NICA Member in Virginia Achieves CIS Designation

The National Inventory Certification Association congratulates member Mike Visgauss for achieving the designation of Certified Inventory Specialist.

The National Inventory Certification Association™ (NICA) is pleased to announce that Mike Visgauss, owner of Visgauss Consulting LLC, has recently earned the designation of Certified Inventory Specialist (CIS). Achieving this designation confirms his knowledge to provide quality residential and small business contents professional inventory services.


To earn this certification, Visgauss passed specified courses developed by NICA, agreed to conduct business according to the asset industry Code of Ethics, and accumulated a required number of Continuing Education Units. He then passed the certification exam, which is the final step in achieving this designation.


There is an increasing awareness of the necessity and benefits of having a prepared photographic and written record of one’s personal property. This knowledge and the ever-increasing busy lifestyles of homeowners and business owners alike create a growing demand for a professional inventory service provider.


Achieving certification is not required for the contents inventory professional. Choosing to invest in  continuing education shows Mike’s desire to learn the industry and let his clients know that he has gone the extra mile to ensure he provides quality inventory services. He states, “My 20 years as a Claim Superintendent for a major insurance company and over 16 years as a multi-line insurance agent provides a great foundation to begin my inventory business.”


Visgauss specialized in Homeowners and Commercial Property Insurance. He holds a Consultants and Producers License in Virginia. Focusing on the contents inventory industry, he recently added his Certified Inventory Specialist (CIS) designation to his list of achievements. Mike previously earned a Master in Business Administration degree, the Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter designation, and is a Certified Fraud Examiner.
