The CSRM Program – Entering the Second Decade of Premier School Risk Management

The Certified School Risk Managers (CSRM) Program is a career-building, five-part designation and CE program for risk management specialists working with schools, colleges, and universities. Insurance agency, brokerage, and company personnel who work with schools and school risk managers are also encouraged to attend. The CSRM faculty is represented by the field's top practitioners and leaders. Five intensive courses guide participants through the risk management process, emphasizing practice over theory. Each one-day course includes an optional multiple-choice examination and includes state CE and CPE credit.

The CSRM courses are reasonably priced and locally convenient. They are available in the classroom or through CSRM Online. And, arrangements can be made to offer CSRM courses in-house. Just contact us at 800-633-2165 for more information.

The CSRM Designation - A Professional Statement

To earn the prestigious CSRM designation, you must complete all five courses and pass the exams within three years. An optional exam is given at the end of each classroom course. The exam is mandatory for CSRM Online. Then, to keep the designation, you must update each year with additional continuing education courses offered by The National Alliance.

If your organization is sending a number of people to outside training, you can achieve considerable savings by bringing training in-house. Volume discounts are also available for online courses! For details, send us a message through the Contact Us link.

Success Stories

Of all the opportunities that exist for risk management education, I consistently find the CSRM courses offer the best value. First, the curriculum is topical and always up-to-date. Second, they pack an extraordinary breadth and depth of information into an easily accessible one-day course. Third, the price and time commitment are unmatched in terms of value for money (and time is money!). Whether one takes the online courses or the one-day class they will gain a deeper understanding of the science of risk management and its application to real world scholastic issues.”
