CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL LIFE INSURANCE (CPLI)
ALUCA’s new Certified Professional Life Insurance (CPLI) membership is based on a continuous professional development (CPD) pathway that aligns to the ALUCA capabilities framework, a high-level best practice industry capability framework for Underwriters, Claims and Rehabilitation Managers to develop and promote the skills and capabilities required by these roles now and into the future.
WHY A CPLI PROGRAM?
A key objective for the CPLI program was to provide a highly recognised and valued accreditation – very specific to Life Insurance – that lifts the standard and professional status for qualified life insurance underwriters, claims and rehabilitation managers.
WHY BECOME A CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL LIFE INSURANCE MEMBER?
The CPLI scheme is designed to demonstrate that Certified Professional: Life Insurance (CPLI) members have relevant life insurance industry experience, undertake continuous professional development via an annual CPD program and meet the high level requirements of the ALUCA Capabilities framework. This sets a professional benchmark and an ongoing high standard for the profession. If you want to know more about ALUCA’s CPLI membership, view the CPLI FAQ’s here.
