Analyst Academy I and II

Analyst Academy I

Instructors present systematic techniques to identify and analyze potential fraud in your company’s claims data. Students process data to uncover patterns of possible fraud, create supporting visuals, and prepare reports needed to assist in developing investigational strategies, claims decisions, and, where applicable, referral to NICB or law enforcement.

The Analyst Academy I is a basic course for insurance fraud analysts with up to three years of experience. Supervisors responsible for insurance fraud analytical functions may also benefit from attending. Students must pass a pretest prior to registering (a score of 92 percent of higher is required to pass).


Analyst Academy II

The Analyst Academy II builds upon skills learned in the Analyst Academy I. This academy reviews analytical concepts, and applies the technology skills necessary for analysis. Topics include database creation, constructing queries, mapping data and link analysis. Students are guided through analysis projects to utilize the skills taught. The class is designed to enhance an analyst’s analytical skills. This class applies analytical theory to multiple “hands on” exercises. Prior completion of the Analyst Academy I is recommended.

  • Student will be provided with a computer for both classes, which will have all of the programs necessary for the class.
  • Registration is limited to 20 students; if full, students will be placed on a waiting list.
  • Academy attendance is restricted to the direct (not contracted) employees of member companies. Additionally, on a space available basis, government agencies and law enforcement are eligible to attend.

Upcoming Academies

The Analyst Academy I class is taking place April 17–21, 2017, at the NICB Headquarters. Online registration is available for members-only website users. View the training bulletin for more information.
