The College of Insurance was formed after a lot of consultation between the Government and the players in the Insurance industry. This was after the realization that the existing overseas course CII was not only expensive but less consonant with the local market needs. A curriculum that incorporated the local culture, socio-economic and legal scenario was developed.
In 1988, with Government help, the local Insurance industry incorporated the Insurance Training and Education Trust (ITET) under the perpetual Trustees Act (Cap 64) of the laws of Kenya.
The Insurance Training and Education Trust established the College of Insurance situated at-Nairobi- South C, Six Kilometres from the city centre. The ITET is made up of Trustees drawn from the Insurance industry, the Government and other stakeholders.
The College aims at being a distinguished trainer in Insurance and Business Management in East Africa and beyond.
This department coordinates all Insurance Courses that include the following;
1. Certificate of Proficiency (COP) In Insurance
2. Certificate Course in Insurance (CCI)
3. Diploma in Insurance (DIP) (KENYA)
4. Diploma in Insurance (DIPCII) (LONDON)
5. ACII Advanced Diploma in Insurance (LONDON)
The broad aim of short and management courses is to improve efficiency in the insurance industry by equipping participants with technical knowledge and skills about current and emerging products occasioned by competition and changing customer needs.
The college of insurance prides itself as the premier meeting place with upto 400 pax meeting room capacity and at the most competitive prices in the region.
