AAI Designation Program
What Is AAI?
**Please note: these courses combine self-study with a classroom exam review. Because of this self-study requirement, no registrations will be accepted within one week of the class.
The Accredited Adviser in Insurance (AAI) designation program gives you an edge in the increasingly competitive insurance business. The AAI program is ideal for all agency staff, including producers, CSRs, account managers, and support staff. By completing the program, you will learn practical information you can use right away, including how to:
Increase your commissions
- Enhance your knowledge of policies and coverages
- Develop more effective sales techniques
- Learn the language of underwriters
- Improve agency workflows
- Serve your customers better
- Avoid E&O claims
Plus, you can earn CE credits for license renewal. AAI is the result of a joint effort of the Insurance Institute of America and IIABA. The AAI program is very cost-effective and flexible. Also, no CE credits are required to maintain your designation.

How Do I Earn the AAI Designation?
The AAI program is designed in three easy-to-manage seminars so you can minimize the amount of time you are away from the office. The three AAI seminars - AAI 81, AAI 82 and AAI 83 - are each broken down into three individual classes and an exam. You must attend all nine classes and pass all nine exams to receive the AAI designation. There is no time limit to earn the AAI designation.
A short exam is administered at the end of each AAI seminar. Students have one hour to complete a multiple-choice exam that covers the material taught in the seminar.
AAI candidates who have completed the IIA Program in General Insurance (INS) or the Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) program may earn the AAI designation by passing the AAI 82 and 83 exams. In addition, students who have credit for CPCU 2, 3, and 4 need to pass only the AAI 82 and 83 exams to earn the AAI designation.
There are no requirements to maintain the AAI designation.
