We are pleased to announce the Training “Capacity Building for Insurance Supervisors-Leveraging Actuarial Skills”, jointly organised by the International Actuarial Association (IAA), the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) and the Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii) and funded by the UK Department for International Development, will take place in the first half of 2019. There will be trainings for 2 regions, namely Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean. The training for Sub-Saharan Africa will take place from 11-15 February 2019 in Mauritius and the training for the Caribbean region will take place from 1- 5 April 2019 in Trinidad & Tobago.
The training aims at strengthening the understanding and application of the actuarial concepts and tools needed to support effective insurance supervision and regulation.
The syllabus for the training is broken into 4 major components:
- Insurance Core Principles
- Risk Based Supervision
- Using Actuarial Work
- Developing Capabilities
The focus and approach of the training will be on teaching principles, while making the training as practical and simple as possible. The training techniques will involve a range of lecture based, case studies, break out sessions and quizzes with the intention to make the training as interactive as possible.
The course targets middle to senior technical staff from regulatory and supervisory agencies from Sub-Sahara Africa and the Caribbean, ideally with a minimum of 3 years working experience in the insurance industry. Participants should have a reasonable level of mathematical skills, preferably undergraduate level. The course will be held in English. Participants are expected to commit to the training program, consisting of the training in February as well as the virtual follow-ups through webinars and conference calls. There will also be some minimal pre training preparation required of the trainees.
