Fast Start

The complete technical training solution for new insurance professionals

Fast Start is the only training programme combining hands-on learning and self-directed study to teach technical skills to new insurance professionals.

As offices around the world adapt to remote working, those starting out in their insurance careers have struggled to get the hands-on support they need from more experienced colleagues – who’d usually be sitting right beside them.

While most professionals can adapt relatively easily to virtual business, this way of working means new insurance professionals starting miss out on the vital early career learning experiences from being in a collaborative office environment, as well as market networking opportunities with their peers.

New to their careers and the world of insurance, these new starters need hands-on support now more than ever, and Fast Start is there to guide them through.

• Connect with like-minded people at the same stage of their career

• Regularly connect with professionals who can answer your questions and support your learning
• Build confidence in your role as you undergo a variety of exercises designed to test your knowledge via simulations and team building activities
• Make new friends!

What’s involved?

This programme is 44 hours of technical skills training, following a tailored industry syllabus delivered over 12 months. It comprises 20 hours of experiential learning in a virtual classroom, with 18 hours of on-demand study, to complete at your own pace with 6 hours of collaboration workshops.
