AMCOMP is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to professional and educational excellence in the field of workers’ compensation. AMCOMP was established due to the lack of a professional society that dedicated itself to educating, recognizing, and certifying individuals in the highly-specialized field of workers’ compensation. To fill this void, AMCOMP pulled together leading industry professionals and developed a certified course to educate and train professionals in workers’ compensation—the Workers’ Compensation Professional (WCP®) program. Further, the AMCOMP Board of Directors acts as an insurance information resource for issues that arise and affect the field of workers compensation. About the WCP®

Those who complete the coursework will have a better understanding of how the various pieces of the workers’ compensation industry (e.g., claims, risk management, pricing, rate making) all work together to make the greater whole. The program highlights the following topics: History of Workers Compensation, Statutory provisions, Benefits, Claims Administration, Cost Containment Strategies, Methods for Determining Rates, Exclusive Remedy Challenges, Federal Legislation, and the Availability of Insurance.
