This specialist qualification has been developed by the CII in partnership with the Lloyd's Market Association (LMA).
Each year we enrol candidates at the start of January and July. Spaces are limited due to high demand. This is because of the amount of work involved in assessing and accepting proposals and in marking and moderating completed dissertations, all of which are undertaken by experienced London market practitioners.
