The Institutes Offers Free AIC Micro-course Deal
I usually check out The Institutes’ website at least every six months. Why? I like to see what designations are being offered presently. I came across its free AIC Micro-course deal to let potential designation acquirers have a chance to sample The Insitutes’ AIC (Associate in Claims) test without having to initially go out of pocket to try the courses.
Go here to sign up for the sample Free AIC Micro-course and test. The courses are all online unlike the picture. Many insurance carriers fully reimburse course costs for the AIC once you pass the exam.
Loss Run Reviews Show Lack of Liability Adjusting Backgrounds
When we do loss run reviews, one of the big issues we usually discover is that workers’ comp subrogation was not pursued in some of the claims where a potential recovery exists in the file. I found the ARM (Associates in Risk Management) and AIC both cover this subject very well.
Workers’ Comp adjusters became specialists, which was an understandable switch from all lines (Auto, Property, Liability, Workers Comp) to one line of insurance. There is no negative effect on a Workers’ Comp claim file if an adjuster does not have an all-lines background except for one – subrogation.
J&L often sees a referral to an organization that specializes in subrogation. No follow-up occurs and the file closes out with the subrogation still pending.
Sometimes, all an adjuster needs to do is send a subrogation letter to the responsible third party’s insurance carrier.
One of The Institutes’ – what you will learn – points is:
- How to effectively evaluate auto, liability, property, or workers’ compensation claims based on your focus
What Does Subrogation Have to Do With The Free AIC Micro-course?
Not one of the courses is named “subrogation”. If you cover auto and liability (see above red highlighting), then subro will be much easier to pursue as you will have training in those areas. The two courses in the AIC program that cover this are:
301 Expanding Your Claims Perspective
AIC 301 will give you the skills you need to negotiate fair settlements for customers while ensuring good faith claims handling. From learning how to apply the insurance contract to resolving claims disputes, this course will help you get better at your job and give you the skills you need to be ready for your next opportunity.
303 Successfully Evaluating Liability Claims
AIC 303 will help you learn how to successfully obtain evidence, interview experts, and interact with claimants. From better understanding the liability claims environment to evaluating bodily injury claims, this course will help you get better at your job and give you the skills you need to be ready for your next opportunity.
