Get CRIS Credit

If you recently attended a conference, seminar, or webinar that pertains to construction risk management and insurance, and you would like to obtain CRIS reaccreditation credit, follow these steps.

  1. Attend webinars, seminars, conferences, or other educational events that have been approved for CRIS reaccreditation. You must attend the events after receiving your CRIS certification.

  2. The sponsor will provide you with a Certificate of Completion containing a unique and nontransferable Completer Code number.

  3. If a single event provided the 6 hours needed for reaccreditation, go to the Voucher/Promotion/Completer Code Redemption page in the CRIS Learning Center to report your attendance and pay the reaccreditation fee. You will need the Completer Code number from the Certificate of Completion you received when you do so. The fee for this reaccreditation option pays the costs of administering this part of the CRIS program.

  4. If you are attending multiple events to satisfy the 6-hour requirement, follow the procedures below.

    • Once you have completed the required 6 hours for reaccreditation, please submit a CRIS Reaccreditation Certification Form and evidence of completion certificates to [email protected] or fax to Continuing Education at (972) 371–5120.

    • Once IRMI has received and verified course attendance, an email will be sent providing

      • a link to the website to report attendance and

      • a Voucher Code, which is used to certify completion of the required 6 hours.

If you have any questions or issues with this process, please call (800) 827–4242 and ask to speak with a CE coordinator.

Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the reaccreditation process and pay the reaccreditation fee. When asked to sign in, it is important that you enter the same ID and password used when taking the CRIS certification courses. If you do not remember your login information, you may contact WebCE at (877) 488–9313 during normal business hours.
