ANZIIF Skills Unit Highlight: Introduction to underwriting

Providing a detailed overview of the underwriting process and the insurance policy life cycle, as well as a basic understanding of reinsurance, this unit provides the skills and knowledge to analyse and assess risk for new business / a customer’s insurance cover application.

Through real-life case studies, insurance professionals will learn to determine the characteristics of particular risks, evaluate that risk based on the risk management process, decide if the risk is insurable and then develop and issue a contract of insurance. ‘Introduction to underwriting’ is aimed at those with two or more years of industry experience.

About ANZIIF Skills Units

In today’s ever-changing and competitive insurance landscape, the need for brokers to participate in ongoing education, training and professional development in order to keep their skills and knowledge up to date is essential to keeping clients happy and the bottom line healthy.

ANZIIF’s new education model recognises that brokers are busy and don’t have the time to spend on traditional long-form education when clients need advice and sales have to be made. Our new ANZIIF Skills Units are short and sharp and focus on specific skills that brokers need to grow their business.

To help brokers choose the education that best suits them, we’ll be highlighting units over the coming months here and in Broker Buzz.
