Product Description

The IUMI online cargo tutorial is tailored specifically for intermediate level cargo underwriters who wish to deepen their knowledge and expertise in cargo insurance.

4.    Exclusions
5.    War and strikes
6.    Duration provisions
7.    Claims
8.    Stock throughput
9.    Project cargo
10.  Additional clauses (added by broker or underwriter)
11.  Trade clauses

Level of experience the tutorial is aimed for

The way the online course has been set up, it is suitable for young underwriters who are new in the industry and who have no knowledge at all. Ideally, they use the student activities in particular to gain greater knowledge of their own business.

Individuals who will gain most from the cargo tutorial are those who have approx. 3-5 years experience and have had some exposure to the book of business that their insurer is writing. For them the opportunity to ask questions and think about what they are actually seeing and doing within their own organisation will be greater and they will derive a different benefit overall through application and reinforcement of knowledge as well as merely gaining knowledge afresh.

The tutorial can also be viewed as a relevant source of information even for senior underwriters who wish a brief refresh on a single topic such as stock throughput or trade clauses, etc.  


Exam & bursary for WMU postgrad diploma

Students can choose to take an examination at the end of the eleven modules. Given the rigour of the qualification, candidates are advised to thoroughly work through all tutorial modules prior to the exam and to study about 75 hours to be sufficiently prepared. An additional fee of EUR 90.00 will be charged to students who wish to sit the exam. Candidates who choose to take the exam and who pass it will be awarded a certificate from IUMI which includes their score. The pass mark for the exam is 65%. Students achieving 90% or higher are awarded a certificate with distinction. The exam is an online examination which will be remotely invigilated by an exam supervisor and a webcam is required to sit the exam. The exam can be taken quarterly in March, June, September and December. Candidates who sucessfully pass the exam are invited to apply for an IUMI bursary worth US$ 8,750 for the Marine Insurance Law & Practice Postgraduate Diploma offered by the World Maritime University.
