TRA (Trusted Risk Advisor) Program

What is TRA?

Goodbye agent or broker... Hello Trusted Risk Advisor!
The Trusted Risk Advisor Certification is reserved for agents and brokers who wish to take their game to the next reap the rewards that only enhanced credibility, trust and perception can bring.
A symbol of professional excellence in consultative and diagnostic sales and enterprise risk management, the Trusted Risk Advisor (TRA) is reserved for agents & brokers who wish to advance their ability to deliver an enterprise risk management (ERM) method through a logical, disciplined and results oriented framework. While participating agents and brokers may enter the program with a proven track record of success, the TRA empowers them to sharpen arrows in their quiver, confirm that they have a "growth mindset", and consider additional tools and tactics to significantly improve performance.
