The Institutes and JWZ Solutions announce the publication of textbooks for the Associate in General Insurance (AINS) in Arabic.
The three textbooks are:
INS 21—Property and Liability Insurance Principles
INS 22—Personal Insurance
INS 23—Commercial Insurance
The exams for these courses are also available in Arabic, and are presented in the same format as the English exams.
The translation of these study materials is a milestone in the development of the insurance market in the MENA region. JWZ’s vision is to help develop the human resources capabilities of the insurance industry in the Arab world.
“We are very pleased to be able to join with JWZ to offer study materials and exams for the Associate in General Insurance in Arabic,” said Saul J. Swartout, executive vice president of The Institutes. “The global nature of our financial markets demands global understanding and the AINS program helps provide that understanding for insurance practitioners in the MENA region.”
The Program in General Insurance (INS) builds a solid foundation for understanding insurance as it is practiced in the United States. The three INS courses cover insurance principles, practices, and policies in depth. Earning the AINS designation provides a globally respected credential that can enhance future career opportunities and help individuals in their current jobs.
To earn the Associate in General Insurance (AINS) designation, individuals must:
Pass the three Arabic (or English) INS exams
Complete the free online Ethical Guidelines for Insurance Professionals
Ethical Guidelines for Insurance Professionals is currently available in English (an Arabic language version will be available in the near future) and provides a U.S. perspective on the practice of business ethics, complete with insurance case studies.
Alternatively, the AINS designation can be earned by substituting INS 22 or 23 with an elective course from an approved list of Institutes courses.
