AXA Commercial Lines has announced the launch of its joint underwriting academy programme with the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).

This is the second of four planned professional skills academies to cover all four core parts of the business, including sales, underwriting, claims and people management.

It follows the launch of its sales academy last October and is aimed at the professional development of AXA Commercial Lines’ staff in line with its Chartered Insurer status.
