    BCS - The Chartered Institute for IT (yes, that's really how we're supposed to address it now :p ) has launched a new certificate in IT for those working in the insurance industry.

    It's been developed with the CII (Chartered Insurance Institute) and it provides evidence of a broad understanding of the principles and use of IT in insurance, independent of any particular software or hardware platform.

    For anyone interested you can read about it HERE

    This is a great exam. Not only is it useful in it's own right, it also acts as an exemption for the Advanced Diploma module for the Diploma in Insurance (Dip CII) - from the Chartered Insurance Institute.

    It is quite a demanding exam but all the past papers are online. When I sat it 4 or 5 years ago the first half of the exam was a load of short answer IT questions (what is WIMP, network topologies etc) followed by a couple of case studies in the Insurance industry. The pass mark was pretty low (40% if I recall correctly).

    If anyone wants more info, just let me know.
