Institute for Global Insurance Education (IGIE) founded in 1997 by three leading international insurance institutes, i.e., the Chartered Insurance Institute (UK); the Insurance Institute of Canada; and the Institutes (USA). Currently, IGIE is an association comprised of select, independent and international insurance institutions that are united by the common goal to deliver professional education to the insurance industry professionals worldwide.
Membership at IGIE is restricted to organizations that create, maintain, develop or deliver insurance or risk management education courses, programs and certifying examinations to the insurance, risk management, and financial services workforce. IGIE will consist of members, affiliate members and academic members. Prospective members will be invited to apply for membership.
IGIE’s mission is to develop the competencies of global insurance workers through education and certify those individuals who have met established standards of knowledge and performance. Its purpose is to establish minimum competency standards, encourage continuing professional development and develop an international benchmark for professional qualifications.
In support of its mission, IGIE will assist in creating a positive and ethical business environment for insurance professionals, assist in formulating good public policy on cross-border educational issues and support members in pursuit of their own missions. Whenever and wherever appropriate, IGIE will speak with a single voice and from a position of collective strength on global insurance education issues.
IGIE would support the mutual respect and understanding between established institutes and build on those relationships. It would also help the various insurance educational institutions around the world by offering assistance and guidance in needs assessment, course development and examination protocol. IGIE would also address the issues in the global marketplace by speaking with a strong voice on global education issues.
IGIE recognizes its member’s national and local market practices, procedures and regulations and support members in their roles as educational providers.
