The Alabama Property and Casualty Adjusters Association (APCAA) has endorsed the Alabama Captive Association’s (ACA) internship program.
The ACA’s “Risky Business” internship programme gives college students experience in multiple risk management environments during an 18-week internship. The first selection of interns received their invitations to participate in January 2020, with additional invitations set to be sent out during the Summer and Spring semesters.
The programme is offered in partnership with Arsenal Insurance Management, American Millennium Insurance Company (AMIC) and the Alabama Department of Insurance (AL DOI).
Selected students spend five weeks in-office with Arsenal, five weeks with AMIC, and five weeks with AL DOI, allowing interns to experience the multifaceted nature of the insurance industry.
The first week of the internship is an orientation to the program, the second to last week is spent at the students’ entity of choice, and during the final week of the program, students will prepare a presentation on the topic of their choice focused on the knowledge they gained about the industry during the internship.”
Justin Law, managing director of the ACA internship programme, bemoaned the lack of insurance-focused programmes in the State of Alabama. “The Risky Business internship programme gives us a platform to increase engagement with educational institutions to educate students about the opportunities in the risk management and insurance industry,” he said.
The APCAA develops the workforce of existing property and casualty insurance claims adjusters by developing and offering quality continuing insurance and legal education in Alabama. It believes ACA’s newly developed internship programme will promote a new generation of insurance professionals.
