The WWCP: A Comprehensive, Goal-Oriented Curriculum


The Washington Workers Compensation Professional Designation was developed by WSIA and the Industrial Insurance University Board of Regents in order to provide a quality designation program for worker's compensation professionals.

Now, for 2019-2020 and beyond, the WWCP has been redesigned as a comprehensive, goal-oriented curriculum to comply with the requirements of WAC 296-15-360 for those individuals seeking or required to hold the state claims handler certification.

The WWCP Course Catalog (2019-2020 Program Year)

The WWCP constitutes 72 hours of instruction culminating in an examination which tests mastery of the concepts covered in the curriculum and upon successful completion of which the WWCP is conferred.

All courses will be held live in-person at the WSIA offices in Olympia with live webcast and recorded, on-demand options. Click each course for detailed course and registration information.

Courses may be taken in pursuit of the WWCP designation or individually for continuing education purposes.
