Wiser Academy unveils free insurance course


Wiser Academy has responded to the ongoing skills challenge in the insurance industry by introducing free ‘introduction to insurance’ courses to new starters.

The two-day courses will be held every month until the end of the year and will cover insurance basics such as regulation, risk, structure, claims, ethics and professional behaviours.

It is hoped that more than 500 people will complete the online course by the end of 2023.

Wiser Academy Managing Director Crescens George said, “It is a course designed specifically for new starters to broking, especially smaller brokers who don’t have their own training and development facilities in-house. We’re aiming for 50 people for each of the courses, and there is no charge as Wiser Academy is 100% committed to playing its part in encouraging people to make the most of their new career in insurance.”

He continued, “There’s a broader challenge for our sector in the shortage of talent at all levels in insurance, which tends to create wage spirals and companies taking staff from each other. Getting new joiners to kick start their career in a supported manner is vital means of keeping them in broking, and we hope the industry will respond positively to this new course.”
