The potential of winning more professionals into the insurance industry has attracted the Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria to orientation camp of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) where corps members were briefed on the need to become professional members of the institute as young graduates.
The Director General of CIIN, Mrs. Abimbola Tiamiyu, who spoke at the event in Sagamu, Ogun State enlightened the corps members on the benefits of insurance to individuals, businesses and the economy at large; adding that being a member of the Institute comes with numerous advantages for the graduates especially, those who have entrepreneur skills.
“Insurance stands as the back bone of any civil society because it repositions an individual or business to its former foundation when eventualities occur. A major instance is the #ENDSARS Protest that resulted in massive destruction; those who had one form of insurance policies or the other where able to recover from the unfortunate incident.
“The beauty of insurance is that it gives peace of mind and the industry as a whole is very lucrative and viable. There are various professional career positions you can attain by been in the insurance industry. With entrepreneurial prowess, you can be an agent who markets insurance policies and earn commissions, insurance broker, loss adjuster, underwriter; consultant and much more.
“We have different entry levels at the CIIN. The foundation level qualification is suitable for those coming into the industry to gain the essential basic knowledge of the market, key discipline and products. The Intermediate level qualification recognizes technical development achieved by those with a growing understanding of the industry.
The advanced level is the professional qualification awarded to experienced and expert market practitioners. In essence, becoming a member of the CIIN would give you an edge above others in the labour market, it makes you a professional”, Mrs. Tiamiyu explained.
While wishing the Corps members the best as they journey through life, the Director General, admonished them to be loyal to Nigeria and remain exemplary ambassadors wherever they go.
