A career in risk management could be a game-changer…

For many of us, this is a time of deep reflection. With so much going on in the world around us, people from all industries, backgrounds and levels of experience are thinking carefully about their lives, careers, and what really matters. If you too are feeling a bit uncertain and unsettled about the future, maybe it’s time to consider a new career path – one that will always be relevant.


If anything, COVID-19 has taught us that the impact on unforeseen events can be widespread and devastating, and that nothing can be taken for granted. The pandemic has brought about significant changes in many, if not all, sectors. If you’re in short-term insurance, you would have already seen – and even felt – the impact. As the world finds its feet again, there’s a renewed understanding of being better prepared for unforeseen circumstances and unexpected events such as global health crises which make short-term insurance all the more relevant.


If you’re already in the short-term industry and have a relevant NQF 5 qualification, our online QCTO-accredited Occupational Certificate: Organisational Risk Practitioner will help enhance your knowledge in the field so you can continue to provide a much-needed service.


Graduates will be empowered with knowledge and skills to effectively support Risk Officers or Risk Practitioners. What’s more, individuals armed with this qualification will be able to apply for the professional designation of Associate of the Insurance Institute of South Africa (AIISA).


This qualification is best suited for individuals who:


  • Want to enhance their knowledge of specialist short-term insurance products
  • Are currently in a managerial position in the short-insurance industry
  • Operate in the underwriting and claims department of an Insurer


The programme is digitally-driven which means you can upskill or reskill from the safety of your own space, while getting all the help you may need from the GIFS team. You’ll find more details here.
