This single-unit qualification is ideal for those outside the UK and starting their careers in the insurance sector. The unit (W01) Award in General Insurance helps develop a basic understanding of insurance principles, procedures and products.

Those wishing to further their studies and achieve the Certificate in Insurance can use The Award in General Insurance as an alternative to the Certificate in Insurance unit (IF1) Insurance legal and regulatory to meet the compulsory unit requirements for the Certificate in Insurance. Please note: due to the amount of syllabus overlap, candidates passing both IF1 and the Award will only be awarded one set of credits.

Upon completion, CII members are eligible to use the designation 'CII (Award)'. (Continuing Professional Development requirements apply.)

At the end of this unit, you should be able to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding in the following areas:
  • basic principles of insurance;
  • main legal principles related to insurance contracts;
  • main regulatory principles related to insurance business;
  • key elements to protect consumers;
  • Key aspects of ethics, corporate governance and internal controls.

The Award is particularly suitable for:

  • Insurance practitioners at the start of their career or seeking to build on existing knowledge through formal study.
  • Insurance practitioners needing to satisfy the minimum operating standards set by the regulators in Qatar.
Pre-requisite knowledge for the course may be obtained through prior certified learning or experiential learning at the workplace.
