AmCOMP awards certifications to insurance professionals who exhibit integrity and excellence in workers’ compensation through qualifying work experience and completion of a rigorous 11-week core curriculum followed by a final examination. Professionals who achieve the WCP® designation have proven their knowledge of the workers’ compensation field, including history, best practices, coverage areas, claims, risk management, pricing and employer liability insurance, among other areas of specialty. MEMIC employees attended the AmCOMP program through a partnership with the University of Southern Maine’s Risk Management Department.
