed Jul 13, 2016 7:01 pm

Just a quick note to advise brokers and agents that a new 3-day, 18 hour certification program will be available later this year certifying California workers' compensation claims consultants. The certification has four levels (bronze, silver, gold and platinum) based on past credentials, years of experience and other factors. That way a consultant with one year of experience and little education does not obtain the same credential as someone with 30 years experience and hundreds of hours of education. Opportunities in upgrade the credential with future education and experience will exist.

Claims administrators have expressed a tremendous need for this credential program since many consultants they deal with sometimes do not understand the basics of insurance law. The CA Dept of Insurance is being asked to sanction the program for continuing education credit for agents/brokers prior to it being offered. The program will be offered publicly throughout the state or privately at a agent's or broker's office so all their consultants can achieve accreditation together. Brochures with additional details will be available within a few months. To have a brochure sent to you please send an email to wccccredential@yahoo.com and ask to have a WCCC brochure emailed to you when available.

CA Workers' Compensation Consultants will now be certified.
