The awarding of the AAUI Agent Award this time is an event to choose the best agent not based on the acquisition of premiums while being an agent, but based on the activities of an agent who inspires many people who are the judges’ calculations.
The goal is to continue to develop the general insurance agency, because currently the number of general insurance agencies is still fairly low with the current data of a total of 34.453 general insurance agents, this number is very small compared to the number of agencies in life insurance that has reached 500 thousand agents. So, now the AAUI is working hard for the agency to be more developed.

This digital agent certification application has already been put into use in April 2018. With this application, AAUI targets an additional new agent of around 6.000 from the total target of 10.000 agents this year.
Executive Director of the Indonesian General Insurance Association (AAUI) Dody Achmad Sudiyar Dalimunthe said, e-certification is in accordance with Law Number 40 of 2014 concerning Insurance where the OJK authorizes the association to certify agents.
All this time AAUI has certified general insurance agents by holding face-to-face meetings in the form of agency workshops and agency examinations. This scheme requires participants to provide special time and place to take the agency exam.
Through e-certification, the implementation of the agent test can be carried out by the agent anywhere and anytime through the application on the smartphone. Thus, the presence of this application will make it easier for agents to take the agent certification exam.
The application also contains the material to be tested so that the agent can study independently before the exam. “If you pass, the agent’s certificate card will immediately come out in digital form,” he said. The AAU e-certification application can be used on Android and iOS-based smartphones. .
