Assess is a web based system, written specifically from a general insurance perspective and designed

to help you meet your organisation’s training and competency requirements. There are over 300 courses

and 4,000 assessment questions available in Assess. These are spread across 7 definitive catalogues

each designed to comprehensively cover a particular aspect of the general insurance industry. Assess

covers everything from the basic principles of insurance and regulation to the more technical areas. This

guide to content details the full suite of learning material available in Assess.


Starting from the basics and working upwards, this catalogue provides a straightforward introduction to the

world of insurance a world which, especially for newcomers, can often seem confusing. Complex terminology

and systems are logically explained and placed into context, with the aim of developing a strong working

knowledge of all the essential ideas. These modules are aimed very much at new starters to insurance.

These modules establish the key functions of general insurance from the market in which insurance providers

operate to the practicalities of underwriting cover and handling claims in a real-world context. Taken as

a whole, they provide a comprehensive outline of how the industry operates. Also included is an in-depth

analysis of general insurance from the point of view of broking operations.


The regulatory environment in which the insurance industry operates can initially seem complex; these

modules demystify it by approaching the issues involved logically and clearly. From the role of the Financial

Conduct Authority and the provisions of key regulatory legislation, to the proper handling of complaints and

fair treatment of customers, these modules provide a thorough grounding in all aspects of regulation

and compliance.
