The American Institute for CPCU and the Insurance Institute of America have signed a partnership agreement with the Society of Registered Professional Adjusters to administer the examinations that lead to the Society’s Registered Professional Adjuster designation.

The multiple-choice exams, which were developed by the society, now are available online and at employer on-site testing centers. Examinations will be given in five areas: automobile liability, property, workers’ compensation, general liability, and a generalist track. In addition, RPA candidates must pass the Institutes’ Ethics and Claims Professionalism exam.

The society also plans to develop a Master Professional Adjuster designation for various specialty types of business and to offer a Career Achievement Report, a record of an individual adjuster’s achievements.

For more information about the RPA designation and examinations, contact Susan K. Sunny, executive director, P.O. Box 3810, Napa, Calif. 94558, 800-949-5272.
