National CPD support initiatives

To help complement your local programme, the regional membership team creates an annual CPD national offering.

The national offering is promoted in Q1 of each year and provides you with access to a diverse range of CPD events, which can be booked through the regional membership team.

You can also use the online Speaker Database that features a range of speakers and topics, which is accessible through the TOOLS tab once you log in through the My LI tab. The speaker list can also be used to find contacts for dinners and social events.

The regional membership team have also developed a range of online audio CPD presentations that members can access at their convenience. The latest presentations can be found on your local institute website, with additional content added on an ongoing basis.

Presentations are uploaded centrally and promoted to members on your behalf, further increasing the CPD programme offered by your institute and catering for members who historically may not have a relationship with your local institute.

The CII also provides access to further event resources via its Face-to-Face Training and Broker Academy services.

Institutes can use these to identify relevant topics and then either book trainers to deliver events or simply promote locally offered scheduled courses to supplement their own activities. All CII exam units, as well as a comprehensive range of general insurance and financial services technical and soft skill subjects are available. Visit for details.

The Broker Academy’s training programme delivers a mix of targeted technical, business and soft skills courses at fifteen locations across the UK. For more information visit
