Your ARM™ instructor

Erike Young, MPPA, CSP, ARM-E

I am passionate about risk management and love to share that knowledge to help others in their professional development journey. I created this site to help remove the barriers that prevent people from obtaining their ARM™ designation. The most significant barriers being cost and and finding a class that fits your schedule.

Unlike other online courses that just recite the textbook, I provide context using real-life examples to help your understanding. Having trouble understanding a concept, just reach out to me and we can set-up a time to discuss over a phone or video call. Let me help you achieve your ARM designation.

In addition to teaching, Erike is also a leader in the risk management and safety community serving as Chair for the US Technical Advisory Group for ISO 31000 – Risk Management, Convener for ISO TC 262 Workgroup 8 for Terminology, and recognized as the ASSP Safety Professional of the Year in 2012.

Erike is a Board Certified Safety Professional (CSP) and has earned the Associate in Risk Management (ARM) designation and completed the Enterprise Risk Management Certificated (ARM-E). He earned his master’s in public policy and Administration (MPPA) from California State University, Sacramento and BA from the University of California, Davis.


Your CPCU® instructor

Ruquiayah Rosado, CPCU, CLU, AIC, API, AINS

I am passionate about helping insurance professionals invest in their future by helping them invest in themselves. CPCU® is not about memorization and passing a test. If you aim to truly learn the objectives and increase your industry knowledge you will have the ability to transform your understanding of a truly dynamic industry, increase your earning potential, provide better service to your organization and customers as well as make beneficial insurance choices that benefit you, your family, community and your future. 

I have worked in the insurance industry for over 16 years. I worked my way up through property and injury claims to a team manager. My love for teaching has led me to my current role as a risk management instructor at the Georgia State University.

I have a B.S. in Mathematics and have been teaching the CPCU® courses since 2012 as a Course Leader through The Institutes. I currently serve as Education Chair for the Atlanta Chapter of the CPCU Society and have for nine years.

What Students are saying about us

I couldn’t imagine having to study through an entire textbook- and even if I did I wouldn’t have been able to absorb as much information. The slides covered everything that was on the test! I wouldn’t choose any better way to prepare for the test. Again, thank you for your help and assistance in this journey of mine. Wouldn’t have been able to be successful if it wasn’t for your materials.

Thank you! Lilly M.

As a student obtaining my ARM and ERM designation, Erike is my instructor and is guiding my through the attainment of the designation, one test at a time. Erike has a wonderful rapport with our class and his ability to connect with each of us to help us learn is a true talent.  I recommend Erike to you without reservation.
