Our qualification frameworks (in insurance and financial planning) are internationally recognised and respected. It’s one of the reasons we have 125,000 members globally. The insurance framework provides a clear pathway for a career in global insurance markets.
Award in London Market Insurance (ALMI)
An introductory, two-unit qualification for those working, or with an interest in working, in the London insurance market. This marketplace deals with a huge range of risks, from commercial property to alien abduction!
Certificate in London Market Insurance
This is the core qualification for those working in the London Market. It’s the ideal next step for ALMI holders, with only one further unit in underwriting to complete. Qualification completion, and continuous professional development (CPD), allows use of designatory letters Cert CII (London Market).
Certificate in Insurance
Ideal for those with little or no prior sector knowledge, it contains one compulsory unit and other optional units on areas such as broking, claims and underwriting. Qualification completion, and CPD, allows use of the designatory letters Cert CII.
Diploma in Insurance
This sits at the technician level of the framework. There are two compulsory units on insurance law and business, plus optional units on areas from risk management to aviation and space insurance. Qualification completion, and CPD, allows use of the designatory letters Dip CII.
Advanced Diploma in Insurance
The Advanced Diploma is the world’s most recognised insurance qualification – think of it as a second passport. There are the same two compulsory units as the Diploma, with a range of other units that cover advanced broking, claims, underwriting, as well as risk management, management and Islamic insurance (Takaful). Qualification completion, and CPD, allows use of the designatory letters ACII.
