NetVU AMS360 Certified Account Manager Designation (NcAM-AMS360)

NetVU is pleased to announce the next phase of our NcAM certification program, the NetVU Certified Account Manager. Starting in December, 2016, this program was made available as a self-paced, on-demand course of study in a virtual environment.

How does an NcAM make a difference in your agency?
As an owner or manager, you will soon realize the return on your investment. Certified Account Managers are recognized as experts in their field. The program is an intense immersion into AMS360 and Vertafore Agency Platform’s client service functions, as well as reporting and system settings. Graduates of this program have an expertise in the design and implementation of the system features that will assist your agency to full utilization.  This program includes Vertafore Agency Platform (VAP) features.  Access to a training database powered by VAP will be granted to students whose agency has not yet implemented Platform.

The certification is designed for Account Managers, CSRs and others who have been using the client service features of AMS360 for a minimum of two years.

The NcAM – AMS360 is a three year certification. All certificate holders must recertify every three years. 

Benefits of NcAM include: Access to a private, NcAM only community on NCOM. Members of this Community will serve as mentors and advisors to each other and have access to reference material and Best Practice Guides. Certified members will also be given special consideration when contacting Vertafore Support.
