The CISR program stresses the understanding and analysis of risks and exposures. Designed for producers, CSR's, account executives and other insurance professionals, the CISR program fills the need for quality insurance education and training.
Each course is one day of instruction followed by an optional examination (no exam required for CE credit). The successful completion of five of the nine course examinations earns the CISR designation. You have three years from the end of the year you pass your first exam to complete your CISR designation.

Do I need to take an exam?
If you are attending the live webinar to earn the CISR or CISR Elite designation, you must take and pass the exam.
If you are attending the live webinar only for CE credit or for your CISR designation annual update credit, you DO NOT need to take the exam. Your attendance is validated by the attendance polls, and an exam is not required.
How do I take the CISR exam?
The CISR exam window will be 4:15 PM the day of the class through Thursday at 11:59 PM CST the week following the class. The instructor/onsite coordinator will need to stay and proctor for those who attend a CISR in-person classroom course and would like to take the online exam on the day of the class. The equipment for taking the exam will not be provided to the participants. Those who would like to stay and take the exam will need to bring with them their own electronic devices to be able to test otherwise they take it at home with their own approved proctor.
Do I need a proctor for the exam?
Yes, the exam must be proctored, meaning someone must see you take the test and confirm that you did not use any course materials or notes to take the test. All exam-takers will need a disinterested third-party to proctor them. More information can be found at https://scic.com/proctor-monitor-rules .
If you don't have anyone at home to proctor your exam you can contact MIIAB for proctor availability.
When do I get my results?
You results will be posted to your National Alliance My Profile Page 1-2 weeks after your exam is taken. You login https://www.scic.com/customer/account/login to your myprofile page
All CISR can also be taken self-paced online format. Please enter the code IIABMN at checkout. You have 60 days to complete the course. Testing and proctor are required. See LIVE webinars page above for more info about temporary testing requirements.
