This course answered many questions by putting terminology used day-to-day in context. I strongly believe this interactive course sets prospective attendees for success in their careers and paves the way to a better experience for clients.


This course gave a detailed yet interesting background of the concepts of insurance. The lecturers were knowledgeable and made the lecture interesting. I found it useful and will use the principles I have learnt.

Great course. I work in IT and attended to learn the business side of things. This will definitely help when having meetings with under writing and claims departments on upcoming projects.

I have learned a lot about Insurance in just a day.

I recommend beginners in Insurance to take this course as it gives a good background of the subject.

I definitely recommend.

It was a good course, everything was well-planned and organized.

Both tutors were very knowledgeable and approachable especially Mr Andre Farrugia, as his way of explanation was ideal for me because I am relatively new to the subject and he was covering the subject slowly. I really enjoyed myself and found it very interesting and useful especially for people like me that have started a new journey in Insurance in the last months.
