Accreditation schemes for company training programmes


CII's range of accreditation schemes for company training programmes provide formal recognition of their quality and contribution to professional development.

Participation at the accredited programmes can contribute to CII members' annual CPD requirements and, where appropriate, regulatory requirements, for example, the UK regulator's structured CPD and gap-fill requirements for those advising on package products.

CPD event accreditation »

CPD event accreditation provides formal recognition of the quality of seminars, presentations, lectures and conferences that cover relevant issues in general insurance or financial services. Events may be 'classroom-based' or virtual.

CPD event accreditation assists in demonstrating the importance of learning events in developing technical knowledge and competence. 

CPD accreditation »

A company's training programme can be accredited to provide external verification of the quality of the training. This can help participants meet continuing professional development requirements as well as providing the company with valuable industry benchmarking and advice on maximising the value of its training programmes.

Prior learning accreditation »

A company's in-house training programme can help employees attain recognised CII qualifications. Once the programme has been awarded prior learning accreditation successful candidates may be eligible to claim credits that can be used towards completing CII qualifications. The credits can be used as a faster route to qualification completion. 

Trainer accreditation »

An individual trainer can be accredited by the CII, providing a quality 'kitemark' for those delivering technical courses in insurance and / or financial planning.  CII trainer accreditation is aimed at trainers within a company training team and individual trainers, for example, freelance trainers.
