The Insurance Management program is a two-semester Ontario Graduate Certificate program focused on training college or university graduates in claims investigations and adjusting, underwriting and brokering relationships within the Property and Casualty Insurance sector. This program offered by The Business School provides students with a strong educational base in various aspects of insurance and prepares graduates to function effectively in the insurance industry, leading to supervisory, management or specialists positions in business, government and service organizations. Students will be able to explain how the business of insurance works, as well as define and explain the importance of property and liability insurance. Upon graduation, learners will have acquired sufficient competency to be considered for employment in the Property and Casualty insurance sectors.

The Centennial College Insurance Management Graduate Certificate provides a pathway to the Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) designation by including seven of the 10 insurance industry-specific courses (the maximum allowed by the IIC). The remaining three courses can be taken through the IIC. Please visit the Insurance Institute for all details regarding professional designation.

Centennial College students must join IIC (at no cost) when starting the Insurance Management Graduate Certificate program and will maintain the free IIC Association membership for the duration of their full-time studies.

Students will be required to purchase Insurance Industry textbooks and resources directly through the Insurance Institute. Students will be required to register and pay fees for Insurance Industry exams through the Insurance Institute based on registration timelines strictly adhered to by the IIC (normally at the midpoint of the semester).
