What's Covered by the Course?
Day 1 will cover key parts of the law, rules and department policy and will introduce wage calculation. Day 2 will delve deeply into specific calculation of Time Loss, Loss of Earning Power, and Permanent Partial Disability.
Certification Testing Process
During the Department's live test, each tester has a computer terminal with links to key references such as the RCW, the WAC, and the Department’s Claim Adjudication Guidelines. We suggest you familiarize yourself with these on-line resources prior to class.
Testers will be provided with the new SIF-5A form to use as a guide during testing.
Certification Course Changed to Mirror Testing
We have made some changes in our course to mirror the way the Department is now testing. During class, attendees will access key references via online links. We will provide hard copies of the calculation forms (including the new SIF-5A form).
All attendees will need to bring a laptop to class.
Instructors for Day One of the class (September 12th– Law and Calculations) will be Kevin Kincade of Eberle Vivian and Erinn Hyre of Sedgwick.
Instructor for Day Two of the class (September 13th– Calculation) will be Amela Tankic of Sedgwick.
Students will be required to complete some calculation homework assignments and will be provided with helpful pre-reading and tips prior to the class. The homework will be emailed to you prior to class with instructions regarding faxing/scanning your answers to the WSIA office. This will allow the instructor time to review the homework in advance of class.
Homework is due by 9:00am on September 8th.
If you register after the homework and practice problems are emailed, you will receive them with your registration confirmation, upon registration.
Those registered to take the Claims Administrator Exam on September 14th will have first priority to take this course!
Other specifics will be provided with confirmation of registration to be emailed to all registrants prior to class.
