Workers’ compensation certifications, like the Registered Workers’ Compensation Specialist (RWCS) designation, often come in two forms. Some are state specific courses and others are universal in nature. There are advantages to both.
Workers’ compensation is of course, a state program. Each state has their own set of laws and regulations governing the employers who do business there. However there many common policy definitions and coverages that apply to most of the United States. Additionally some laws, like the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, impact all 50 states.
The National Registry of Workers’ Compensation Specialists chose to create a designation that would provide comprehensive training and continuing education for everyone who deals with workers’ compensation- from safety and risk managers to insurance professionals and human resource personnel.
