Africa Reinsurance Corporation has introduced the Young Insurance Professionals Programmes as part of its efforts to grow young professionals on the continent.
According to the reinsurer, YIPP is an online training programme, which is free of charge and targets all insurance/reinsurance professionals under 32, who are working with insurance or reinsurance companies, broking firms, insurance supervisory authorities and other related organisations.
According to the firm, the 14 courses, which are carefully selected and well designed, will build a solid foundation in insurance and reinsurance for participants – a key component for career development in the industry.
“YIPP is another milestone in the corporate social responsibility initiatives of Africa Re, in line with its mission of fostering the development of the insurance and reinsurance industry in Africa,” it stated.
It added that the best participants in the nine- month online training would get a certificate of completion issued by Africa Re; invitation to a capstone on-campus where they would be introduced to cutting-edge managerial and leadership skills; and sponsorship to attend one of the major insurance/reinsurance events in Africa.
Interested candidates are requested to submit an online application latest by June 6.
