The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) has launched a new initiative which allows professionals to take exams remotely, even from the comfort of their own home.
Those studying with the CII can sit for exams from any location providing they have access to a ‘live’ camera, microphone, and a quiet and secure environment. With these conditions in place, each candidate will be connected to a ‘live’ invigilator who, supported by AI-based behaviour analysis technology, will ensure a fair and effective process.
The service is available across six non-UK units namely:
- AWP Award in Investment Planning;
- AWB Award in Bancassurance;
- AWF Award in Financial Planning;
- W01 Award in General Insurance;
- W04 Award in Customer Service in Insurance; and
- WH1 Award in General Insurance (Hong Kong only).
Director of qualifications and assessments at the CII Dr Nicola Mellor said, “Remote invigilation goes a long way towards ensuring that our products are fit for the needs of tomorrow, in keeping with the changing professional and education needs of our customers. As our customer base continues to grow, remote invigilation makes our qualifications more accessible to a broader range of people.”
The CII is partnering with ProctorU, an online exam invigilation company based in the US, to deliver this new service. Remote invigilation exams can be booked via the CII website. M
