Event Details

The IAIABC Foundations of Workers' Compensation Program is developed for those charged with the administration of their state, provincial, or jurisdictional workers' compensation system. The Foundations Program offers a comprehensive look at workers' compensation administrative and regulatory topics at a theoretical and practical level, examining how differences play out across systems.

Program content is shared through self-paced learning modules, webinars, and discussion sessions. Participants who complete the entire Program, finish all assignments, and pass the final test receive the Foundations digital credential.

Participants may include those with management responsibility within workers' compensation commissions or boards, departments of labor or workforce development, divisions of workers' compensation, or departments of insurance. Many participants in the Foundations Program are new to workers' compensation.

Standard Registration Rate for Jurisdictional Members is $699
