CIC - Certified Insurance Counselor

CICThe CIC program is designed to meet the insurance professional's need for technical knowledge in all areas of the industry. The program provides an in-depth practical approach for both agency and company practitioners. The program is made up of seven two day institutes (16 hours) with the optional 2-hour exam the following morning. Pass five of the seven to earn the CIC designation. Each of the seven institutes is approved for 16 WI CE.

The exam is optional and not required for state CE credit.

An individual must successfully complete five CIC examinations within five calendar years following the year the first exam was passed.

Successful completion of the five examinations earns the right to use the coveted CIC designation. Maintain the designation by attending one approved update option a year. Ruble Seminars are one option and only dues paid CICs, CRMs, CISRs, and CSRMs may attend.
