Lloyd’s Market Association to Offer International Courses, Technical Programs

The Lloyd’s Market Association Academy (LMA Academy) announced that, starting in March, it will begin offering a range of technical programs and courses internationally.

The expansion builds on the success of the LMA’s immersive and practical training programs, with staff from every Lloyd’s managing agent attending a learning event in the past two years, LMA said in a statement.

In that time, the LMA Academy has provided technical training to more than 15,000 people across the breadth of core insurance disciplines.

A series of programs will be launched in Singapore in March (in conjunction with Lloyd’s); Toronto and Vancouver in May, and Chicago in July. In addition to gaining valuable technical training and knowledge, delegates can also build networks and lasting relationships with local experts and market peers, LMA said.

The LMA Academy draws on the technical experience and expertise of more than 2,000 practitioners who sit on LMA committees.

“With Lloyd’s accepting business from more than 220 countries worldwide, expanding into major international hubs is a logical step for the academy,” said Charlotte Myers, LMA Academy & Market Talent Development director. “Programs in other Lloyd’s markets will be added in due course, to help maintain and develop the skills critical to Lloyd’s remaining a leading-global re/insurance market in the future.”
