DALLAS—The Management Liability Insurance Specialist (MLISTM) program has been approved by the board of the Nevada Insurance Education Foundation (NIEF) for Jack Barriage Memorial Awards. These awards, which honor the long time Executive Director of the Nevada Independent Insurance Agents Association, reward Nevadans who successfully complete approved insurance industry designation and certification programs. Completion of the MLIS program will earn a $350 Jack Barriage Memorial Award. To apply for the award, citizens of the state of Nevada must simply provide a copy of their MLIS certificate to the NIEF.

“The MLIS program is being received with a great deal of enthusiasm,” said IRMI president Jack P. Gibson, CPCU, “and we genuinely appreciate this la vote of confidence. It is fitting that recipients of the certification will be given an award named for a past NIIA executive director since MLIS was designed specifically to give agents and brokers the confidence, competence, and credibility to effectively sell directors and officers, employment practices, and fiduciary liability insurance.”

With an introductory rate of $69 per course, the MLIS program is quite affordable, and, for $15 more per course, insurance CE credit is also available in Nevada and most other states. This allows agents and brokers to leverage a nominal CE investment into both a certification and state CE credit. The self-paced courses and their final exams may be taken from any computer with Internet access via the state-of-the-art WebCE delivery platform.
