IEA Announces 2019 Student of the Year
IEA has announced its 2019 student of the year. Our congratulations go to Crystal Arellano of AmTrust Financial who
has been awarded a $500 Amazon Gift Certificate in recognition of her outstanding commitment to professional development
and continuing education.
Crystal is a long time learner. She earned both her WCCA and WCCP through IEA. Recently she completed the Certified
Professional in Disability Management (CPDM) designation and is in advanced progress through the Certified Professional in
Fraud Identification (CPFI) program. Her dedication is demonstrated by her ambition to advance through two rigorous
designation programs almost simultaneously while also earning excellent grades along the way.
Obtaining my CPDM certification has helped me develop additional skills as a Claims Supervisor and within the workers’
compensation industry. Further, working towards my CPFI certification, has enabled me to better understand fraud,
how to prevent fraud, and what steps to take once fraud is discovered. The classes at IEA have helped me obtain the skills
I need to be successful within my career and further progress towards my goals.
