CII Award in General Insurance

This single-unit Award is ideal for those outside the UK and starting their careers in the insurance sector. It helps develop a basic understanding of insurance principles, procedures and products including the main legal principles related to insurance contracts, the main regulatory principles related to insurance business and key aspects of ethics, corporate governance and internal controls.

Who’s it for
