The Academy of Life Underwriting offers a series of examinations to the life insurance professional to develop their skills in life insurance risk assessment. Successful completion of the full exam series, together with a number of courses offered by the Academy's educational partners, leads a student to either the Fellow, Academy of Life Underwriting (FALU) designation or Medical Risk Assessment Professional (MRAP) designation.
Students may register for and write only one exam during an exam cycle. All examinations are written in English. Each examination consists of 100 multiple-choice questions, each with a value of 1 point. All questions are based upon material listed in the reading syllabus. For ALU Exam 301, questions are based on the reading syllabus and upon information which a professional underwriter might reasonably be expected to know. Please note: The MRAP program will be gradually phased out over the next 2 exam cycles. Both the MRAP-1 and MRAP-2 exams will be available for the April 2021 exam. MRAP-2 will be available for the April 2022 exam. After 2022, ALU will no longer offer the MRAP exam series.
2021 exams were administered on April 27, 2021. These exams were held virtually. Exam results are now available and were circulated via email and are available in your ALU profile. ALU is pleased to offer ALU Exam 101 again in October. The exam will be administered on October 19, 2021 and will be held virtually.
