Associate in Insurance Accounting and Finance (AIAF)

Searching for AIAF training? Then you've come to the right place!

ABTrainingCenter.com offers AIAF training and certification courses for those individuals interested in earning the prestigious Associate in Insurance Accounting and Finance designation.

The Associate in Insurance Accounting and Finance (AIAF) designation is the undisputed professional credential for persons who have responsibilities in regard to insurance accounting/regulation.

The AIAF designation signifies that an individual working in this field has attained comprehensive knowledge of practices, principles, and procedures used to prepare insurer financial statements to comply with the requirements of the NAIC and other regulatory bodies. This knowledge benefits not only those who prepare these statements, but also those who use information contained in these statements for management or assessment of insurer performance.

Curriculum

Candidates must pass an examination for each of the following four required courses to earn the designation:

  • AIAF 111: Statutory Accounting for Property-Casualty Insurers
  • AIAF 112: Insurance Information Systems
  • CPCU 520: Insurance Operations, Regulation, and Statutory Accounting
  • CPCU 540 Finance for Risk Management and Insurance Professionals (Passing CPCU 8 or any prior version of CPCU 540 will satisfy this requirement)
Course Sequence

This program presumes certain knowledge. If you have limited or non-current exposure to GAAP, you should consider first taking CPCU 540 - Finance for Risk Management and Insurance Professionals before taking the AIAF courses. If you have limited experience in insurance principles, you should consider completing the Program in General Insurance before enrolling in the AIAF program and taking CPCU 520 as your first AIAF course.
