Accredited Professional in Risk and Insurance (APRI) The Council, in partnership with The Institutes and the University of Georgia, has created a new industry designation designed specifically for commercial insurance brokerage – the Accredited Professional in Risk and Insurance (APRI℠). The APRI can be earned after fulfilling a series of requirements, including completion of The Council’s nine-month Insurance Professional School, which is the only school that accelerates the learning of top talent at brokerage firms, while allowing students to work fulltime and apply their skills on the job. Professionals who achieve this designation will have:
- The skills needed to handle the challenges and responsibilities of their job
- Enhanced credibility with clients, peers, and carriers
- Enhanced confidence which can help a firm retain good talent
As our client base becomes more and more sophisticated, our brokers must be able to differentiate themselves as true experts in our industry.
Those achieving the APRI will be considered to have a greater level of knowledge and specialization.
