The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research has announced the postponement of all classroom programs until May 01 as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. However, the National Alliance is providing online offerings in response to the industry’s need for continuing education and credentialing updates.

The National Alliance will continue to provide online, self-study courses as well as live, instructor-led webinars. The organization’s newest instructor-led product offering is the Certified Insurance Service Representative (CISR) course and designation program.

The online instructor-led CISR program offers the following benefits, it states:

  • Tested, high-quality curriculum.
  • Interaction with and instruction by expert faculty, using real-world, practical examples.
  • Convenience – available on computer, tablet or mobile device.
  • Extended study period for exam-takers.

“The insurance industry consistently takes a leadership role in our community whenever there is a crisis,” said Danielle Janecka, head of participant experience for the National Alliance. “We would not be where we are today without the support of our colleagues, educational consultants, state associations, and state regulators. All of us have worked diligently to bring these classroom programs online.”
