"The CIAA Fundamentals of Accounting course really rounded out my knowledge of how a P&C insurer works. I learned a ton in the weeklong course and would highly recommend it for anyone working in finance at a P&C insurance company." - Graham O'Bray, Assistant Controller, Red River Mutual. 2019 Graduate.

"The CIAA Fundamentals course provides an overview of Insurance business. The industry is complex and accounting concepts are similar but still carry enough differences. The Fundamentals course brings all these different aspects together in the 5-day course. I learned a lot and now present company results with complete confidence in my knowledge. The networking opportunities were great, 50 people from insurance industry from across different types of companies. Everyone new to the industry should go to CIAA Fundamentals course." - Yasir Naushahi, Senior Support Specialist, Cooperators. 2019 Graduate.
