Welcome to the NAIC’s Professional Designation Program! Designed to provide state insurance regulators at all staff levels with an opportunity for professional growth through completion of specific educational requirements, the NAIC-sponsored professional designation will recognize your expertise in insurance regulation. Three levels of designations are available: Associate Professional in Insurance Regulation (APIR), Professional in Insurance Regulation (PIR), and Senior Professional in Insurance Regulation (SPIR). Download the Policies and Procedures to learn more.
“Over the last couple of years the NAIC Insurance Regulator Professional Designation Program has emerged as a preeminent career development program regulatory leaders turn to when seeking to education themselves or their staffs. What started as a small program with little more than a handful of adventurous participants has grown into a major resource for regulators that has produced hundreds of designees. This is an exciting time to be the Chair of the NAIC Designation Advisory Board.
I encourage regulators to get involved, and join their colleagues from across the country in acquiring important skills needed to meet the demands of regulating the insurance marketplace. Whether you want to get new staff up-to-speed quickly, prepare staff for accreditation reviews, cross train staff to better leverage internal resources, or develop succession plans for your department’s future, the NAIC Designation Program should be part of your strategic plans.”
