Thailand Insurance Institute (TII) has plans to set up an insurance curriculum by partnering with Malaysia and Singapore to serve the staff of insurance companies and brokerage firms in provincial areas, the institute's director Tadthep Sujitjorn has said.
Mr Tadthep, outlining the TII's training and development ideas, told The Bangkok Post that the institute intends to help develop human resources for insurance businesses over the next three years, starting in 2019.
The organisation has partnered with Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), on a plan to develop quality human resource for both life and non-life insurance businesses in preparation for rapid changes in the business environment. The curriculum is to consist of courses for financial advisers and life insurance professionals on online learning platforms, with plans to extend the programme to Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam.
"The insurance industry is facing rapid changes and challenges from both external factors and limited domestic growth. These could affect the future of insurance businesses, so we must prepare capable human resources," said Mr Tadthep.
At the end of this year, TII plans to join the Society of Actuaries of Thailand to develop its human resource development programme, to reach the goal of becoming a centre for international actuarial examinations.
