Designations Overview

By completing AEI’s programs, students earn designations and awards that are widely recognized in the industry as a mark of professional achievement.

Specialist Designations are awarded upon completion of any AEI claims law program. Associate Designations are awarded upon completion of the Legal Principles program and any other AEI claims law program. For example, by completing the Liability program, a student earns the Casualty Claim Law Specialist designation. By completing the Legal Principles program and the Liability program, a student earns the Casualty Claim Law Associate designation. Other combinations produce other designations.

The ultimate designation a claims professional can earn is the SCLA (Senior Claim Law Associate). The SCLA is achieved by completing the Legal Principles program and three of the other five AEI programs: Liability, Property, Workers’ Compensation, Automobile Claims and Coverage, and Claims Fraud Investigation and Defense.

A student who, after earning the SCLA, goes on to complete a fifth program earns the SCLA Silver Award and completing a sixth program, earns the SCLA Gold Award.  Click here for more information.

These designations and awards provide students with well deserved recognition for having met the requirements of one or more of AEI’s comprehensive claims law programs. Furthermore, by earning an AEI designation, a student becomes eligible to join the Society of Claim Law Associates, an organization dedicated to claims education and professionalism.
