NEW CII REQUIREMENT

 

Chartered Insurance Institute (CII)U.K’s recognition of prior learning update – Malta International Training Centre (MITC)/Ghana Insurance College (GIC) qualifications.

 

We are writing to advise you of a change in the application process from January 2017. The CII is reviewing their approach to recognition of prior learning applications and the way they process them.

 

Historically the CII has accepted applications from MITC/GIC students on an exam-by-exam basis. The recognition of prior learning scheme rules require applications to be for completed qualifications. Many MITC/GIC students already apply for exemptions based on completed qualifications and the CII is keen to extend this to all MITC/GIC students. The CII has promised to provide us with a transitional period for the MITC/GIC to make any process changes until 31 December 2016.

 

From 1 January 2017 the CII will only accept applications for completed qualifications. For example:

 

  • Foundation in Insurance Certificate
  • Applied Insurance Studies Diploma.

 

In practice this means that candidates completing, for example, the MITC/GIC Certificate and the Diploma may apply either:

 

  1. a) Certificate and again on completion of the Diploma, or
  2. b) For both qualifications once, when they have completed the Applied Insurance Studies Diploma.

 

With this in place, the situation of claiming exemptions per Module will not work out on the basis of them being individual topics rather than a full qualification. We do understand that some students sought individual subjects in order to obtain CII credits for individual topics. We do recognize this advantage and we shall try to adjust our AIS modules into stand – alone qualifications. Naturally you will understand, that this needs redesigning and approval by the CII. Hopefully all will be settled prior to the end of summer 2017, and we will keep you updated
