In a nutshell
Discover the dynamic world of insurance broking with this flexible course from Kaplan Professional. With two pathways available – online self-study or Recognition of Prior Learning* – this diploma can kick-start your career, and you don’t need any prior industry experience or qualifications to apply.
You’ll develop a comprehensive knowledge base that includes insurance industry products and services, Tier 1 broking advice, general and personal advice, renewals and new business, quality client service, compliance for broking clients, risk assessment and more.
