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.

M92 consists of economic and financial aspects of the business and serves to equip the student with knowledge on economic principles and financial statements and reports.


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).


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).

  • Supervisors, team leaders and those with long-term ambitions of assuming managerial responsibilities.
  • Anyone wishing to hold a recognised, respected insurance qualification.
