Compliance Basics Online

Our Compliance Basics Online programme has been designed to keep your staff up to date on the many new and changing regulations affecting the world of insurance. It will quickly give them a good basic understanding of compliance and how it works.

Compliance issues often result from employees doing the wrong thing because they don’t properly understand what they should and should not be doing. Without a good basic understanding of key compliance issues it’s all too easy for your people to stray into misunderstanding or disrespecting the laws, regulations, rules and policies that govern their day to day job responsibilities. Compliance Basics Online helps stop that happening.

Meet the Trainer – Diane Jenkins ACII

I have been involved in training almost as long as I have been working in insurance. (That is 40 years.) I started as an insurance company graduate trainee (only woman) and within a year was asked to do induction training to the next intake of graduates. For many years I did training alongside my main roles but in 2005 I was made the director in charge of technical training in the UK for Aon (still alongside other things), so the team designed and set up a technical training programme, some of which I delivered. I set up my own firm in 2013 after leaving Aon, I still do training alongside other things for example providing policy wording consultancy and cyber policy comparisons for a policy comparison web site.
