The Education Forum was established by the Executive Committee in the summer of 2016 to address the needs and demands of the global marine insurance industry for education.
It is tasked with developing educational content and promoting and delivering it to the IUMI membership. The Education Forum provides access to educational offerings of national member associations, as well as programmes delivered directly by IUMI. To date, IUMI regularly offers webinar presentations and has launched online self-paced e-learning courses for Cargo and Hull lines of business. Other programmes, including classroom instruction, are under development.
In this article for an Italian marine and transport publication, IUMI Education Forum member Massimo Spinetta provides an excellent overview over the work of the Forum thus far.
