Why do I have to have my Supervisor order my Examiner Certificate?
Under the new Examiner Certification rules it is your employer’s responsibility to determine your recertification eligibility and recertify you when appropriate. Although WCCA has developed some CEC tools to assist your employer in this process, we do not have the authority to recertify any examiner. Therefore the Examiner Certificate must be ordered through your employer and is only valid when it has been signed by your employer.
Pursuant to current Oregon law, only insurance companies, self-insured employers or TPAs can certify or recertify a claims examiner. If you are not currently working for an insurance company or self-insured employer, you should continue to maintain proof of your CEC hours. Ideally you should keep separate folders for each recertification period to ensure you have adequate hours for each recertification period.
