IUMI is delighted to have agreed a Memorandum of Cooperation with the National Insurance Academy (NIA) in Pune, India. India’s marine insurance market is constantly growing and Indian members are becoming increasingly involved in IUMI’s activities. The demand for educational tools for marine underwriters in India is equally on the rise. The step toward close cooperation with Indian education institutes is therefore a natural one.
The MoC with NIA provides the basis for collaboration between the two organisations in order to promote and expand knowledge and expertise for marine insurers. In this regard mutual accreditation of IUMI and NIA programmes is envisaged. The preferential membership fee for IUMI tutorials is granted to NIA students. Moreover, both organisations will seek opportunities to run online webinars together. NIA will assist IUMI in identifying suitable experts and guest speakers on topics relevant to marine underwriters from around the world. On suitable occasions both organisations will facilitate an exchange of information on specific marine insurance topics.
