Varsity Tutors can connect you to a number of effective options to help you study effectively for your AU-M exams. If you're looking for a private instructor to help you cover topics in depth while you receive a targeted, close level of attention, we can find you a highly knowledgeable AU-M prep tutor to study alongside. If you'd rather participate in AU-M prep training, we can find you a class with other underwriters so that you can learn new test-taking strategies while covering all of the topics you need to study. Both options ensure that you're taking these important exams seriously.
To earn an Associate in Commercial Underwriting —Management designation, there are a number of required courses you'll need to complete. The specific courses you'll need to complete can vary based on the institution you're working through as you earn your designation. These courses can include AU 60 - Commercial Underwriting Principles; AU 61 - Underwriting Commercial Property; AU 62 - Underwriting Commercial Liability; and AU 67 - Strategic Underwriting Techniques. Each of these courses has its own exam. These exams can consist of 85 multiple-choice questions or more, and you'll typically have a time limit of up to 2 hours for each exam.
What are the advantages of the AU-M prep training options available to me?
An AU-M prep class can either involve studying in a one-on-one setting with your personal instructor or in a collaborative setting with other underwriters who are also studying for their AU-M exams. Private tutoring with the AU-M prep tutor we can find for you is effective because you can focus on key topics that are giving you trouble. This means you won't have to sit through lectures on topics you've already mastered, such as communication and negotiation. That being said, classes with other students can be a useful way to exchange and share new ideas and insights into topics like reinsurance.
If you choose the AU-M prep tutoring we can connect you with, you'll have the freedom to learn at your own pace. Since there are no other students present in these sessions, you can slow things down to really make sure you're gaining a firm grasp on concepts like pricing the insurance product. Another benefit of allowing us to find you an AU-M prep tutor is the fact that they can use methods based on your learning style. For example, you can cover topics like evaluating occupancy more effectively through verbal, visual, or hands-on teaching methods depending on how you process information most effectively.
Regardless of whether you choose to study through a prep course or private tutoring, these educational resources generally provide the same end results: Allowing you to approach your AU-M exams with a sense of confidence. In both of these study settings, your instructor can give you the chance to complete practice AU-M exams in environments that are very similar to those you'll experience on the real test date. After you've completed your practice exams, your instructor can go over your scores and point out which areas seem to be giving you the most trouble. You can then address these issues and ensure that you're approaching your real AU-M exams feeling self-assured in your abilities.
