The Certified Insurance Consumer Service Representative (CICSR®) designation is designed for both regulators and industry, building on an educational commitment for insurance consumer/customer service and market regulation. An insurance professional who has been awarded a CICSR® designation has at least two years of full time experience with an insurance regulatory agency (includes regulatory contractors) or in the insurance industry.
Like the AIE® and CIE® designations, individuals who have earned the CICSR® designation must take part in the Society’s program of continuing education, known as the National IRES Continuing Education (NICE) Program.
An applicant for a CICSR® designation must have two years of full time experience with an insurance regulatory agency (includes regulatory contractors), or in the insurance industry. The applicant is required to have earned one of the ACS designations offered by LOMA or The Institutes, and then must pass four optional courses from a list of approved courses. A list of approved courses can be found in the CICSR® application.
