Delgado Community College and the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of Louisiana (IIABL) have teamed up to launch the Louisiana Insurance Academy – a 10-week program focused on kickstarting a career in insurance.

Upon successful completion of the program, students will attain two industry-based certifications – Accredited Customer Service Representative - Personal Lines (ACSR-P) and Accredited Customer Service Representative - Commercial Lines (ACSR-C). Job placement assistance with insurance agencies statewide will also be available for successful completers.
