As an insurance agent, you know that your clients rely on you for some of the most important life decisions they make. You study the industry, follow the latest news and keep abreast of the latest rules and regulations. However, if you want to be your best as an agent and give a boost to your credibility, attaining a professional designation could make sense.
Learn more about these designations and the benefits they can provide and decide if it may be the next step in professional development for you.
The CIC (Certified Insurance Counselor) is a designation that is given only to those agents, brokers and agency owners who have industry experience and have taken extensive coursework in many areas of insurance. Attaining this designation is difficult and only a small percentage of insurance professionals ever do this. Often times a professional designation enables you to provide more services to your clients and earn more money.
The CISR (Certified Insurance Service Representative) designation is a nationally recognized program that offers practical, hands-on study of the insurance industry and how to interact with clients. This designation is recognized as an important credential that can make it easier to obtain employment and clients. Achieving the best possible success as an agent is easier if you have access to help from industry experts.
