Educating Today's and Tomorrow's Workers' Compensation Leaders
The IAIABC has concluded the third year of its Foundations of Workers’ Compensation Administration Program. The IAIABC Foundations Program provides participants from jurisdictional agencies with a comprehensive education in workers’ compensation policy and administration.
Through webinars, self-paced modules, and a face-to-face course, the Foundations Program participants examined workers’ compensation administrative and regulatory topics at both a theoretical and practical level, exploring how differences play out across jurisdictions. Courses studied a wide range of topics from medical management to data reporting. Participants also reflected on and discussed experiences and practices within their own jurisdiction through writing exercises and discussion sessions.
