It was gathered that the syllabus which work is at the final stage, would contain local and foreign contents so as to produce well bred professionals.
CIIN’s Director-General Kola Ahmed said aligning the syllabus with that of the UK, will enable the institute enjoy the parity exemption that is presently granted by CII UK.
He noted that the proposed syllabus has gone through management and special committee and that the report from the committee has been passed to the examination committee for ratification.

“We have done the management review, it has has been passed to special committee and they have also submitted their report which had been passed to the examination committee for final ratification.
“The matter also came up at the last council meeting which was held last week, the chairman of the examination committee, Venerable Olusola Ladipo-Ajayi, submitted a report and he promised council that another team will vet it and that they want the syllabus to align with that of Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) of United Kingdom. So that we can continue to enjoy the parity exemption we get from them.”
