Award in Commercial Property Insurance

MQF/EQF Level 4 () Online Intake Opening Soon

Insurance safeguards the potential losses of those facing risks. In the context of commercial lines, this covers all potential mishaps that are experienced by businesses in their corporate capacity. Therefore, it is immediately apparent that we are referring to risks that threaten the assets of an organisation and the potential liabilities, among other ancillary products related to the business.

The programme is designed to explain the various commercial insurance products that seek to protect the material aspects of the business. These include but not restricted to Fire, Special perils, Theft, Accidental damage, Money, Glass, Goods in Transit, Business interruption, Construction, Engineering and Electronic equipment among others.

Lecturer/s on this programme are both experienced and knowledgeable and bring to the learning environment, the practical aspects related to this area of insurance, thereby enriching the learning experience throughout.

Successful candidates will be eligible to claim for 25 CII insurance credits, which are valid for the attainment of the prestigious DIPCII qualification of the Chartered Insurance Institute. The full DIPCII Diploma requires 120 credits in total to complete.
