Broker ASSESS, an online training and competency program for insurance brokers, has been named Learning Technology Solution of the Year at the Learning and Performance Institute’s (LPI) Learning Awards for 2012.
The awards received a record number of entries, and were presented at a gala dinner hosted by Sharron Davies at The Dorchester on 2 February.
Broker ASSESS was developed by the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA), the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) and Unicorn Training. They received the award on Thursday evening for what the judges described as “a really effective use of learning technologies, and as such represents significantly more than conventional eLearning.
“It covers core skills, development and CPD. The program clearly demonstrates that, whilst technology is important, content is critical.”
Kirsty Wingrove, Head of Membership at BIBA, commented, “The system has had a huge impact helping many brokers. This award is a testament to the hard work of the broker ASSESS team and the brokers on the working groups who have helped to developed the system. We are delighted with this recognition.”
Scot Grimmer, CII Broker Academy Manager, hinted that there is more to come, “This is just the start. Over the coming months we plan to provide even more support to our 30,000 users with a summer launch of new regulatory content, more interactive cases studies and new functions like online appraisals and file checking.”
