The National Alliance CISR High School Program

The Certified Insurance Service Representative (CISR) Program for High School gives students the opportunity to earn a nationally recognized industry designation before they graduate. Provided by The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research, this highly sought-after designation prepares high school students to become front-line professionals who analyze risks, policies, forms, and claims data. For over 33 years, the CISR designation has afforded insurance professionals a significant advantage in the workforce.

The one of a kind Insurance CISR High School program is 100% online and conducted over three semesters and includes an optional fourth-semester internship to further the education and experience needed to earn the CISR designation.

The insurance industry will need to fill 400,000 jobs by 2020, according to the National Alliance and the 2019 Insurance Industry Employment and Hiring Outlook Survey. Customer service and administration professionals are expected to be in particularly high demand – giving participants in the program a significant advantage when they enter the workforce.
