Foundations of Workers' Compensation Program

The Foundations of Workers' Compensation Program


What is it?

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. The entire program runs from June through September and content is shared virtually through self-paced learning modules, live webinars, and discussions. There are several assignments and activities, and the program concludes with a final test.

Who is it for?

Participants may include jurisdictional members 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.
