Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the announcement from the soon to be launched WorkCompCollege.com that it has established a Board of Trustees to act in an advisory capacity to the company’s founders and help establish a broad and deep curriculum for the training of professionals in the workers’ comp space.
In addition to technical skills, WorkCompCollege is expected to emphasize training in critical “soft skills” of whole person recovery management via a virtual, on-demand technology platform. Core curriculum will include courses in the claims, stakeholders, legal, regulatory/legislative, clinical, Return to Work, and humanities departments, and graduates of the national program will receive a Workers’ Recovery Professional, or WRP, certification. The new endeavor is is the result of a partnership between Robert Wilson, who will serve as president, Mark Pew, who will serve as provost, and Donald A. Abrams, who will function as CFO. Members of the Board of Trustees were selected based on a diverse criterion and have expertise and experience within their respective positions in the industry.
