Group Risk Development (Grid) will be running its Introduction to Group Risk Insurance training course in six workshops and is introducing an optional online assessment that gives successful delegates a training certificate.
The course, which is free for members and designed for individuals who have less than two years’ experience in the industry, covers products and markets; legislation, tax & trusts; scheme underwriting & pricing; market reviews, medical underwriting & claims; and industry roles, embedded services and Covid-19.
The six week course starts on 29 June 2021. Delegates successfully completing the assessment will be issued with a certificate confirming they have passed Foundation Level Training in group risk.
The training course has already been delivered to over 300 people across the industry.
Sessions will be recorded and made available for members on the Grid website for catch-up purposes.
To enrol, individuals must be employees of Grid members and have a log-in for the Grid website.
Grid spokesperson Katharine Moxham says: “We decided to introduce this style of assessment to provide delegates with an industry-recognised accreditation that they have completed foundation knowledge training. This formalisation of the training demonstrates that the delegate is committed to our industry and their own personal career development.
“The accreditation is also beneficial to employers as they will have confidence that their staff have acquired new knowledge which will assist them in their day-to-day work. In particular, we feel it’s important that delegates come away from the training with a rounded view of the group risk marketplace in order to appreciate how their company and their own role fits into the bigger group risk ecosystem.
“For group risk employers who have taken on junior members of staff or anyone just starting out in group risk, this is the definitive course covering an introduction to all aspects of our industry.”
