Workers’ Compensation Origins and Overview

This program offers comprehensive training in foundation principles required to become a certified California WC Claims Adjuster and provides the required 120 classroom hours. Presented at a practical desk level, this curriculum includes learning tools such as case studies and soft skills along with technical information.  Components of the CPWC will also help fulfill certification requirements for California WC Medical Review or Medical Only adjusters.

Module 13 – Ethical Issues

In this 13th module, we look at the important but infrequently discussed issues of ethics in the Workers Compensation field.  This module will help you understand the standards of action by which you the claims adjuster, as well as insurer and claim administrators have to meet. We will look at the relationship and potential conflicts between the employer and their insurers and their claim administrators and, practically, how you as the adjuster can work for the common good of the parties in the system. This module, along with the following module on fraud, provides a basis of understanding and analysis for the actions for the participants of the Workers Compensation system.
