“The ACEMI is a one-year course intended to equip students with practical ideas, techniques and skills needed for the successful development and delivery of valuable microinsurance products and services.

“The COPMI is a 3 months course designed to provide a broad based understanding of micro-insurance,” NUST said in a statement calling for students to enroll in the two programes.

ACEMI is designed for managerial and operational staff from Life and non-life insurers, Funeral Assurers, Medical Aid Societies, Reinsurers, Intermediaries, Regulators, Academic and other interested organisations or persons.
