The Turkish Insurance Institute Foundation (TII) was established jointly by Milli Re and the Association of Turkish Insurance and Reinsurance Companies on May 29, 1970. The purpose of the TII is to work to further the penetration and development of insurance in Turkey, advance the insurance business, train staff for the insurance sector, identify and review economic, legal and technical matters and issues in all insurance branches including social insurance, and help the Turkish insurance industry be highly positioned in economic and social life and development.

Having offered training service to more than 30% of the Turkish insurance industry employees since its foundation, TII organizes short-term training programs, training programs on legislation, and company training in various topics. In addition to the “Basic Insurance Training Program”, which is a long-term insurance training course opened annually since 1970, TII also organizes “Advanced Insurance Training Programs”.

Within the frame of the “Compulsory Training for Insurance Agents Technical Personnel“ co-organized with TOBB (The Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey) in 2009, the TII provided training to 35,000 agents and 5,000 bank employees via 70 trainers in 18 provinces. Furthermore, the TII signed a protocol on September 22, 2010 with the Vocational Qualifications Authority established by the Ministry of Labor and Social Security with the objective of setting up and running the National Vocational Qualification System aligned with the EU. The protocol is aimed at establishing professional standards and vocational qualifications in the Turkish insurance sector. In parallel with this effort, TII became one of the eight institutions from European countries to be selected to the Committee for Recognition of European Insurance Sector Qualifications formed by Eficert (European Financial Certification Organization).

Besides being an active member of Eficert, the TII collaborates with the Federation of Afro-Asian Insurers and Reinsurers (FAIR), Institute for Global Insurance Education (IGIE) and the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).

Based on its commitment to social responsibility, the TII held 26 “Workshops for Improving the Quality of Insurance Education” and 6 “Raising Insurance Awareness in Society” seminars at universities over the past four years. In addition, the TII creates sectoral data and makes them available and accessible, in an effort to create resources for academic studies in insurance and contribute to the advancement of the sector.
