CSRP Designation

The Certified Subrogation Recovery Professional (CSRP)® Designation is the specialized designation for subrogation professionals. It is a statement that those possessing the designation have met stringent academic and experience requirements and have agreed to be bound by the Code of Professional Ethics of Certified Subrogation Recovery Professionals. In its debut year of 2004, 118 subrogation professionals received their CSRP Designation. Today, more than 1,000 individuals have studied, passed the exam and are now CSRP Designees.

Subrogation Recovery: Principles and Practices remains the most complete work on subrogation available. This book is also the text on which the national examination for the Certified Subrogation Recovery Professional (CSRP)® designation, administered by the National Association of Subrogation Professionals (NASP), is based.

“As a strong proponent of continuing education and learning, I felt it was a no-brainer to matriculate into the CSRP program. Preparing for the CSRP examination allowed me to learn different areas of subrogation that I was not familiar with, specifically medical subrogation. As the only industry-wide professional subrogation program, it was important for me to obtain the designation as a testament to my commitment to the subrogation profession.”Justin DeBenedectis, CSRP, Homesite Insurance
