Our tutor is Rod Smith FCII FCILA who has worked as a chartered loss adjuster and CII trainer since he began his insurance career here in Bristol in 1974. He was a CII postal tutor for M05 for five years, so is well-placed to outline what an examiner is looking for in assignments. He uses practical examples from claims he has seen in the UK and abroad to explain key areas such as tort, contract, agency, ‘fair presentation’, suspensive warranties, fraud, proximate cause, recoveries, and contribution, and also how to study, recall and use case law effectively.
