Acuideas is pleased to announce the partnership with Indwe Learning Academy in launch of its CPD-Accredited Training Programme, which offers brokers in its network free CPD training.
The programme comprises a range of short courses that afford brokers easy access to earning CPD points, and meet the obligations set out in the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act (FAIS). By completing the required number of courses offered by the programme, brokers can earn up to 22 CPD points in a 12-month cycle.
Designed by brokers for brokers, independent small brokers can glean the necessary skills and capabilities that can be applied in their field of expertise. Dicky Pillay, Executive Head at Acuideas, says, “By offering free training through CPD-accredited courses, our brokers can easily and enthusiastically fulfil their CPD obligations. It’s our way of facilitating a culture of career-long learning for brokers to be compliant in their profession, and to stay ahead of trends in the insurance environment.”
As an intermediary support service of Indwe Broker Holdings, Acuideas offers its courses in partnership with Indwe, with the aim to enhance workplace competencies and exceed industry standards. Genoulda Moore, Executive Director: Human Capital at Indwe, had this to say about the partnership: “In our efforts to inspire, nurture, and deliver world-class excellence that will make a positive impact on our communities, we want to deliver continuing professional development that benefits brokers, their profession and the communities they serve. She goes on to say, “The pace of change in the insurance is more rapid than it has ever been, and we want our broker network to be competent and to remain current in their profession”.
Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is achieved through on-going learning to earn and accumulate points to retain industry certification and memberships. CPD is often mandated by professional organisations in industries like finance, medical, and insurance, but essentially, the onus is on professionals to keep their knowledge and skills current, so that they can deliver the high quality of service that meets the expectations of customers, and the requirements of their profession.
Over and above the support services it offers, brokers are encouraged to join the Acuideas broker network to benefit from its continuous professional development initiatives.
