Associate in Regulation and Compliance (ARC™)

Gain a better understanding of the insurance regulatory environment and the effect regulation has on the business of insurance by earning the ARC designation.

What an ARC can do for you

It’s important to stay up-to-date on trends in the industry and in our economy because if we’re going to provide solutions to our customers who are depending upon us for good risk management advice then we have to know what solutions are out there. We have to be able to analyze problems and approach them sometimes in a new way to offer the right solutions. So by participating in continuing education, there is every opportunity to become relevant, remain relevant, and provide those solutions and recommendations that our clients are always seeking.
