To earn the CIC designation, participants attend five institutes (list below with course descriptions) and pass a closed-book exam after each.
To maintain the designation, particpants must annually attend at least one program sanctioned by The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research. No testing is required to maintain the designation.
***Beginning in 2022, all CIC exams will be administered ONLINE during an "exam window" the week following the CIC Institute. Exams will no longer be taken in class at the conclusion of the institute**
