A NEW WAY OF LEARNING
Are you looking to develop a specific skill-and-knowledge set and only want to study what is relevant to you? Each Skills Unit focuses on specific competencies — meaning that, if you want to, you only need to study units that cover what is directly relevant to your professional development needs.
In today’s ever-changing and competitive insurance landscape, the need for insurance professionals to participate in ongoing education, training and professional development in order to keep their skills and knowledge up to date is essential to achieving personal career goals.
While there is still a need for traditional semester-style study, the time commitment required often puts an unnecessary burden on already busy professionals, and the skills learnt are not always practical or relevant to the day-to-day responsibilities of someone working in insurance. Recognising this and in partnership with the insurance industry, ANZIIF has launched its new model of education: ANZIIF Skills Units.
The newly developed Skills Units offer students the flexibility to study where, when and what best suits them.
Units are formally recognised, delivered fully online and completed in just five weeks (four weeks of learning and one week of assessment per unit) or seven weeks (six weeks of learning and one week of assessment). Students can choose to complete the Skills Units that offer the specific training and skills they need as standalone courses or, if they desire, combine units to attain a full professional qualification, such as the Diploma of Insurance Broking.
Units are built around case-based interactive scenarios that are directly applicable to the workplace. At the conclusion of each unit, learning is assessed through the application of knowledge to real-world scenarios that reflect situations commonly experienced by insurance professionals.
