ARM - Associate in Risk Management

The Associate in Risk Management designation requires the completion of three core courses. This program is recommended for persons who have been working in the risk management field and have some experience. The time required to complete the three Associate in Risk Management courses is typically 9 to 15 months.

Keir Educational Resources offers study media to enhance and streamline the study process for those professionals working toward insurance designations sponsored by the The American Institute for Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters (AICPCU) and the Insurance Institute of America (IIA). Keir’s ARM materials are appropriate for the self-study student or for those attending classes.

Keir can help enhance the knowledge and improve the confidence in passing these Associate in Risk Management exams.

  • Keir supplements give a clear and concise review of the textbook.
  • Our materials are NOT written by the textbook author, so they provide a second interpretation of the material.
  • The practice questions that Keir provides are very close to the national exam and in the same style as the national exam.
