Benefits of Membership
AMCOMP's education program, certified Workers Compensation Professional ( WCP) was developed to help raise the professional standards in the field of workers compensation.
Each of us is able to detail the need to improve the industry in our own business histories, almost always concluding that a common body of knowledge and measurement would benefit all participants in the field: insurers, reinsurers, insureds, self-insureds, regulators, agents, brokers and most importantly, claimants.
The AMCOMP certification program is intended to develop a basic foundation of knowledge of the various aspects of the industry so that individuals who have completed the program will have a better understanding and appreciation of how the various pieces (e.g. claims, risk management, pricing, etc.) work together in order to make the greater whole.
