Akur8 unveils global program for insurance pricing advanced practices

InsurTech firm Akur8 has launched the Akur8 academy, a global training, development and upskilling program for insurance pricing advanced practices.

According to Akur8, the program is open to actuaries and pricing experts that are willing to benefit from the company’s expertise and build or grow their mastery of Akur8’s pricing platform.

The first initiative of the academy will be a gamified digital credential certification program that will allow users to test their skills and share their knowledge of the Akur8 solution with their professional network. Whether or not users are already experts in Akur8’s risk, demand or rate modules, the company has the right badge/certificate for them, including a 3-step program delivering ‘Essentials’, ‘Advanced’ and ‘Expert’ certifications.

Akur8 highlighted that digital credentials provide individuals with verified digital badges backed by metadata that detail the skills mastered to earn the credential.

Upon successful completion of a short quiz, clients will receive the respective credentials, which can be then shared on social media platforms or embedded in email signatures or added to LinkedIn profiles as professional credentials.

Akur8 CEO and co-founder Samuel Falmagne said, “Akur8 is setting the new standard for insurance pricing. We are realizing this vision through our pricing platform. But we want to go further and use our expertise and voice in the insurance pricing market to contribute to building the pricing skills of tomorrow. That is why we are launching the Akur8 Academy.”

Akur8 CCO Brune de Linares added, “By sharing professional credentials digitally on social media, our clients will be able to showcase their knowledge of the Akur8 solution to their network. Our new digital credential program will not only help us turn our customers into advocates, but also offer them training opportunities that give them a real edge in their domain.”
