SAQA 49835:

FETC Retail Insurance, Level 4

NQF Level 4 | NLRD ID: 49835

Who will benefit from the programme?

The FETC: Retail Insurance is designed to meet the needs of learners who earn commission from the sale of insurance or financial service products, but do not necessarily work in the insurance sector. Learners may be employed in a variety of positions in retail outlets across a number of different industries. The Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act (FAIS) (Act 37 of 2002) imposes licensing requirements in terms of the Fit and Proper determination of the Financial Services Board (FSB). Learners who offer combinations of Long Term and Short Term insurance as subsidiary products or services are construed to be giving financial advice. They are therefore required to be licensed with the Financial Services Board.
