CERTIFIED INSURANCE COUNSELOR - CIC The Society of Certified Insurance Counselors (CIC) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to professional insurance education for over 45 years. The CIC Program is designed to meet the practicing insurance professional’s need for technical knowledge in all areas of the insurance industry. There are more than 65,000 participants in the CIC Program; over 30,000 hold the prestigious CIC designation. The CIC Institute is comprised of five 2 day courses including: Personal Lines / Commercial Casualty / Commercial Property / Life and Health / Agency Management. Each institute consists of 2 days of intensive classroom instruction followed by a rigorous essay examination. The examination need not be passed to receive the continuing education credit for the seminar. The successful completion of five examinations within a five-year period earns the Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) designation and the right to attend the James K. Ruble Seminars, an annual seminar established for CIC designees to maintain their designation. Becoming a CIC is a pledge to meet the challenge of lifelong professional continuing education. Practical and relevant knowledge gained keeps the CIC more competitive in meeting the changing needs of clients and the industry. CIC courses are recognized nationally by all Insurance Departments as meeting the requirements for continuing education and are therefore exempt from filing CE hours as long as their CIC designation is current. If using a CIC Seminar for CE credit, it is approved for 16 hours CE. ANY ALABAMA CIC WHO RECEIVED THEIR CIC DESIGNATION PRIOR TO 1/1/2013 IS EXEMPT FROM CE AS LONG AS THEY ARE IN GOOD STANDING WITH THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE. AFTER 1/1/2013, YOU ARE NOT EXEMPT FROM CE AND ETHICS AND CE CREDIT IS REQUIRED AS PART OF THE CE LAW.
