About Us

Our Background

The National Registry began in 2003 as The National Registry of Workers’ Compensation Specialists. The National Registry of Cyber Liability Specialists was started in 2018. We felt that although there were several industry related professional designations, some of which taught about workers’ compensation or briefly discussed cyber liability, very few if any, focused entirely on the subject and none of them were geared towards a general audience as opposed to specifically insurance producers.

Over the years we have found that many of our graduates are in fields other than insurance, including human resources, corporate risk management, medical and legal fields.  We are proud of the fact that many organizations, both large and small will choose to use the Registered Workers’ Compensation Specialist® (RWCS™) and Registered Cyber Liability Specialist (RCLS™) certifications as their training program of choice for their company for employees who deal with worker’s compensation, risk management, and cyber liability issues.

Porter has more than 30 years experience in the insurance industry.  He received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of the State of New York and Master of Science in Financial Services from the American College.

“I am appreciative to be part of The National Registry of Workers’ Compensation Specialists, in providing a quality workers’ compensation training program.

  Many years ago, when I first entered the insurance industry, I decided that if this was to be my chosen profession I would want to be the best that I was capable of becoming. That being said, I have made continuing education a lifetime pursuit, earning multiple professional designations on the road to competency.

To me, obtaining the RWCS™ workers’ compensation certification sets someone apart as a committed individual within the field of workers’ compensation.”
