The AFIS certification is the foremost professional certification for specialists in the agricultural and farm insurance industry. Those who complete the program are entitled to display the AFIS certification to demonstrate their knowledge of agribusiness and farm insurance and risk management as well as their dedication to the agribusiness industry.
