Brown earns Associate in Insurance Designation

(HURON, SD, APRIL 6, 2022) American Trust Insurance (ATI) is proud to congratulate Bobbi Brown for receiving her Associate in Insurance AINS designation from The Institutes®. The achievement of this designation signifies that Brown has mastered insurance basics.

Brown joined ATI just under nine years ago on May 7, 2013, as Personal Lines Account Manager.

“Bobbi is committed to furthering her education to be the most knowledgeable and reputable account manager possible for the clients she services at ATI,” said Katie Scheuer, Director of Sales and Risk Placement. “Her list of designations is impressive, and we appreciate her drive for continued excellence and pursuit of knowledge.”

Brown recognizes the value of furthering her education and is looking forward to future opportunities.

“The AINS courses are a good foundation to build on and a great way to get CE credit!  Many of The Institutes® courses provide dual credit for other designations,” said Brown.  “I was able to take advantage of that benefit to eliminate one of the required courses.”

The AINS designation is a designed with three foundational objectives:

  • Build your understanding of the insurance industry.
  • Speak the language of insurance as you master industry terminology.
  • Learn the role of agencies and brokerages play as well as explore your role as an effective agent or broker.

To earn the AINS designation you must complete four courses and pass four exams.

The mission of ATI is to provide trusted local advice, superior protection and the best quality and value possible, and one of the ways we do this is by investing in education and opportunities for growth of our team.
