MAIA offers a FIVE-PART Construction Risk and Insurance Specialist designation program (CRIS®) in partnership with International Risk Management Institute, Inc. (IRMI®).
The Construction Risk and Insurance Specialist (CRIS®) program is a specialized curriculum focusing on the complex insurance and risk management needs of construction projects and contractors. Developed by IRMI in response to concerns expressed by many contractors, the CRIS® curriculum assures that the agent, broker, consultant, or in-house risk manager or insurance purchaser understands the most important insurance needs of contractors. CRIS® certification holders have a basic-to-intermediate understanding of construction exposures, insurance, and risk management techniques, and make effort to stay on top of insurance industry changes and trends affecting contractors.
Completing the core curriculum qualifies an individual to use the CRIS certification for 12 months. To maintain the certification, the CRIS certification holder must complete only 6 hours of CRIS CE credit every 12 months. This can be satisfied through just one additional online CE course or by attending approved seminars and conferences.
CRIS certification holders must attend a full day (such as 9:00-4:00) class of approved construction risk and insurance continuing education credit during the 24 months following initial receipt of the certification and every 12 months thereafter. You may obtain this CE credit by attending approved CRIS® courses or conferences or completing online CRIS® courses.
CRIS certification holders can also update their CRIS designation by attending a 6 hour Management Liability Insurance Specialist (MLIS®) program.
Retail insurance agents and brokers may elect to have their name, firm, and phone number included in the directory of CRIS construction insurance agents and brokers. This is a free listing in a directory being promoted to contractors as a source for insurance professionals who are focused on the construction industry.
The state requires that all registrants attend a class in its entirety to receive continuing education credits (CEUs). Partial credit is not given. Late arrivals will not receive any CEU. CEUs are not based on examination results. The State of New Hampshire charges $7.00 for CE for CRIS® classes. If you need NH CE, please make your check payable to IIABNH for $7.00 and bring it with you on the day of the CRIS® class.
