- To earn the complete AILP designation, when taking both PL and CL courses at the same time, all required coursework must be completed within six (6) years.
- To earn a monoline designation (either AILP/PL or AILP/CL), all required coursework must be completed within four (4) years.
- Once an AILP designation has been obtained, you can immediately use the designation.
- You may obtain one monoline designation first and then add on the other to reach the complete designation.
To retain the ability to utilize the designation, the designee must perform a yearly (calendar year) update which can include any multi-day, full-day, or 2 partial-day courses that total at least six (6) continuing education (CE) credits; that are intermediate to advanced in nature (i.e., programs that discuss policy issues, not those that just review policy coverages*); and offered through MAIA.
For AILP/CL designees, the renewal course must be in commercial lines. For AILP/PL designees, it must be in personal lines. If you have earned the complete AILP designation, your renewal course can be in either commercial or personal lines.
