Bangladeshi scheme will train insurance practitionersOctober 19 2015 by InsuranceAsia News Staff
Bangladeshi nationals who want to become insurance practitioners can now receive professional education through two recently established private academic institutions.
The Academy of Learning and the Bangladesh Institute for Professional Development have been set up to provide professional education to insurance practitioners.
The activities of the two institutions have been approved by the Insurance Development and Regulatory Authority (IDRA), which will also oversee the operations of the two institutions.
The two centres will provide training to insurance agents and their employers.
