The Insurance Institute COVID-19 Advisory

The Insurance Institute is constantly reviewing the situation regarding COVID-19. The safety and well-being of our members, students and staff are our priority and with this in mind we have made a number of changes to how we conduct business, and this includes facilitating remote working along with changes to our calendar of events and Face to Face CPD series.

The updates outlined below have been informed by the most up-to-date information available regarding the virus, but as the circumstances are evolving on a daily basis there may be a need for further adjustments to be made.

We realise we are living through extraordinary times, but we want you to feel connected.

Your Insurance Institute team is now working remotely, supported by great technology, to ensure delivery of the best standards of service quality, responsiveness and effectiveness. We are absolutely committed to helping you and your business during this challenging time.

The Institute continues to operate as normal, 9:00am - 5:00pm, Monday to Friday. All departments are contactable through their regular telephone and email channels. Further details can be found on the 'Contact Us' section of our website.

Exams

This uncertain time for our industry brings with it an opportunity for technical innovation, and we intend to run our May exams using an online remotely invigilated solution for the very first time.
 
This means that instead of travelling to an exam centre, you can take your exam safely and securely on a PC or laptop, from the comfort of your home or office.

The closing date for exam applications has been extended to Sunday 5th April. No late fees will apply.

Study supports are accessible online to registered students. This means study for exams can be completed as normal.
