The Singapore College of Insurance (SCI) is a not-for-profit professional training and education body set up in 1974, as part of Singapore's efforts to develop as a financial hub.
For more than 42 years, the SCI has remained focused in its efforts to upgrade the technical expertise of insurance and financial services practitioners, and to provide them with professional advancement opportunities, through its series of practice-oriented programmes and internationally-accredited qualifications. Since the late 1970s, the SCI has also played the role of an industry examination body to conduct regulatory examinations for those wishing to join the financial advisory, life and general insurance industries.
In recent years, the SCI has also expanded its role to include talent development programmes, such as the Insurance Executive Scholarship Programme (IESP) and the Insurance Management Associate Programme (iMAP) that have succeeded in attracting and placing numerous fresh tertiary talent into the varied functions in the industry. The SCI was voted the Asia Insurance Industry Educational Service Provider of the Year in 1997, 2001 and 2007. It has international links with professional bodies, such as The Chartered Insurance Institute in the United Kingdom and The American College in the United States of America, as well as with other training institutes in the region, through its involvement in the ASEAN Insurance Education Committee projects. The SCI has also actively helped to set up the Asia-Pacific Risk and Insurance Association (APRIA) to further insurance education, and to promote links between academia and the industry.
