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 California Workers Compensation Claims Professional (WCCP) programs of The Institutes are the gold standard professional credentials in the industry. Some 8,000 California workers’ compensation professionals have earned the WCCA certificate, while almost 3,000 have gone on to attain the WCCP designation. These programs meet most of the criteria established by the California Department of Insurance for workers’s compensation claims adjuster pre-certification and continuing education allowing you to earn CE hours.

IEA offers online classes nationwide for WCCA and WCCP courses. Candidates who wish to earn credentials must purchase the recommended study materials from The Institutes and and pass the exams administered by The Institutes.  For information on these and other programs developed by The Institutes, download a catalog here.
