CPWC20 – PD Apportionment



Workers’ Compensation Origins and Overview

CPWC (Claims Practitioner in Workers’ Compensation) is a 24 unit certification program developed to meet the needs of emerging claims practitioners. 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 20 – Apportionment

In this 20th module, which is a correlate to the prior module on permanent disability, we will be looking at how permanent disability is modified where the injured worker has had a prior PD award or if part of the injured workers’ disability is due to conditions other than the industrial injury. Practically, this will provide a basis by which you can make sure you are properly paying permanent disability where there are multiple injuries or multiple causes of permanent disability.
