Hear what our students have to say about their experience at MII.
As an agent in this Insurance Industry for many years, I always wanted to further my career and become more professional in my career paths. So, I begin to search and survey for a professional program. Finally, I have found it, and it was CMII and AMII courses from MII. I found that the lecturer and many students that attended the classes are professionals in this industry.

All these have benefited me when I have challenges in my work. I am glad that I have chosen the right courses and now I am furthering my studies in AMII level 1.

CMII is a basic class and AMII is more professional and advance and I will complete this course even though it is very challenging.

Learning is a Lifelong Process. There is no end to education. It is not that you just read a book, pass an examination, and then you are done with education. I learnt a lot from the CMII course, and it gave me a good and strong basic foundation to enhance my professional career and skills in Insurance. Thank you MII, for giving me this opportunity. Indeed, I thoroughly enjoyed the CMII course. I am currently pursuing AMII level 1 and will continue with AMII level 2 to pursue my career In Insurance.
Ms Chong Ju Wen Branch Assistant Manager at a leading general insurance company
I started doing the CMII because I was eager to learn all about the insurance industry, coupled with the realization that being an insurance agent is a big responsibility to shoulder. Completing the CMII made me ask myself: "Am I equipped to guide those around me and to make sound decisions for them and those around them?” And so it went. My journey into AMII continues...
Ms Saberame Sivaretnam Agent at a leading general insurance company
There is always something new to learn and our learning journey should never come to an end. Distance and age are not an excuse to stop learning. It is about how strong your will is to step further and accomplish your goals. MII has given me an opportunity to learn and enhance my knowledge and skills. I enhanced my knowledge and built a good foundation with the CMII Programme. I gained much experience by completing the CMII course; it is fun and fruitful. I am looking forward to following up with another course to step closer towards my professional development goals.
Ms Daphne Yong Nih Shyen Branch Manager at a leading general insurance company
When I was thinking about how to move forward in this insurance industry, MII offered the CMII course to their staff. I took this opportunity and enrolled myself for this course. This course changed my entire perception of insurance. I had always thought of insurance as a boring subject. CMII taught me the basics of insurance and for someone who had minimal knowledge in insurance, it was a great start. So, do not limit yourself. Nothing is impossible as the word itself says I am possible. Thank you.
