Introducing the Wiser Academy – 12 Day CII Certification Training To Change the Insurance IndustryTue, 10/06/2014
The Certificate in Insurance CII Qualification can take up to a year to obtain. Working in conjunction with the Chartered Insurance Institute, Wiser Academy has created an intensive course that enables candidates to become qualified in just 12 days. The course not only delivers the competency to successfully pass the three required examinations, but equips delegates with the knowledge needed to support their employer’s business objectives.
The Wiser Academy is dedicated to creating quality insurance professionals through an intensive fast-track scheme. The goal is to educate anyone joining the insurance industry quickly and efficiently to the high standards held by the Chartered Insurance Institute.
Crescens George, Senior Assistant Director of HR & Training at Be Wiser Insurance, comments:
"The qualification is a prestigious one - and something we're really proud to be offering at the Wiser Academy. The main reason for creating this intensive course was to improve the knowledge and skillset of Be Wiser staff. We're aiming to have 100% of Be Wiser front line staff CII qualified and are well on our way to achieving that goal this year. This far exceeds the level of qualified staff found in most areas of the industry."
The Academy’s aims, however, are not limited to improving Be Wiser Insurance's already high standards. The Wiser Academy offers courses to any insurance business that seeks to invest in their staff.
Furthermore, training available is not limited to CII Certification as it encompasses business skills, management development training and personal development. Courses range from negotiation, team management and effective communication to assertiveness training, coaching and customer service skills.
Crescens George comments on how it is vital for the insurance industry to improve:
"We're all about making the insurance industry a better place to work in and a better experience for customers. The insurance industry is always combating a perceived, and incorrect view that it doesn't give value to the average customer - we'd like to change that."
Training courses are provided either at the Wiser Academy, in-house at the customer’s workplace, or at a location of the customer’s choice.
