CIAA Fundamentals of Accounting Course
June 14-19, 2020 | Mississauga, ON

The Bright Side

Though we would love to be able to meet in person, to catch-up, shake your hand, or give you a hug, this situation presents us with an opportunity to bring you content in a new way – one that will be accessible to all, and available when it’s convenient to you. Nothing will ever replace getting together in person (and we’re already looking forward to meeting again when its safe to do so!) but this gives us the chance to try something new and add another string to our bow. As we speak, the Board and Leadership Team are exploring ways to bring all our incredible speakers, content & exams to a screen near you! Stay tuned!


We know you have questions…

And we have some answers, though not all, yet. Please bear with our team as we navigate these uncharted waters.

"The CIAA Fundamentals of Accounting course really rounded out my knowledge of how a P&C insurer works. Starting from a business standpoint and then following it up with the accounting side as well. I learned a ton in the weeklong course and would highly recommend it for anyone working in finance at a P&C insurance company".

"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 learnt 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. All in all, everyone new to the industry should go to CIAA Fundamentals course.".
