The CIAA Fundamentals of Accounting Course is our marquee learning and development program that attracts insurance finance professionals from all over Canada. This course provides attendees with a look at every facet of the P&C Insurance business and how each function works together. You’ll be challenged by experienced instructors and peers throughout the course. The workshop provides a comprehensive study in the application and theory of P&C insurance accounting.
The CIAA is indebted to the inaugural 2020 Fundamentals of Accounting virtual class for helping the CIAA to lead the way in delivering this complex and important programming. Feedback and support from the Class of 2020 is helping to format and continually improve, so that future programs will open up more broadly to CIAA members wherever they may be located.

"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.
