The Capital Market Authority (CMA) has inaugurated the Health Insurance Diploma Programme, which includes 21 employees of insurance companies and government agencies associated with the implementation of the health insurance project.
The programme ends in January as part of CMA’s ongoing efforts to empower Omani youth in the insurance sector with the necessary skills, abilities and knowledge in insurance and its products.
Ahmed bin Ali Al Ma’amari, Deputy Chairman of the Insurance Sector at the CMA said that this certificate coincides with the preparations for the implementation of the health insurance project for private sector’s employees and expatriates residing in the Sultanate, as well as visitors.
He said that the implementation of the project will lead to an expansion in the size of the insurance market due to the number of applications expected to be covered by the project and thus will positively affect the revitalisation of the health insurance sector. He added, “With this activity and expansion, there will be a need for qualified national cadres in the technical and administrative fields. This programme comes within the context of the national initiative to enable national cadres to lead the insurance sector, which was built in accordance with the laid objectives and values and in a specific period of time to strengthen the ability of the private sector to absorb the national graduates”.
Al Ma’amari affirmed that the health insurance certificate is considered an important one because it gives the employees the necessary skills to work in the field of health insurance and it qualifies the applicant to study other professional certificates in health insurance.
