Management Liability Insurance Specialist (MLIS®)

The MLIS Certification Establishes Credibility and Dedication

The Management Liability Insurance Specialist (MLIS) continuing education (CE) program was developed by IRMI to make it much easier for insurance agents, brokers, underwriters, and in-house risk managers or insurance buyers to gain specialized expertise in the fundamentals of professional liability insurance and the more specific nuances of directors and officers liability, employment practices liability, and fiduciary liability exposures and insurance. The MLIS certification is for all professionals who sell, underwrite, or purchase these specialized lines often called "management liability" or "executive liability" insurance, hence the name of the program.

  • Agents and brokers will gain the competence, confidence, and credibility to sell more of these lucrative coverages.
  • Underwriters will gain valuable perspective to advise agents and brokers on how to position the need for coverage with their clients.
  • Risk managers or insurance buyers who obtain the certification will gain the knowledge to assure that the assets of their organizations and personal assets of the directors and officers are properly protected.

An insurance buyer/risk manager or underwriter who deals with an MLIS certification holder will know he or she is dealing with someone who is committed to staying abreast of this complex and constantly changing insurance specialty. Search the MLIS Broker Directory.

The MLIS Curriculum and the Continuing Education Requirement

The core curriculum is comprised of five intermediate-level insurance and risk management continuing education courses directly focused on the specific nuances of directors and officers liability, employment practices liability, and fiduciary liability exposures and insurance. Completing the core curriculum qualifies an individual to use the MLIS certification for 24 months. To maintain the certification, the MLIS certification-holder must complete only 3 hours of approved professional or management liability insurance continuing education credit during the initial 24 months and every 12 months thereafter. This requirement can be satisfied through just one additional online CE course or by attending approved seminars and conferences.
