UCT Life Insurance Claims Assessors’ Short Course

This course is run in partnership with the University of Cape Town (UCT) and is an officially endorsed UCT Short Course. The course was developed in collaboration with experienced industry practitioners to assist in professionalising the role of life insurance claims assessors. To ensure a rich and relevant learning experience, our Programme Champion, Phumla Motsa, invites a diverse group of highly experienced guest speakers, including a range of life insurance medical doctors who will share their specialised knowledge and experience with you.

Due to oversubscription in the past years, we will be offering this course in the following options: 

  1. Online - 18 full-day sessions (Wednesdays) via Zoom from 1 February to 31 May 2023
  2. Face-to-face - 20 face-to-face full-day sessions, taking place in either Cape Town or Johannesburg (depending where the greater demand is), over 5 consecutive days per month from July to October 2023 (dates TBC)

In accordance with UCT’s assessment requirements, there will be a variety of assignments and online assessments during the course, and one 3-hour final exam at the end of the course. 

The UCT Life Insurance Claims Assessors Short Course is recognised by the Insurance Institute of South Africa (IISA) for CPD points which can be claimed by delegates who successfully complete the course. To download a brochure with detailed course content and delivery approach, click here
