MAIA's Designation Program for Insurance Agency Professionals

MAIA has developed a high-caliber educational curriculum for serious insurance agency professionals seeking to pursue a premier designation: Accredited Insurance Lines Professional (AILP).  AILP courses are appropriate for Agency Producers, Account Managers, CSRs, Underwriters, Adjusters, or any insurance agency employee who wants to build a solid base of practical knowledge to facilitate their career performance and advancement.

AILP designations are available at three levels – the complete designation, which covers both Personal and Commercial Lines, and two monoline options:

  • AILP – Accredited Insurance Lines Professional [Complete]
  • AILP/PL – Accredited Insurance Lines Professional / Personal Lines only
  • AILP/CL – Accredited Insurance Lines Professional / Commercial Lines only

Participants should have at least two years’ experience in the field of insurance and have completed beginners’ insurance courses in the fundamental topics (or have a producer license).

Benefits of AILP Training

  • Employees: Enhance your knowledge, confidence, and work performance while at the same time strengthening your career prospects.
  • Employers: Gain skilled and proficient insurance personnel who retain and attract clients through their capable daily interactions and communications. Errors and omissions may be reduced due to more knowledgeable and skilled employees.
  • Clients and Business Partners: Enjoy professional business relationships and peace of mind through contact with knowledgeable professionals.

Course Requirements

The AILP curriculum includes both Fundamental* and Core** Courses. The complete designation (AILP) requires successful completion of all Fundamental PL and CL Courses AND all Core PL and CL Courses. A monoline designation (AILP/PL or AILP/CL) requires successful completion of all Fundamental and Core Courses in the desired line. Certain coursework completed for other designations or certifications may count toward your AILP designation.
