What Is Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) and Why Should I Pursue the CPCU Designation?


Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) is a professional credential earned by individuals who specialize in risk management and property/casualty insurance.

The number one reason why you should begin pursuing your CPCU designation right now is for personal and professional development.

No matter if you’ve just started a new job, or trying to advance your career internally, the CPCU designation touches on nearly every property/casualty subject, giving you the practical skills and knowledge required to become a property/casualty subject matter expert.

Only four percent of insurance professionals hold the elite distinction of the CPCU designation.  Through becoming a CPCU you will:

    • Gain in-depth knowledge in risk management and insurance
    • Obtain practical skills that you can put to work immediately
    • Learn how to make better decisions on the job
    • Learn about the financial, legal, operational, and technical aspects of risk management and insurance
    • Earn industry-wide respect

CPCU designees are insurance professionals just like you. They are claims adjusters, underwriters, risk managers, brokers, agents, regulators, consultants, attorneys, and educators.
