EARNING THE CIC DESIGNATION
The CIC designation is earned by attending five, two and a half day institutes, including Life and Health, Commercial Property, Commercial Casualty, Personal Lines, Agency Management and the newest offering, Commercial Multi-Line. At the conclusion of each institute, a rigorous examination must be passed. You must take five of the six CIC institutes, and pass five examinations within five calendar years after passing the first exam (for example: if you pass your first CIC exam in June 2014, you must pass five exams by December 31, 2019).
The designation is awarded by officials of the Society of Certified Insurance Counselors at the conferment ceremony at MAIA's Small Agency Conference.
Once you attain the CIC designation, you must attend at least one CIC program annually to update. Note: any "tenured CICs" can maintain their designation by paying CIC dues every year and attending a qualified program every other year. The recognition of "tenured" has been granted to CICs who have met the following criteria: 1. Held the designation for 25 or more years; 2. OR CICs who have not held the designation for 25+ years, but are 70 years old or older; 3. Designation is in good standing; 4. AND membership dues are current.
All institutes are now available online in a five week, blended learning course featuring two weekly webinars, readings, quizzes and discussion board participation.
