The Capital Market Authority (CMA) has launched its Health Insurance Diploma Programme as part of its ongoing efforts to empower Omani youth in the insurance sector with the necessary skills, abilities and knowledge in insurance and its products.
The programme included 21 employees of insurers and government agencies associated with the implementation of the health insurance project.
Mr Ahmed Ali Al Maamari, vice president of the Insurance Sector at the CMA said the course coincides with the preparations for the implementation of the health insurance project for private sector’s employees and expatriates residing in the sultanate, as well as visitors.
The implementation of the project will lead to an expansion in the size of the insurance market due to the number of applications expected to be covered by the project and thus will positively affect the revitalisation of Oman’s health insurance sector, he said.
“With this activity and expansion, there will be a need for qualified national cadres in the technical and administrative fields. This programme comes in the context of the national initiative to enable national cadres to lead the insurance sector, which was built in accordance with the laid objectives and values and in a specific period of time to strengthen the ability of the private sector to absorb the national graduates,” Mr Al Maamari added.
