Your Continuing Professional Development

IBANZ members are required to maintain a record of their CPD that shows evidence of professional development, updating of industry product knowledge and technical and specialist knowledge.

IBANZ promotes a model of professionalism, integrating up-to-date product knowledge and specialist risk advice knowledge within the concept of dual professionalism. Insurance broking professionals are encouraged to reflect on their current practice and to articulate their development needs in terms of actions that impact on their practice. This moves the emphasis of CPD from attending a course or seminar to how it impacts upon customer relationships and public confidence.

Remain up-to-date in a dynamic profession

You may be satisfied with your current position, but there are no guarantees that your current skill-set will remain up to date within this ever-changing landscape of regulation and legislation. We are starting to see the full effects of the Financial Services Act (2008) as many financial service providers that previously have been largely unregulated are now being regulated. Insurance brokers are now operating in a profession with more accountability and consequences for poor advice.

IBANZ comprises of a team of experienced insurance professionals, who are up-to-date with trend, regulations and demands. IBANZ College promises to provide an education of the highest quality that meets the trends, regulations and demands of today, as we prepare you to be competent individuals for the future.

A competitive advantage for individuals and organisations

It is essential for any insurance broker to establish a list of regular clients. In this light, a progressing list of qualifications in the field will highlight your desire to continuously improve. This will give your clients peace of mind, demonstrating your commitment to quality and professionalism.

IBANZ understands the importance of a recognised qualification and, therefore, we offer officially recognised accredited courses and programmes by NZQA.

Continuous professional development can be critical, giving you an important competitive edge in the industry.
