PIA of Louisiana is rolling out a new designation! The Certified Professional Insurance Agent (CPIA) is first-of-its-kind, hands-on, how-to training. To earn the designation, candidates are required to participate in a series of three one-day Insurance Success Seminars. These seminars are designed to enhance the ability of producers, sales support staff and company personnel to efficiently create and distribute effective insurance programs. Throughout each section of the seminars tips for preventing Errors & Omissions are highlighted and discussed. Participants leave each class with ideas that will produce sales results immediately.
  • No Test Required
  • Sales Based ideas that count for CE credit
  • E&O highlights in every class
  • 7 Hours of CE Credit
The three Insurance Success Seminars are:

CPIA 1 — Position for Success
Course Objectives: During this program, participants are encouraged to focus on internal/external factors affecting the development of effective business plans. Factors discussed include a review of the state of the insurance marketplace; analysis of competitive pressures; necessary insurance carrier underwriting criteria; and consumer expectations and understanding.

CPIA 2 — Implement for Success
Course Objectives: During this session, participants will be provided specific tools for analyzing consumer needs; will learn to utilize risk identification techniques to gather pertinent information; will develop skills necessary to assimilate information gathered into a customized protection program; and will participate in exercises designed to promote effective delivery of proven solutions.

CPIA 3 — Sustain Success
Course Objectives: This program focuses on fulfilling the implied promises contained in the insuring agreement. Students will review methods of providing evidence of insurance coverage; will discuss policies and procedures for controlling E&O, including policy review and delivery, endorsements, claims processing, and handling of client complaints. This course includes a review of Professional Expectations, the Law of Agency, and Legal and Ethical Standards.

PIA of Louisiana is the only provider in the state to offer this groundbreaking designation. This is perfect for producers and CSRs working in your agency!
