“Having the CISR designation shows my clients that I'm a professional who is dedicated to her industry," said Katie Shipp, CISR, CAWC, of Dodge Partners in Omaha. “With every CISR class that I take, I deepen my knowledge of coverages and how they are applied. As a bonus, CISR classes are an excellent way to obtain high caliber CE each year!"
To earn the CISR designation, you must attend class and pass exams for five of the nine courses within three years. To retain the designation, simply attend one of the courses (no exam required) each year after that.
If you attend all nine classes within three years, you can earn a distinguished "CISR Elite" designation. The CISR Elite designation shows that you've gone the extra mile for professional growth, demonstrates your commitment to serving clients and adds value to your agency.
