ISCM And The CAS Institute Launch New Education And Credentialing Program For Catastrophe Risk Professionals November 6, 2018
“The new credentials will allow current and emerging catastrophe risk management professionals to demonstrate the technical and professional skills needed in our rapidly changing field.”
Arlington, Va., November 6, 2018 – The International Society of Catastrophe Managers(ISCM), a professional association promoting catastrophe management professionalism within the insurance industry, and The CAS Institute (iCAS), a subsidiary of the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) offering specialty credentials to professionals, today announced the launch of a new education and credentialing program for catastrophe risk professionals.
Having previously announced a partnership to develop educational tools and resources for catastrophe risk management professionals, the organizations today have introduced two new credentials that build upon knowledge and practice in this field and provide a benchmark for knowledge and skills in catastrophe risk:
“Our new credentials are evidence of professionalism and value that has been brought to the management of catastrophe risk over the past quarter of a century,” said ISCM President Nicholas DiMuzio. “The new credentials will allow current and emerging catastrophe risk management professionals to demonstrate the technical and professional skills needed in our rapidly changing field.”
“Our partnership with ISCM leverages the strength from both of our organizations, allowing us to deliver unparalleled resources to catastrophe risk professionals and also provide employers with a definitive professional standard in catastrophe risk management,” said Bob Miccolis, FCAS, chair of the iCAS Leadership Advisory Council. “The CSCR and CCRMP credentials will significantly expand The CAS Institute’s portfolio of specialty professional credentials for quantitative practice areas.”
Registration is now open for the first course and exam. Additional information about the credential requirements can be found at CatRiskCredentials.org.
