CIP membership

The passport to a successful career in insurance

The Institute’s CIP (Certified Insurance Professional) program sets the standard of professionalism for the insurance and financial services industry.

CIPs are insurance professionals who distinguish themselves through an Institute qualification or recognised equivalent, maintain up-to-date technical skills and knowledge through a program of professional development and abide by the ANZIIF Code of Ethics, ensuring best standards of professional practice and integrity. Being a CIP is vital to your financial services career.

CIP is very often a requirement for employment and career progression in many insurance companies as it demonstrates a high level of specialisation and expertise attained through completion of the Institute’s internationally recognised education programs.

CIP status also provides an invaluable tool for Australian financial services professionals to demonstrate that they are maintaining compliance with ASIC RG 146 and for professionals in Hong Kong and Singapore to demonstrate that they are meeting their continuing professional development requirements in their country.

The Institute actively promotes CIP throughout the financial services industry and broader community as the symbol of insurance professionalism.

Membership benefits

As a CIP you will receive a range of benefits to assist you in your career, to promote your professionalism and support you in your professional development.
