Changes are afoot at the Insurance Institute, CEO Peter Hohman told NICC attendees in Montreal today.

The Institute recently launched a three-course risk management certificate program. Completers qualify for up two elective CIP credits and can write the exams leading to the CRM designation.

Earlier this fall, the Institute also introduced a four-course Advance CIP Program focusing on management skills and knowledge development. For professionals who don’t hold an undergraduate degree, it will satisfy the university pre-entry requirement of the Fellowship Program.

Beginning in December, CIP and General Insurance Essentials exam will start a two-year transition to computer-based formats. Exam content will remain a combination of narrative response and objective-style questions.

The Institute has also launched an app to help students prepare for the Principles and Practice of Insurance exam. The app includes practice questions and an industry glossary.
