The Level 2 courses:

  • Teach advanced concepts in generating successful retirement outcomes and the application of retirement industry knowledge to marketing, business acquisition, administration/operations, service, and other functions that support the business
  • Provide learners with job-relevant knowledge about retirement financial solutions and the critical activities of the retirement financial services business

Learners who complete the six required courses will earn the ASRI designation. The ASRI is the second level in the Fellow, Secure Retirement Institute (FSRI) designation program.

ASRI Testimonials

The program is very informative! I understand retirement challenges better after completing the courses. I gained a better understanding of how we do things in our company and can suggest ways on how we can improve. It makes it easier for me to explain our plans and products.

This type of information is very important to understand when working in the life insurance industry. I can confidently explain to customers where our life insurance products fit into our overall retirement plan. It has piqued my curiosity to learn more about products.
