I did not know how to get knowledge in a professional and systematic way but then I remembered about CII qualifications that my CEO advised me.

"Coming from a reinsurance domain, I needed to get myself up to speed with the latest motor insurance policies, regulations, underwriting and claims procedures, so these India Motor Insurance qualifications were introduced at a very apt time.I believe we are witnessing an evolution in motor insurance in India as insurers are looking to use technology to customise policies and improve claims settlement experience. The CII India Motor qualifications have given me the knowledge and confidence on the subject, as we look to address the gaps in the existing system. I never hesitate to take up a new CII exam when I see the need for it and my employer has supported me throughout this journey. The CII study material is excellent and the exams really push you to go beyond the syllabus. It's also well recognised within the industry and helps one to establish themselves as an insurance professional"
