ALUCA

The ALUCA professional development framework

ALUCA’s accreditation scheme, launched in 2015, is based on a continuous professional development (CPD) pathway that begins when a life insurance professional or a rehabilitation and medical professional chooses to become an ALUCA member.

The five levels of membership are designed to both recognise and encourage members to continue their development and obtain recognition for their experience and study.
