EMERGING PROFESSION REQUIRING PROFESSIONALS WORLDWIDE

 

Program objective

 

The objective of the program is to produce a pool of trained, knowledgeable, skilled and certified travel insurance claims professional investigators in every nook and cranny around the world. A trained and certified professional investigator will effectively investigate all aspects of travel insurance claims under such policies or extensions as follows:

 

·         Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD & D)

·         Emergency Medical Expenses

·         Hospital Benefit / Indemnity

·         Baggage, personal effects and money loss

·         Delayed Baggage

·         Travel Delay and Abandonment

·         Missed Departure

·         Personal Accident

·         Personal Accident Liability

·         Rental Car Physical Damage / Loss

·         Trip cancellation or Interruption insurance

·         Terrorism

·         Flight and Travel Accident Insurance

 

An effective travel insurance claims professional investigator should be able to report professionally on each completed investigation. A standard report is that which conveys the findings succinctly for the principals as well as for the third party including the court in the case of litigation.

Job opportunities

 

The certified professional investigators will find ready work as Travel Insurance Claims Investigator investigating claims under the different policies within the global travel insurance industry.

 

There is no pool of trained, knowledgeable and certified professional travel insurance investigators around the world. Although presently insurers make do with those who dub themselves as private investigators (PIs), but they are not insurance investigators and therefore there are glaring shortcomings in their work. Further, there are no PIs in many countries and they are not in every nook and cranny in the countries where they may exist. The trained professional travel insurance claims investigators will therefore fill the lacuna thus created. This will go a long way in helping the global travel insurance claims practitioners resolve millions of claims per year originating from every cranny of the earth.

 

The trained and certified professional investigator may choose to be self-employed.

 

-       You do the work that offers you satisfaction

-       You can work throughout your lifetime

-       You work around the world

-       You require only a laptop with Internet access

-       You can work from home and do not necessarily require an office

-       You can work on full-time basis or part-time basis

 

Those required to train include the following:

Certified Travel Insurance Claims Investigator (CTCI)

 

Ø  College and university students undertaking any course of study.

 

Ø  High school diploma holders who possess accredited professional qualifications such as in insurance, accounting, finance, marketing, etc.

 

Ø  A holder of a Master’s degree or a Ph.D. degree in any course of study.

 

The candidates for the CTCI must score 75% or more on the 100 multiple-choice, objective questions drawn from the relevant handbooks, workbooks, and Anti-Fraud Journal. On passing the examination, they will be awarded the CTCI. They can thereafter append the designation by their name such as follows:

 

 

Certified Travel Insurance Claims Consultant (CTCC)

 

The Certified Travel Insurance Claims Consultant (CTCC) is awarded to the candidate that has held the CTCI for at least five years with unblemished record. Further, the candidate would show documentary evidence or proofs to have worked at least 100 investigative assignments adjudged to meet set standards. There is no examination required.

 

The candidate can be designated in any of the two ways as follows:

 

 

For Mr. Kizito above, there may not be any need to append the CTCI designation by his name if he so chooses. The fact that he already has the CTCC indicates he must have acquired the CTCI. But he is at liberty to make the choice.

 

If you hold the CTCI designation and are already working in the insurance office, you do not require to show evidence of having worked 100 investigative assignments. All you are required to show is evidence of having worked in the claims area for five unbroken years and without blemish in respect of your ethical performance of the work and your integrity.

 

Any potential employer or client in the global travel insurance industry would adjudge such professional investigators, depending on the level of qualification, as capable of effectively investigating and reporting on travel insurance claims including the fraudulent aspects anywhere in the world.

 

Certificate, Continuing Professional Development Program (Certificate, CPDP)

 

Most of the articles and courses on the Anti-Fraud Journal link are aimed at sharpening the skills of the life and health Claims Examiners, SIU Investigators, Travel Adjusters, and field Investigators. They cover the current fraud trends. The article or course earmarked for the CPDP each year is noted accordingly.

 

We would reach out to the relevant professional associations and institutes around the world to encourage their members to update their fraud knowledge in their respective area of work.

 

The assessment would be for the candidate to write an essay stating the lessons they gained from the articles and courses and the impact on their work. The assessment would be made by members of the Advisory Board. A score of 75% or more is required for the candidate to be successful.

 

The successful candidate is awarded the Certificate, CPDP 2017 or whichever year that is applicable. The certificate is equivalent to 10 credit hours.
