Introducing digital membership certificates
During 2020 the Chartered Insurance Institute undertook a project to introduce digital qualification and membership certificates. While not directly linked to the covid-19 pandemic, the opportunity to take a digital-first approach proved particularly timely. Member feedback helped shape the process, while we have also refreshed the look and feel of all individual membership certificates (from Certificate and Diploma through Advanced Diploma to Fellowship and Chartered).
With thousands of certificates issued each year, the move to digital will have a positive impact on our carbon footprint. Digital certificates also offer a number of advantages over printed certificates, and like many other professional bodies, the CII has invested in authentication technology to bring these benefits to our learners and members. These include a digital signature, secure access to a valid version via MyCII and digital authentication which employers can use to prove the certificate is valid (reducing the risk of fraudulently copied or forged certificates).
Members can access print-ready PDF digital versions of qualification and membership certificates in a new section of their ‘MyCII’ dashboard, called ‘MyCertificates’.
