Agribusiness and Farm Insurance Specialist (AFIS®) Certification

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.

The core curriculum for the AFIS program consists of five parts―AFIS 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5―that can be taken in any order. To earn the certification, participants must successfully complete the online core courses, the course study at the Emmett J Vaughan Agribusiness Conference for each of the AFIS parts, or a combination of online and Conference courses. After successful completion of all five exams, participants will earn the AFIS certification. Participants have 5 years to take all five parts of the AFIS certification.

Once the certification is earned, annually designees must complete 6 hours of continuing education by attending a CE seminar, webinar, farm conference, or online course to maintain their certification.
