  • who have been furloughed, are unemployed, have been made redundant, suffered business collapse, or those who are still working but concerned for the future.

Please read full eligibility criteria.

Applicants do not need to be members of the CII.

What do I need to provide?

You will need to provide evidence of your insurance service, full course details, and self-certification of financial need.
