FLMI Testimonials

I started out in the insurance industry almost 10 years ago. I immediately fell in love with the industry and during orientation, our educator mentioned LOMA and the FLMI designation. From that point on, my course was set. I knew this was something that I wanted and needed to achieve to be successful in this industry. I wholeheartedly believe my FLMI designation has been instrumental to my success, resulting in promotions and edging out the competition. It shows your commitment to the work we do day in and day out. I don't believe I would be where I am at today without LOMA and my FLMI designation. Thank you LOMA!!!

Scott A. Ortiz, FLMI

The FLMI designation has meant a lot to me. It has given me a much better understanding of the industry. I am able to discuss industry-related topics intelligently and to develop well-informed opinions. My designation has caused potential employers to comment on my knowledge and dedication. This has given me an edge over other potential candidates. I am grateful for the education that I obtained from earning my FLMI designation, and am proud to be one of the 100,000 FLMI industry professionals.

Debbie McCants, FLMI, FFSI, PCS, AIAA, AIRC, ARA, Lincoln Financial Group

I was hired by a large insurance company as a registered nurse because of my extensive cardiac background, familiarity of EKG interpretation and handling complex cardiac patients. I had absolutely NO CLUE about the Life insurance industry. Studying for and completing the LOMA exams taught me valuable insurance industry processes, law, financial services, risk management—the list goes on. I am so grateful that I had the access and opportunity to learn as much as I did through the LOMA program!
