What is MLIS?
The core curriculum for the MLIS program consists of 5 courses that focus specifically on directors and officers (D&O), employment practices, and fiduciary liability exposures and insurance coverage. The loss exposures and the policy provisions pertaining to these coverage lines are examined in depth within these courses. Completers of these courses will possess substantial knowledge of these important and intricate lines of management liability insurance. They will understand common variations between insurers’ policy forms and how to arrange coverage that will respond to the risks faced by their clients or employers, whether they are large or small businesses, not-for-profits, or governmental entities.
You must pass all five courses to qualify as a holder of the MLIS certification. Each course is independent of the others and you may complete them in any order you choose.
Insurance CE credit is available in most states for an additional fee.

Thus, the MLIS program will be an intensive learning experience for newcomers to professional or management liability insurance, eliminate many important knowledge gaps for risk and insurance professionals who have little experience with these lines, and be a helpful review of the fundamentals for seasoned risk and insurance professionals.
