The AFIS certification is the industry’s only professional credential for agents serving the farm and agribusiness communities. As of this past fall, only 1,500 people have earned the AFIS certification and another 1,400 are in the process of completing its requirements.
Greg began his course of study in 2011. By the end of 2013, he had completed 48 hours of classes and passed all three exams.
He decided to pursue the AFIS designation in order to better serve the Allison Insurance Group’s current and future Agribusiness and Farm accounts. We wanted our customers to be assured that our agents are fully trained in all aspects of writing and servicing these accounts. This industry segment has a secure future and the Allison Insurance Group wants to support it.
When asked how this designation will help him better service his customers, Greg replied, “It provides an ongoing and very specialized focus on Agribusiness & Farms via some of the industry’s most effective underwriters and agents. We constantly review coverages and exposures unique to the Farm community in order to better serve Farmers and Agribusiness operations.
Congratulations, Greg, we are proud of your accomplishment.
