New Commercial Insurance Certificate

Get the skills you need to craft commercial solutions with our three-course online national program.
For those who prefer a local in-class option, you can start this certificate with our new CIP elective, C70, which is based on the same textbook as B210 - the first course in the Commercial Insurance Certificate, and can be taken as an equivalent credit. Note that B220 and B230, the second and third courses in the certificate, are only offered in an online asynchronous format. Learn more and register.
