What is the University Associate Program?

Introduction
One of the primary goals of The National Alliance Research Academy is to introduce young professionals to the insurance and risk management industry. To assist in this effort, The Academy has worked diligently to pioneer new relationships with universities across America.

In a short span of time, The Academy has developed important relationships with universities offering coursework pertaining to the insurance and risk management industry. By working with these universities, The Academy helps develop insurance and risk management programs while also working to ensure their continued success. In addition to the development of insurance and risk management programs, The Academy also conducts cooperative research with higher education institutions to help educate and inform the insurance and risk management industry.

University Coursework
Currently, The Academy offers aspiring young professionals the opportunity to use approved university insurance and risk management coursework to obtain credit toward the distinguished Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) or Certified Risk Manager (CRM) designations.

Depending on the course, students whom successfully complete approved university coursework will receive credit for one part of either the CIC or CRM designation. Participating students are then given the opportunity to receive an additional part of the CIC or CRM by studying and using their knowledge to complete and pass a proctored exam. Upon passing the approved coursework and proctored exam, students will have achieved two parts of the corresponding designation.

At this point, participants will also obtain a uniquely different designation that The National Alliance has to offer. Depending on the coursework chosen, the participant will receive either the University Associate Certified Insurance Counselor (UACIC) or University Associate Certified Risk Manager (UACRM) designation. These two designations were created to give young professionals recognition for their hard work while also giving them a distinct advantage when entering the insurance and risk management workforce.
