Insurance CE Credit

The Construction Risk and Insurance Specialist (CRIS®) continuing education (CE) program is a convenient way to obtain state insurance CE credit while gaining meaningful knowledge that will help you sell, service, or buy insurance for contractors. 

Insurance CE Credit in All 50 States!

The CRIS program gives insurance agents and brokers a unique opportunity to simultaneously obtain both mandatory state insurance continuing education (CE) credit and a certification attesting to their knowledge of the insurance needs of this important industry. And the cost for all five core courses is less than the admission fee to many continuing education seminars!

All five core CRIS courses, the fundamentals course, and most of the reaccreditation courses have been approved for CE credit in all 50 states. Other courses will be filed as they are introduced. The amount of insurance CE credit provided ranges between 4 and 12 hours, depending on the course and state. To learn how much credit is available in your state, simply go to the Course Catalog in the CRIS Learning Center, choose the course(s) you are interested in taking, and select the state for which you want insurance CE credit. The available credit hours for that state will be displayed on your screen.

Other Insurance Industry Programs

Completing CRIS courses (or the entire certification) qualifies for credit under three other programs at this time, and we are working toward having CRIS recognized by some others. Completing a CRIS course counts toward the CPCU Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program, which allows the same number of points for CPD that have been awarded for CE credits in your state. Simply record the completed CRIS courses on the CPD qualifier application to receive credit in that program. Completing the CRIS certification counts as 2 days of Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS) Fellow (RF) workshop credits toward the RF designation. Obtaining the CRIS certification also satisfies the requirement of completing a non-NAIW educational program/designation to earn the Certified Professional Insurance Woman/Man (CPIW/M) designation from the National Association of Insurance Women (NAIW).

Getting Started

It is easy to enroll in the CRIS program. Just go to the CRIS Learning Center, go to the Course Catalog, select the course(s) you wish to take, and proceed to checkout. At checkout, you'll be asked to provide basic contact information about yourself, register your credit card for payment of the course fees, and agree to receive communications about the program and your certification from us via email. After only 5 minutes, you are on your way to the CE credit you need!
