Farm Certification program helps agents differentiate themselves remotely
For years, the On Your Side® Farm Certification program has helped agents increase agricultural awareness, enhance farm insurance product knowledge and examine the specific insurance needs of farms and ranches. Agencies that earn Farm Certification from Nationwide grow their farm book of business faster and differentiate themselves in the marketplace.
To continue meeting agents’ needs, the program shifted to online sessions. Since June 2020, more than 600 attendees from more than 500 agencies have taken advantage of the program’s remote training options and continued to enhance their agricultural expertise. In total, more than 2,000 agencies are currently Farm Certified by Nationwide.
The On Your Side Farm Certification continues to be available in person, virtually and on demand to ensure that agents can continue supporting farmers, ranchers and agribusiness owners in managing risk.
