|EDUCATION AND TRAINING|
Our Camargue Academy training sessions are accredited by the Insurance Institute of South Africa.
All training is sponsored by Camargue Underwriting Managers at 33 Glenhove Road, Melrose Estate unless stated elsewhere. Limited seats are available per session, so book to avoid any disappointment.
- CPD accreditation is allocated only once per year for a training event – but nothing stops you from attending the same course repeatedly.
- Please ensure that you bring a valid driver’s licence or ID when registering to obtain CPD hours.
- Please ensure that you have been signed in and out to earn CPD hours.
We have increased the scope of training offered through the Camargue Academy. Our training will expand to provide for the following:
- IISA CPD
Should you be a member of the IISA and require CPD hours for professional standards
- FAIS CPD
As per continuous professional development fit and proper requirements in the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act 37 of 2002
- Product specific training
As per competence fit and proper requirements in the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act 37 of 2002. In terms of Board Notice 194 of 2017 Determination of Fit and Proper Requirements for Financial Services Providers, a representative must complete product specific training, prior to the rendering of any financial service in respect of a particular financial product. Key individuals and representatives (not under supervision) on the register on 1 April 2018 are deemed competent in respect of product specific training but only in respect of the products applicable to them on 1 April 2018. We however highly recommend that all representatives of financial services providers that place business with us undertake our product specific training despite regulatory exemptions.
