Continuing Professional Development

CPD Record | Online Papers

All practising members of the institute are expected to comply with the requirements of continuing professional development as prescribed by the Board. The institute recognises the need for members to develop knowledge and competence and to be well placed to add value to the claims-handling process. As a self-regulated profession we must demonstrate to the insurance community in general, and our principals in particular, a commitment to keep abreast of current developments. These are the reasons part of our ongoing qualification of members is the need for continuing professional development.

Continuing education means keeping up with changes at every available opportunity. To demonstrate compliance with continuing professional development, members must undertake an appropriate continuing education program.

Members are required to accumulate thirty (30) points over the year from 1 January to 31 December.

The accumulation of points is on a self-assessment basis which is subject to random audits.
