AIC - Associate in Claims

Keir Educational Resources offers AIC study materials to enhance and streamline the study process. Keir can help enhance the knowledge and improve the confidence in passing these AIC insurance certification exams.

The Associate in Claims designation is sponsored by The American Institute for Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters (AICPCU) and the Insurance Institute of America (IIA). It is a study program designed for those involved with claims handling such as: a claims agent, broker, independent adjuster who is interested in having a deeper understanding of the insurance policy and to improve his or her claims handling skills. This is considered an intermediate level program; some previous knowledge of insurance and/or claims will be helpful.

  • Keir Supplements give a clear and concise review of the textbook.
  • Our AIC exam prep materials are not written by the textbook author, so they provide a second interpretation of the material.
  • The practice questions that Keir provides in the AIC exam prep are very close to the national exam and in the same style as the national exam.
  • Adding the Keir supplemental Associate in Claims materials to the study process can help cut study time in half.
