About the CIC designation:

Geared to experienced insurance producers and company personnel, CIC is a nationally recognized designation program approved for continuing education credits in all states. CIC is one of the most highly recognized professional education designation programs in the insurance industry! The program provides a comprehensive continuing education program to individuals who have made a career commitment to insurance.

To earn the CIC designation, you must complete five CIC institutes and pass a comprehensive essay exam at the end of each course. You may complete the institutes in any order and need not attain a passing grade on the exam before continuing on to the next institute. You have five calendar years from the time you pass the first exam to complete the program.

Once you have earned the CIC designation, an anual update is required. A James K. Ruble Graduate Seminar is one of several options from which to choose.
