The IING presented another successful RE 1 and RE 5 Information and Preparation session at the Santam offices in Pretoria on 26 September 2016. As a result of continued requests, the first session for 2017 will follow early in the year. Details will be communicated in January 2017 on the Insurance Institute Northern Gauteng website.

About 80% of participants attended for RE 5, and about 20% for RE 1.

They agreed they would be better prepared for future examinations with the knowledge and skills gained from this last session of the year. Some of the participants mentioned they had already written the exam for the third time before the workshop, but it would have made a big difference if they had known about the course beforehand.

The IING would like to extend its appreciation and gratitude to Fatima Maharaj from LearnOn for the well-executed facilitation and to Mike of the Insurance Institute Northern Gauteng for the warm welcome of the participants.

All the best for everyone who still needs to write the examinations!
