Management Liability Insurance Specialist (MLIS)

The Management Liability Insurance Specialist (MLIS®) continuing education 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 (D&O) liability, employment practices liability (EPL), 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.
