Looking for a way to establish or build trust and to better serve your clients? Earning your professional credentials as a Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) or Certified Insurance Service Representative (CISR) is a great way to do both. Both CIC and CISR designations indicate your commitment to your career and to the industry in general. And they also indicate that you’re committed to your clients and to understanding and meeting their needs.
Both CIC and CISR designations let your clients know you have a higher level of competence and experience within the insurance industry, so they can feel confident turning to you with all their needs, from simple to complex. And from an agent’s point of view, earning a professional designation makes practical sense too: According to The National Alliance Research Academy’s publication Producer Profile, commercial lines producers with the CIC designation earn 30% more than those without the designation.
American Agents Alliance offers discounts on both CIC and CISR certification programs to its members.
