Local and Global

Local institutes

When you become a member of the CII in the UK, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, you automatically join a local institute of your choice, usually close to where you live or work.

This network of 58 local hubs is run by councils of members made up of professionals from across the insurance and financial planning professions who volunteer their time and support to provide services to members living or working locally. The programme of support varies across local institutes according to the demands and requirements of its members, but typically includes:

  • An extensive range of CPD seminars and workshops covering technical, regulatory and revision related topics
  • Access to 'soft' business skills sessions to provide essential non-technical career support
  • Social and networking activities giving you the opportunity to build relationships with your local peers
  • Student career guidance and mentoring
  • Local news and market information

All of these events can count towards your CPD requirements, if considered relevant to your professional development needs.

Affiliated Institutes

Many CII members outside the UK are also members of one of the 70 insurance institutes affiliated to the CII.  The relationship between these bodies is typically based on mutual recognition of each others' qualifications, wherever possible, thereby avoiding duplication of learning.  The aim is to work collaboratively for the benefit of members.
