Certified Insurance Wholesaler

Overview

A person who wishes to obtain the CIW designation must complete 64 education hours and submit a project designed to demonstrate the individual’s knowledge and expertise in the wholesale insurance field. AAMGA University’s Accreditation committee will approve the project idea and the Accreditation Committee will evaluate the completed work for acceptability.

How Do I Qualify?

Of the 64 required hours, a minimum of 40 hours must be earned from University workshop courses. These may be Stand Alone, University courses offered in conjunction with AAMGA meetings, ex. University East, University West, or Underwriting Boot Camp, Instruction hours for AAMGA University (ex. Taught a class at University East, University West, or Boot Camp), Sponsored University courses delivered on-site or in a local venue, or On-Line AAMGA University courses. A maximum of 24 hours may be earned through completion of approved Self-Study courses, designations, or prior educational activities.
