NAIC Model Audit Rule Compliance Training Academy

Focuses on the skills need by insurance professionals working on NAIC MAR annual compliance programs.

Our approach with this training academy is to provide the relevant information and skills which professionals will need to fulfill the "Internal Control Life Cycle" using the "top-down, risk-based" approach.

We teach the background knowledge sources, provide advice on how to conduct risk assessments, discuss scoping, and review how to plan the assessment of an internal control framework. Risk management activities are the key process to determine the requirements of a NAIC MAR program. The MAR program deliverables should lead to management's opining on the status of the internal control framework in reference to an insurance commissioner's reporting requirements.

We have created detailed workshop materials based on our experiances with the creation and validation of internal controls for the annual compliance with MAR. Each attendee will go home with a set of 51 documents that were used to create the academy.

This twenty-four hour (Three Day) CPE course provides you with the tradecraft skills to implement a compliance program that is consistent with NAIC Model Audit Rule compliance.

What You Get!!!:

We present the roadmap to having the skills and knowledge to work on NAIC MAR compliance.

Relax, learn and enjoy expert instructor presentations, group discussions, role-playing, audit and compliance exercises, white-board diagramming and simulations.
