About this course

Kaplan Professional's hands-on Diploma of General Insurance (FNS51115) gives you the essential skills and knowledge to start a rewarding career in the general insurance industry. You don't need any prior insurance experience or qualifications, and with a choice of two study options - online self-study or Recognition of Prior Learning - you'll be ready to take that next career step in no time.

In this practical course, you'll develop a comprehensive understanding of the financial services industry, from general insurance products, underwriting for complex client risks and adviser training to compliance, resilience, networking, referral business, building professional relationships and piloting a sales strategy for a distribution channel.
