School may be out for summer, but CLM’s Claims College is right around the corner. Taking place Sept. 7-10, 2022 in Baltimore, Claims College can help you meet your professional goals while helping you establish great connections and relationships within your cohort. Here’s what you need to know about the event.

The Breakdown

Claims College is comprised of 11 schools, of which seven require the completion of three levels in order to earn the Certified Claims Professional (CCP) designation. Level one for these schools is conducted virtually, then levels two and three are completed in-person. The three-level schools include:

•    School of Casualty Claims

•    School of Construction

•    School of Cyber Claims

•    School of Professional Lines

•    School of Property Claims

•    School of Transportation

•    School of Workers Compensation

Claims College also offers learning programs that require one year of work. Upon completion, students receive a certificate of completion. One-level schools include:

•    School of Claims Mediation

•    School of Extra-Contractual Claims

•    School of Leadership

•    School of Litigation Management

Don’t Take Our Word for It

Unsure of what Claims College can do for your career? We asked several recent graduates from the School of Casualty Claims to explain why they sought out the CCP designation and what they found most rewarding. Here are some of their responses:

•     “I sought out the School of Casualty Claims because it can be difficult to build professional contacts for this specialty work,” said Marie Nolan, McLarens. “It was really interesting to see how different people in very different roles—adjusters, insurers, investigators—process the work, organize their thoughts, and work through the case studies. I got a much better appreciation for the other roles involved in casualty work.”

•    “The School of Casualty Claims was recommended by my coworkers and supervisors,” said Dylan Slade, AXIS Insurance. “Performing a live claim review with my peers was the most rewarding part.”

•    “I wanted to become more knowledgeable in [casualty] claims handling, gain different perspectives, and develop ways of thinking outside the box while showing my dedication to the profession,” said Shandra Hickman, Crum & Forster. “I feel better equipped to handle casualty claims from start to finish now. The little bit of extra confidence I gained is very rewarding, and I also met a lot of really great claims professionals from all over.”

•    “I wanted to expand my knowledge further and seek expertise outside my organization,” said Lorena Escobar, Amica Mutual. “Interacting with fellow litigation professionals and educating myself outside of my normal scope of claims was the most rewarding part.”
