Become a Certified Authority on Workers’ Compensation!

AF Group, with the support of Olivet College, has partnered to offer insurance professionals a unique designation focused on the core components of workers’ compensation: The Certified Authority on Workers’ Compensation (CAWC).


Program Overview

The CAWC program provides a robust, thought-provoking curriculum, practical exercises and market information specific to workers’ compensation. Our instructors apply adult learning principles to their methods of instruction, in-turn offering a different approach to insurance education. The 19-hour program consists of eight classes, including:


·         Day 1:   

o   Workers’ Compensation Fundamentals

o   Experience Rating & Modification

o   Claims

·         Day 2:

o   Loss Control

o   Return-to-Work

o   Alternative Workers’ Compensation Programs

·         Day 3:

o   United States Longshore & Harbor Workers (USL&H) Act

o   Classification Basics

o   Final Examination


Program Deliverables


·         Industry-recognized CAWC designation

·         Up to 17 hours of continuing education credits filed in the state of Michigan or up to 16 hours filed in the state of Indiana

·         Specialized learning experience, provided by an industry-leading workers’ compensation provider, AF Group

·         Networking opportunity for insurance professionals



Daily Schedule

The CAWC program starts at 8:00 a.m. each day and finishes at approximately 4:30 p.m. on the first two days. The last day will conclude at 2:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided on all three days.


Course Exam

A proctored final exam will be administered at the conclusion of the third day. The exam requires a score of 70% or higher to pass the course.



Participants with disabilities who believe they may need accommodations in the class, or for the exam, are encouraged to contact Joe Elliott (contact information below) as soon as possible to ensure that such accommodations are implemented in a timely fashion.


Certification & Recertification

The CAWC designation is awarded to those participants who achieve a passing grade on the final exam. The initial certification is valid for two years.


Continuing education is required to maintain the CAWC designation. Over a two-year period, the CAWC recipient must complete three hours of ethics classes and seven hours worth of commercially-focused classes of their choice. In total 10 credit hours are required every two years.



This quality educational experience is provided at the following affordable prices:


·         $899 – 2.5 day CAWC program price

·         $200 – Recertification fee (required every two years, in conjunction with CE)


Cancellation Policy

All payments must be received 10 days prior to the start of the class, or, the registration will be dropped.


If cancellations are made within four days of registration, a full refund will be given; otherwise, a $250 cancellation fee will apply.
