About ASEAN Reinsurance Programme (ARP)
The ASEAN Reinsurance Programme (ARP) aims to enhance reinsurance education and talent development in the region. It is an initiative under the ASEAN Insurance Education Committee and the ASEAN Reinsurance Working Committee and managed by the Insurance Institute of the Asia-Pacific (IIAP) in collaboration with the Singapore College of Insurance (SCI), the Malaysian Insurance Institute (MII), the Thailand Insurance Institute (TII) and the Dewan Asuransi Indonesia (DAI). The ARP is a first of its kind, multi-pronged holistic talent and professional development initiative that combines technical training programmes with internships in time to come. The Programme is slated for February 2021 kicking off with a 2-hour webinar organized by the IIAP, focusing on reinsurance developments in the ASEAN marketplace. Participants who are interested in the technical training programmes will be encouraged to go through a Reinsurance Primer course and assessment, sponsored by SCI. This Primer covers the basic concepts of reinsurance. Participants can register for the various technical training programmes on a stand-alone basis. For a start, only one intake will be offered in 2021 and we will limit the number of participants to no more than 30 per class. Participants are expected to have a minimum of three years of experience in reinsurance.
