The next stage

We’re not the types to rest on our laurels at ALUCA, so we will be taking our accreditation scheme to the next level in the months ahead.

We are currently designing a high-level best practice industry framework for Underwriters and Claims Managers to develop and promote the skills and capabilities required by these roles both now and into the future. Our working education sub-group committee will be providing the new framework to the industry for consultation, input and sign-off.

Stand by for more information on this exciting new phase. Knowledge sharing and thought leadership will be key features of the revamped accreditation system.
