National Education Month is turning ten!

Our annual celebration of education in the p&c insurance industry is celebrating its tenth anniversary, and we’d love to have you join us.

During National Education Month, February 1-28, learn how insurance education can build on career growth—all the way to leadership. You’ll also learn how education can be used as part of your onboarding program to ensure new employees are set up for success.

At our events, you’ll be able to find out more about the Insurance Institute’s education programs that promote continuous learning, career growth and success, including:

•    Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP)
•    Advanced Chartered Professional (ACIP)
•    Fellow Chartered Insurance Professional (FCIP)
•    General Insurance Essentials (GIE)
•    Risk Management and Commercial Insurance certificates
•    Licensing Education

Also, check out “mycareer” -our online career management resource where you’ll find tools to support your employees in their insurance career and
on-going professional development.
