Insurance and Risk Management Program

Tyler Pellom

Insurance professional and Tennessee resident Tyler Pellom wanted to earn his Professional Risk Manager designation, and he found the perfect, career-specific program at the Scott College of Business. The Online Property and Casualty Certificate offers industry professionals like Tyler a flexible, 12-credit program, taught by expert faculty and designed to support students who will take industry credentialing exams.

The fully online Property and Casualty Insurance Certificate offers students career-specific training to enter or advance careers in insurance, risk management, and similar fields. The certificate is obtained through four courses to understand insurance products and risk management. Classes may waive exams needed for the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter designation in property-casualty insurance and risk management, administered by The Institutes.

Pellom has been in the insurance industry for six years and operates a branch of an established insurance agency/broker in East Tennessee, which he helped build from the ground up. Prior to this career move, he was an underwriter at a well-known national commercial insurance brokerage headquartered in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
