Insurance law is one of two compulsory units making up the Diploma in insurance qualification (CII-UK). This training programme covers the insurance principles and the general aspects of contract and agency law among other topics. This course is intended for those who want to achieve an international qualification conferred by the Chartered Insurance Institute.


The Diploma in Insurance is a technical qualification for insurance staff working across all sectors of the industry. It is also the logical progression from the Certificate in Insurance. The Dip CII will provide successful participants with a firm grounding in insurance and will enable the achievement of technical knowledge, thereby ensuring they have the means to perform effectively in a challenging environment. In addition to being a valuable qualification in its own right, the Diploma can also be a milestone enroute to the completion of the Advanced Diploma (ACII).

The insurance topics available at this level are various and equip the student with technical knowledge specific to a particular business/insurance area. Students aspiring to obtain a Diploma in Insurance conferred by the CII, need to accumulate 120 CII credits with at least 90 credits obtained at either Diploma or Advanced Diploma Level. Units M05 Insurance Law and M92 Business and Finance are compulsory. The complement of topics consists of different classes of insurance including the underwriting and claims course modules that are intended to provide the student with the technical ability to work within an insurance unit.


There are no entry requirements for this course however, a good command of the English language is expected and familiarity with business subjects is also considered to be an asset. The CII recommends ‘O’ level standard of education and/or the Certificate in Insurance (CertCII)

Intended audience

  • Insurance technicians and those who aspire to be technicians.
  • Supervisors, team leaders and those with long-term ambitions of assuming managerial responsibilities.
  • Anyone wishing to hold a recognised, respected insurance qualification.
  • Insurance staff employed in support functions wishing to develop their knowledge of the business.
  • Those wanting to develop their knowledge and understanding as part of their progression towards completion of the Advanced Diploma in Insurance and Chartered status.

Up to 8/10 sessions per unit (depending on unit chosen) of 1.5 hours, held once weekly between 17:30-19:00hrs. A further 90 hours of self-study are required for each of the units chosen.
