Now that we have moved into the new 2020 Rate Year, which runs from 7/1/2020 – 6/30/2021, just a reminder that if you had a claim in the “Green Year” (7/1/2018 – 9/30/2019) and you are in a Group or Group Retrospective program, a representative from your company needs to complete 2 hours of BWC approved safety training by 6/30/2021.

Due to the COVID pandemic, all in-person BWC classroom classes have been canceled for the remaining 2020 calendar year (more information about the 2021 calendar year coming soon.) Online courses and webinars are unaffected and available for enrollment. Additionally, starting in October 2020, BWC will offer approximately 15 classes in a virtual format. These virtual classes will be either half-day lengths or full-day lengths. For further information about the BWC’s virtual classes, log into your account at the BWC’s Learning Center at: BWC Learning Center Login. Click on VIRTUAL TRAINING at the top of the page for a full list of virtual classes. Each participant will need a good internet connection, a computer with headset, and be willing to participate in a virtual training. A webcam is optional. The cost of the BWC virtual training is free.

Another option for employers is to complete Online E-Courses via the BWC’s Learning Center. Your online training MUST total 2 hours in order for your 2020 policy year Group/Group Retro Safety Training requirement to be met. For a complete list of BWC Learning Center Online E-Courses, go to: BWC Learning Center Login

NOTE: Certificates of Completion should either be emailed to or faxed to (614) 495-5200 so that CareWorks Comp may track the fulfillment of this requirement.
