In a nutshell
Kaplan Professional’s hands-on Diploma of General Insurance (FNS51115) gives you the essential skills and knowledge to start a rewarding career in the general insurance industry. You don’t need any prior insurance experience or qualifications, and with a choice of two study options – online self-study or Recognition of Prior Learning* – you’ll be ready to take that next career step in no time.
In this practical course, you’ll develop a comprehensive understanding of the financial services industry, from general insurance products, underwriting for complex client risks and adviser training to compliance, resilience, networking, referral business, building professional relationships and piloting a sales strategy for a distribution channel.
Five subjects, developed with extensive industry consultation, include a progressive assessment that incorporates coaching feedback and a detailed case study with organisation and character profiles. The characters have roles as clients, insurance brokers, general insurer employees and external specialists, and you’ll have the chance to apply technical solutions to complex problems, use your initiative and evaluate your own work.
*Students may be able to obtain Recognition of Prior Learning for a Kaplan Professional award subject based on previous study and/or work experience. To do this, students must submit evidence demonstrating they have already met the requirements of the subject through other means. Evidence can take many forms, such as information about previous approved study, information about work experience, certificates, transcripts or other credentials.
