The LMA Academy plans to expand internationally with a range of technical programmes and courses to be launched in Singapore, Toronto and Vancouver.
Programmes will be launched in Singapore in March (in conjunction with Lloyd’s); Toronto and Vancouver in May, and Chicago in July, offering delegates technical training and knowledge and the opportunity to build meaningful networks and lasting relationships.
Charlotte Myers, LMA Academy & Market Talent Development Director, said; “With Lloyd’s accepting business from more than 220 countries worldwide, expanding into major international hubs is a logical step for the academy.
“Programmes 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.”
The expansion comes after LMA’s immersive and practical training programmes saw high uptake levels, with staff from every Lloyd’s managing agent attending a learning event in the past two years.
In the last two years, the LMA Academy has drawn on the technical experience and expertise of more than 2,000 practitioners that sit on LMA committees to provide technical training to more than 15,000 people across the breadth of core insurance disciplines.
