Exam success for Rossborough's Richard
05 Feb 2013
Commercial insurance account executive, Richard Boddy, has recently achieved Associate status after completing the Chartered Insurance Institute's (CII) Advanced Diploma in Insurance.
The Diploma requires practitioners to complete a number of varied and challenging units ranging from insurance business and finance to insurance law. Richard was required to complete written exams for all units. Upon completion of the Advanced Diploma CII members are entitled to use the status of ACII (Associate of the Chartered Insurance Institute).
Managing director of Rossborough, Clive De La Cour, said of the achievement: 'We are delighted that Richard has achieved ACII status. His success affirms his key position in our professional team, confirms our commitment to professional qualification and our status as Chartered Insurance Brokers.'
Richard joined Rossborough in 2005 and is responsible for a portfolio of commercial clients. He has more than 23 years of experience in the insurance industry and enjoys playing squash and golf in his spare time.
Richard said: 'I found the qualification quite challenging but it was also stimulating and interesting. The standard of work expected is exceptionally high and the knowledge and skills I have gained have been indispensible for my everyday work. The qualification is based on real experiences rather than textbook hypothetical examples so everything I learnt was directly applicable to my work at Rossborough. This was the most rewarding qualification I have ever achieved and would encourage all those in the insurance industry to complete it.'
The Advanced Diploma in Insurance is a professional qualification for insurance staff working across all sectors of the industry, and the logical progression from the Diploma in Insurance. Richard becomes the eighth member of the team at Rossborough to have achieved the ACII status.
The news of Richard's success comes just after Rossborough became the first company in Jersey to achieve the prestigious Chartered Insurance Broker status. This celebrated accolade is awarded in recognition of a company's professionalism and commitment to raising standards of knowledge, capability and ethical practice.
