CIC Risk Management Staff to Once Again Teach School Safety Certification Sessions

Since 2011 CIC has Sponsored 41 Member Districts for CSRM Designation

Since 2011, Community Insurance Corporation has been involved in the Wisconsin School Business Officials' (WASBO) Certified School Risk Manager Program (CSRM), both as instructors of core curriculum, as well as payment for member districts to acquire the certification.

In 2019, CIC staff will once again be a part of the program, with Community Insurance Corporation’s Senior Risk Manager Jodi Traas and Risk Manager Jessica Schroeder teaching two of the five courses required for CSRM designation.

The February 6, 2019 session, "Fundamentals of Risk Management," will be taught by Jessica Schroeder and the February 7, 2019 session, "Handling School Risks," will be taught by Jodi Traas.

"Safer schools are at the foundation of what we do and Community Insurance Corporation is proud to pay for one person from each insured district to attend and become certified," said John Dirkse, executive vice president of Aegis Corporation, which administers Community Insurance Corporation. "Since 2011, CIC has paid for individuals from 41 school districts to get their CSRM designation and we believe so strongly in the importance of this program. Our staff each year instructs on school safety topics and we are proud they are recognized as industry experts."

All sessions for 2019 CSRM Program will be held at the Best Western Premier in Oshkosh and include:

  • February 6 - Fundamentals of Risk Management
  • February 7 - Handling School Risks
  • March 13 - Measuring School Risks
  • March 14 - Funding School Risks
  • April 10 - Administering School Risks

“There are so many benefits of holding the CSRM designation and we believe we have been able to make an impact in our schools,” said Dirkse. “These individuals will have the skill to identify potential sources of loss, gain trust and credibility within the school system and have a network of peers with other school business officials to share risk management ideas.”

The CSRM curriculum and national designation are provided through The National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research and offered by the WASBO Safety & Risk Management Committee. Five 8-hour courses are required for CSRM designation.
