Here in the Education Department at Big I New York, we get a lot of questions about the value of pursuing ACSR and AAI designations. I've recorded a super short (1 minute) video message for you to explain why these courses are so important!
The Institute courses are a great way to go beyond your desk and gain a deeper understanding of coverages and agency operations. Find a course at our
Designations Page or give us a call at 800-962-7950. You can also email me at mbyrnes@BigINY.org or our Education Department at
If you've earned an ACSR, AAI or AINS designation after January 2018, CONGRATULATIONS! We'd love to hear about it and include it in our Education News.
