"I would definitely recommend the Advanced CIP to colleagues. It approaches very valuable areas of communication and critical thinking that can be applied to any position, no matter what you do for a living." – Robin Kellow, Member, Insurance Institute of Ontario
The Advanced CIP certificate consists of the following four courses*:
• A300: Critical Thinking for Insurance Professionals
Strengthens your critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills, using content that relates to the p&c insurance industry.
"I would absolutely recommend this course to colleagues. Instead of running to management with a problem, I now feel I can come up with a worthwhile solution. Extremely useful, thought-provoking and invaluable are the words I'd use to best describe this course." – Tehara Bertram, Member, Insurance Institute of British Columbia
• A310: Business Foundations for Insurance Professionals
Enhances your understanding of the p&c insurance industry within the context of business.
"Both the target market segmentation and the tools for SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis will be very useful in assessing new opportunities for me—and the company I work for." – Karen Jackson, Member, Insurance Institute of Northern Alberta
• A340: Applied Business Practices in Insurance
Examines how insurance professionals from the three core disciplines apply the tools of their trade at an advanced level.
"I'm now able to round out audits and adapt internal controls because of this course. It was also valuable to see the parallels between claims, underwriting and broker managements, and how those three disciplines handle issues." – Kathleen Keegan, Member, Insurance Institute of Ontario
