Register now for the Capacity Building for Insurance Supervisors - Leveraging Actuarial Skills
We are pleased to invite you to the virtual training “Capacity building for insurance supervisors: leveraging actuarial skills”, organised by the Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii), the International Actuarial Association (IAA), and the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS).
This training targets supervisors from Africa and the Caribbean. It aims at strengthening the understanding and implementation of the actuarial concepts and tools necessary to support effective insurance supervision and regulation.
The approach of this training will be on learning principles, while being as simple and practical as possible. The training takes place from 21 to 30 November 2023, with a combination of online self-paced modules and live sessions, which include a range of lecture-based sessions, case studies, breakout sessions and quizzes. The self-placed modules must be completed before the live sessions.
The training will be held in English, with no tuition fees.
During the two weeks, the live sessions will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3 hours a day – from 13:00 - 16:30 CET.
The mandatory onboarding session will take place on 31 October, 13:00-14:30 CET.
The programme has two required components that you must complete to earn your certificate:
• Self-paced learning modules on the Connect.A2ii learning platform
• Attendance at the live sessions
Plan to dedicate a total of 12 hours to live sessions and around 8 hours for the self-paced modules.
The live sessions are based on the following components:
Week 1 – Insurer Failure and Risk Based Capital
Week 2 – Valuation and Actuarial Reports
This training is directed towards mid to high level technical staff of regulation and supervision agencies from Africa and Caribbean, ideally with a minimum of three years' experience in the insurance industry. The course is not directed towards qualified actuaries, however, participants will need reasonable mathematic skills.
We are inviting two representatives from each jurisdiction. This is intended to ensure that there is shared learning within the supervisory authority and some peer support at a country level, during and after the training.
Participants are expected to commit to the training programme, consisting of self-paced modules and live sessions in November 2023. A mandatory onboarding session will take place on 31 October from 13:00-14:00 CET.
Please note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. As this is a virtual training, for supervisors wishing to participate from other regions, please register your interest and we will contact you depending on available spaces.
Participants can look forward to working and interacting with a team of very experienced trainers from various backgrounds. These trainers bring a wealth of knowledge and diverse perspectives to the training, ensuring a comprehensive learning experience enabling participants to gain valuable insights and practical skills that are applicable across different domains.
The deadline for registration is 11 October 2023. You can find the registration form here.
