The Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN) has pledged to equip Insurance professionals with knowledge that is in tune with modern realities to enable them provide first class services to their clients.
Its President/Chairman of Council, Sir. Muftau Oyegunle, said this whilst reinforcing the Institute’s commitment to upholding the quality and integrity of its Professional examinations.
Oyegunle said this at the Institute’s 2021 Examiners Workshop, held virtually, noting that the content, presentation, and adequacy of the Institute’s syllabus must be current and forward-looking.
According to him, the programme was organised by the Institute to ensure that that the Institute and its examiners are all on the same page in terms of the demands of the Institute and the requirements from its examiners. This he said serves to guarantee the sustained success and relevance of the Institute’s professional exams.
He noted the importance of the April 2021 diet, pointing out the debut of the foundation state in the Institute’s revised syllabus. “This diet sees the first feature of the new syllabus for the foundation stage and this is a huge step forward for the Institute. Subsequently, other stages will be introduced until the entire new syllabus is implemented across board. The goal is to provide and equip our professionals with knowledge that is in tune with the realities and demands of the modern-day insurance practice. I equally urge you all to update your knowledge in line with the new syllabus to ensure that we do not fall below already set standards,” he said.
The President/Chairman of Council equally commended the efforts of the Institute’s Secretariat and the Chairman of the Examination Committee, Past President, Venerable Ladipo Ajayi as well as members of the committee for the sterling work, they have done through the years, stressing that the Institute’s examinations remain a source of pride in the insurance industry in Nigeria and beyond it.
He also took time to recognize and appreciate all examiners who have been with the institute throughout the years and stayed diligently committed to ensuring that its examinations retain the transparency and legitimacy that it currently has, pledging the Institute’s continuous commitment to improving the quality of manpower available in the insurance industry.
