Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) is a professional designation in property-casualty insurance and risk management,[1] administered by The Institutes. Achieving the designation requires completion of eight courses covering topics such as risk management, insurance operations, business law, finance and accounting, property insurance, and liability insurance.[2]

A designee must pass an exam on each topic and can choose between a personal insurance and a commercial insurance concentration, which includes one elective of their choosing, as well as one ethics course. These exams are standardized, two hour multiple choice, objective-type exams.[3]

CPCU designation holders are also bound by a Professional Code of Ethics, and must satisfy educational and experience requirements.[4] Designation holders have formed a professional society, the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) Society. In addition to annual national meetings which serve as a conferment ceremony, the society has over 150 local chapters throughout the country.[5]
