The training for Certificate in Insurance (Cert CII) starts on 8 January and will be run over 9 sessions each lasting 3 hours until March 2024. There is a Broker and Insurer pathway for candidates to choose on a first come first served basis, subject to validating BII membership status.

The Certificate in Insurance is a core qualification for insurance staff working across all sectors of the profession, developing core knowledge You can choose between two courses. There is a course specifically for those working in insurance broking. We believe that’s a first. For everyone else, your course deals with the fundamentals of underwriting and claims. There are nine half-days of training. Full details of the subjects, dates and timings are below.
