Inspiriring Future Industry Talent
100% of Research Associate donations fund the continued development of the Certiﬁed Insurance Service Representatives (CISR) High School program, a career and technical education program that allows high school students from across the country to earn the valuable CISR designation during the final two years of high school.
The National Alliance Research Academy began its CISR High School Program to attract high school students into the risk management and insurance industry. This unique program is funded by Research Associates and cultivates a capable future workforce that inspires a new generation of professionals seeking meaningful insurance and risk management careers.
"Being a part of the Research Academy is an honor for Popular. I believe it's a way to "walk the talk" and become an active participant in the development of high quality educational materials and research. It also helps a new generation of students to develop in insurance & risk management earlier, with better tools than most of us probably had when we were developing our careers."
