Contractors who buys insurance from a CRIS designee will know he or she is dealing with a professional who is committed to the construction industry.
The Construction Risk and Insurance Specialist (CRIS) designation increases the competence, confidence, and credibility of insurance professionals who sell or underwrite insurance for contractors.

Recommended for agents/brokers, customer service representatives, and in-house risk managers.
Once you earn the right to use the CRIS certification you must engage in an ongoing continuing education process to maintain it. This involved obtaining 6 hours of approved construction risk and insurance continuing education credit during the 12 months following initial receipt of the certification and every 12 months thereafter. You may obtain this CE credit by attending approved CRIS courses or MLIS courses.
There are five required courses to earn the CRIS certification, which can be taken in any order. CRIS courses are approved for seven hours of CE for each.
