Designation Programs and Opportunities
Creating, developing, and delivering
practical continuing education programs for everyone involved in the
insurance and risk management industries is the challenge and purpose of
The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research. In
addition to CIC, CISR and Dynamics classes offered by Insurors, The
National Alliance also offers the CRM designation.
Introductory Courses, Programs in
General Insurance, courses leading to the AAI and ARM designations, and
the CPCU training program are available through the American Institute
for CPCU and Insurance Institute of America.
Just as the property-casualty and risk
management community responds to the needs of an ever-evolving
marketplace, the American Institute for CPCU responds to your changing
professional development needs. The American Institute introduced a new
CPCU curriculum in 2002 to better meet the needs of today's risk
management and insurance professionals while maintaining the integrity
of the industry's most respected professional designation.
The AAI designation program gives you a
competitive edge in the increasingly competitive insurance business. You
will be able to increase your commissions, improve your insurance
knowledge, learn how to avoid E&O claims, and earn continuing
education (CE) credits for your license renewal all at the same time.
AAI is more cost-effective and more flexible than other comparable
programs. Further, no continuing education credits are required to
maintain your designation. AAI is the result of a joint effort of the
Insurance Institute of America (IIA) and the Independent Insurance
Agents of America (IIABA).
By earning the ARM or the ARM-P
designation, you will greatly enhance your understanding of the risk
management process, from analysis to implementation and monitoring. Both
programs provide fundamental concepts. The information you learn is
practical, and you will be able to apply it immediately to your daily
risk management responsibilities. You will learn about risk retention
and transfer and about some of the latest in advanced risk financing
