"Specialization, a global economy, the convergence of property/casualty insurance with financial services and the growth of the alternative risk-transfer market have changed the world in which we work...Our new CPCU curriculum is based on extensive market research and discussions with senior industry leaders. It is designed to meet the evolving needs of business and personal insurance consumers," said institute President and Chief Executive Officer Terrie E. Troxel.
James J. Markham, the institute's senior vice president in charge of cur riculum, gave details of the new CPCU program. "These changes require CPCU candidates to develop a more comprehensive knowledge of how risk management and insurance fit into the total financial needs of their customers."
