We are pleased to announce the
Inclusive Insurance Training Program for Supervisors in the Caribbean
Region, jointly organised by the Financial Services Commission of Jamaica (FSC), the Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii), the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) and the Toronto Centre. The training will take place from
30 January – 03 February 2017 in Kingston, Jamaica. < Register>
The training is based on a highly interactive teaching approach to reinforce learning on both technical issues as well as leadership skills. Through the use of case studies, lectures and exercises, participants will be equipped to better understand:
The importance of promoting financial inclusion in their home jurisdictions How sound supervisory principles can be applied in a manner that encourages the development of an inclusive insurance market The importance of innovation for inclusive insurance markets How to promote financial inclusion by encouraging supervisors to be adaptable in their roles to properly respond to innovative solutions Prudential and market conduct issues in overseeing inclusive insurance markets
Also, throughout the week and with the guidance of Toronto Centre’s Program Leaders, participants will put into practice Toronto Centre’s action planning for dealing with challenges faced at the workplace as well as stakeholder communication concepts in introducing inclusive insurance in their jurisdictions. This is to enable participants to develop their own action plans to implement in their home agencies when they return.
The course is targeted at middle-to-senior level officials from regulatory and supervisory agencies involved in the regulation and supervision of microinsurance in the Caribbean region. There are no tuition fees to attend the course; however, each participant is responsible for his or her own transportation and accommodation.
The course will be held in English. However, supervisors from Latin America are most welcome to attend the training and simultaneous translation from English to Spanish will be made available.
The registration deadline is on 6 January 2017.
Monday, 30. January 2017 – 8:30 to Friday, 3. February 2017 – 13:30
