Certified School Risk Manager Designation
 WASBO has joined with National Alliance for Insurance Education &       Research to provide school business officials in the state of Washington a   program for obtaining a Certified School Risk Manager (CSRM)   designation.


The Certified School Risk Managers Program is a series of five one-day courses that lead up to a career-building designation for school personnel responsible for the risk management function. The CSRM faculty is comprised of the field's top practitioners and leaders. Participants are guided through the risk management process, emphasizing practice over theory. Each one-day course includes an optional multiple-choice examination. Examinations are only required to receive the CSRM designation. All five courses are reasonably priced and locally convenient. They are available in the classroom or through CSRM Online.
