The CII, in collaboration with the Gibraltar Insurance Institute (GII), has launched a 'fast-track' Diploma (DIP) CII programme, which is being delivered at the University of Gibraltar from November 2017 to October 2018.
The GII was established in 2008 to provide training and education to Gibraltar's insurance industry and quickly achieved affiliated status of the CII. The GII is twinned with the Insurance Institute of Manchester, the oldest insurance institute in the UK, which was founded in 1873.
The DIP CII fast-track follows a successful launch of the CERT CII fast-track programme, which was run between October 2016 and March 2017 with a total of 23 students enrolled. A majority of the students achieved the CII CERT qualification within a six-month period. The success has been proven, with Gibraltar fast-track pass rates well above the UK national average, being 12.5% higher.
The CII Diploma Fast Track Programme is a technical and supervisory qualification for insurance staff working across all sectors of the industry. The diploma provides students with a firm understanding of insurance fundamentals, which enable them to build towards advanced technical knowledge, thereby ensuring they have the means to function effectively in a challenging and developing environment. The qualification allows the individuals to demonstrate a deeper understanding of insurance principles, products and practices and apply them within their roles. This qualification also enables students to progress to the CII Advanced Diploma in Insurance (ACII).
