Workers' Comp Risk Advisor Training

There has never been a more important and exciting time to be a broker. The insurance industry is changing rapidly, and new and emerging risks are putting businesses in jeopardy. Today's brokers must possess the risk assessment and management skills necessary to help businesses identify and address risks which could have an adverse effect on their sustainability and profitability.

Why Lead with Workers' Compensation?

Many employers and agents believe WorkComp is WorkComp, and that cannot be farther from the truth. Workers' Compensation is a complex subject which is too often treated like a commodity. Treating workers' compensation this way results in unprecedented challenges, such as uncovered claims, denied group health benefits, and claim costs that spiral out of control.

Brokers who gain specialized knowledge can help employers reduce the number, cost, and duration of employee injuries, become a source of business value to prospects, and close more business.

Earn Your Professional Workers' Compensation Advisor Designation (PWCA)

Participants are eligible to earn Oceanus Partners' PWCA designation. This designation will demonstrate to your prospects and clients your commitment to helping them identify and manage workers' compensation related risks and threats.

This Workshop is Ideal For:

  • Producers looking to gain specialized knowledge to help employers reduce the number, cost, and duration of employee injuries.
  • Producers wanting to become a source of business value to their prospects and, as a result, close more business.
  • New and seasoned producers hoping to acquire or refine their skillsets to disrupt the flawed buying process many businesses follow.

Participants Will Learn How To:

  • Escape the commodity bid and quote and "just get me the lowest price" insurance buying process.
  • Differentiate from the competition with knowledge and processes known by few agents and fewer employers.
  • Identify and address risks to employers that would likely cause significant adverse financial events.
  • Identify and recover premium overcharges arising from premium audits and experience modification factors.
  • Create and execute multi-year action plans that build barriers to competition.
  • Go upstream to larger, more complex, and higher revenue accounts.
