Exams & Certification/Recertification

Earning and Maintaining Your CAWC Designation

The Certified Authority on Workers’ Compensation (CAWC) designation is earned by completing our three-day, 19-hour program and passing daily course exams. Because the world of workers’ compensation insurance is always changing with the introduction of new laws, protocols and more, recertification and renewal is also required periodically.

Course Exam

A proctored exam is administered each day and requires a score of 70% or higher to pass the course.

CAWC Renewal Criteria – External Agents

To maintain the CAWC designation, continuing education is required. Over a two-year period, CAWC recipients must complete three hours of ethics along with seven additional hours pertaining to workers’ compensation for a total of 10 credit hours every two years.

A credit hour is 50 minutes. A half credit hour may be applied for half-hour sessions.

Classes that are eligible for renewal credit are:

  • Any CE class or webinar offered by our organization
  • CIC classes that cover workers’ compensation issues
  • CPCU classes that cover workers’ compensation issues
  • Workers’ compensation seminars put on by professional agent associations
