LOMA Professional Designations: Fellow, Life Management Institute (FLMI) and Associate, Life Management Institute (ALMI)

The Fellow, Life Management Institute (FLMI) program is a 10-course professional designation program that provides an industry-specific business education in the context of the life insurance and annuity industry. Established in 1932, the FLMI program is the world’s largest university-level education program in insurance and financial services.

Level I: Provides need-to-know information about insurance products and operations so employees quickly gain confidence, serve the customer effectively, and contribute to company success

ALMI: Provides job-relevant knowledge about the core insurance functions and strengthens business and financial acumen

FLMI: Teaches advanced insurance and financial concepts to build a deeper understanding of the insurance business

All courses leading to the ALMI are available in two formats – as a Highly Interactive Online course with integrated modularized exams, or as a Course Portal with a proctored end-of-course exam I*Star (Individually Scheduled Test and Results).

The upper level FLMI courses are only available in the Course Portal format with a proctored end-of-course exam I*Star (Individually Scheduled Test and Results).

The five-course ALMI program consists of:

  • LOMA 280 or LOMA 281

  • LOMA 301 or LOMA 302

In general, these courses also cover quantitative and financial concepts in greater depth. LOMA recommends a course progression that begins with Level I followed by the ALMI level before enrolling in courses in the FLMI level.
