Aviva underwriting academy receives CII accreditation

Aviva’s Commercial Underwriting Academy has received Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accreditation from the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), for its training modules.

The accolade means that any of the company’s 2,200 commercial underwriters who are CII qualified can gain CPD points when they complete a training module, deliver a workshop or help create new modules.

Aviva’s head of underwriting effectiveness, Jamie Lye, says: “This recognition from the CII confirms that all our underwriting training material meets a credible, external benchmark.”

CII director of accreditation services, Tamsin Mills, adds: “This is a considerable achievement because consistency of standards needs to be achieved throughout the whole of the underwriting academy to meet the CII CPD accreditation standards and Aviva is to be congratulated for doing so.”

In other CII news, Cowens Survival Capability, one of the 59 firms in the UK to have Chartered Insurance Broker status, recently claimed that the future of the Institute is at risk because too few members take an active role in promoting the organisation.

The commercial lines specialist is concerned that a number of larger businesses are happy to have the CII chartered status but fail to get involved in ensuring the continuity of quality.
