AUSTIN, TX (January 7, 2016) – The National Alliance announced today that the Certified Insurance Service Representative Program (CISR) is celebrating the 30th Anniversary of its founding.
Inspired Career Growth for Professionals in the Insurance and Risk Management Industry
In 1986, a group of dedicated CICs in Kansas founded the Society of Certified Insurance Service Representatives (CISR). For more than a year, the CISR Program was conducted in Kansas, Missouri and Michigan only. One year later, the dream of a national program was on its way to becoming a reality when the Society of Certified Insurance Counselors in Austin, Texas, assumed responsibility for the CISR Program. One state after another adopted the CISR Program, and by 1996 CISR was a national program.
Today, CISRs are truly the face of insurance and risk management for their clients, representing access to prompt and effective customer service. Expansions to the program, including the CISR Elite distinction for those who complete all nine courses, have made CISR a global community, with more than 27,800 designated CISRs and approximately 1,500 courses conducted worldwide each year. The Program is available in class and online, and in Spanish in the classroom only. The program can be conducted at a company or agency on an in-house basis and tailored specifically to local needs.
For all insurance professionals who consider service their personal responsibility, CISR courses are a popular resource for practical insurance knowledge, stressing the understanding and analysis of risks and exposures. All employees of agencies, insurance companies, and insurance-related businesses benefit from CISR courses. The one-day courses can be steppingstones for CIC institutes and CRM courses, charting a path for future success and career advancement.
