TRIP Establishes Credibility and Dedication

The TRIP continuing education (CE) program was developed by IRMI to make it much easier for transportation industry financial officers and managers, controllers, in-house risk managers or insurance buyers, and their agents, brokers, and underwriters to gain specialized expertise in transportation insurance and risk management. Completing the five-part curriculum entitles you to the TRIP certification. Transportation industry financial and risk professionals who obtain the certification will have the knowledge to make wiser insurance and risk management decisions for their employers and work more effectively with their agents/brokers. Obtaining the TRIP certification will increase the competence, confidence, and credibility of insurance professionals who sell or underwrite insurance for contractors. A CFO, CFM, controller, or risk manager who buys insurance from a TRIP designee will know he or she is dealing with someone who is knowledgeable about the specialized needs of transportation companies.

Curriculum and Renewal

The core curriculum is composed of five basic- to intermediate-level insurance and risk management CE courses directly focused on the unique needs of transportation companies. Completing the core curriculum qualifies an individual to use the TRIP certification for 12 months. To maintain the certification, the TRIP certification holder must complete only 6 hours of TRIP CE credit every 12 months thereafter. This can be satisfied through just one additional online course or by attending approved seminars and conferences.
