Injury Compensation Program Administrator Credentialing Program
DCPAS developed the Department of Defense Injury Compensation Program Administrator (DOD ICPA) Credentialing Program. DCPAS also manages the program. The DOD ICPA Credentialing Program is intended for Federal employees in the Injury Compensation Specialty. The Program focuses on interpreting and applying statutes, regulations, and policies governing Injury Compensation for Federal employees.
ICPAs earn “credentials” through completion of the two-tier DOD ICPA Credentialing Program. The overall program consists of two examination levels. The employee must attend the two (2) resident courses offered by DCPAS and complete the corresponding exam(s) in sequential order.
