Trusted Risk Advisor Certification

Take your credibility to the next level!

The Trusted Risk Advisor™ Certification Program from Beyond Insurance gives agents and brokers an enterprise risk management skill-set through a logical, disciplined, and results-oriented framework. While participating agents and brokers may enter the program with a proven track record of success, the TRA empowers them to sharpen arrows in their quiver, confirm that they have a "growth mindset". and consider additional tools and tactics to significantly improve performance.
  • Immersive, cohort-based microlearning modules facilitated by subject experts
  • Collaborate with peers, experts, and coaches in an online environment
  • Earn the Trusted Risk Advisor™ designation in four months-no tests or annual update
And all of this is at a discounted rate, courtesy of your PIA membership. The Trusted Risk Advisor™ Certification is comprised of four online courses, which range from 30-45 minutes per day.
