The Institutes have partnered with Professional Insurance Agents of Florida (PIA of Florida) to offer the Accredited Adviser in Insurance (AAI) and the Accredited Customer Service Representative (ACSR) designation programs to all professional insurance agents beginning January 2014.
After registering for either program, students will have access to The Institutes’ course materials, self-study aids and in-person course instruction to prepare for each exam.
