CMIP and the National Alliance

In the spring of 2019, IIMIS entered into an agreement with The National Alliance to take over the administration of CMIP for us. This gives us an incredible opportunity to use their expertise in running top-class insurance seminars, along with the specialty knowledge of our faculty, to build on 12 years of CMIP and expand that further. What this means for you is if you are a CIC, CRM or CPRM you can earn your annual update credits for any of those designations at our CMIP seminars.


CMIP Designation Requirements

Requirements to earn your CMIP Designation requires attendance at four CMIP Seminars and passing a rigorous examination at the end of each:

  • Insuring Waterfront Businesses
  • Insuring Marine Employees
  • Recreational Marine Insurance
  • Insuring Vessel Owners & Operators
