ASEAN Insurance Education Committee (AIEC)

Chairman: Michael F. Rellosa, Executive Director – Philippine Insurers and Reinsurers Association (PIRA)

Other than creating a healthy business environment within insurance industry, the ASEAN Insurance Council also puts its highest interest to the development of quality and capability of the human resources in the industry. In conjunction to this, the insurance sector must ensure that it has the talent needed to achieve the goals of meeting customers’ long-term financing and retirement needs while fulfilling its social function of providing resources for infrastructure, retirement, natural disaster risk mitigation and trade.

During the process of achieving this, the sector has realised that it has been faced with critical skills shortage, both in technical as well as top level leadership capabilities. Due to this very reason, the Council believes that a strong educational foundation is highly necessary to create quality workforce; thus the ASEAN Insurance Education Committee (AIEC) was established in 2003.

Throughout its development, various programmes have been conducted regularly by AIEC; a number of them are in cooperation with several other organisation, which are: (i) ASEAN Insurance Training and Research Institute (AITRI), (ii) Singapore College of Insurance (SCI), (iii) ASEAN Insurance Quarterly E-Magazine; (iv) Insurance Institute for Asia and the Pacific (IIAP), and (v) ASEAN Actuarial Talent Development Working Committee.

Working Committee

For its most recent programme, AIEC has formed the ASEAN Education Master Plan Working Committee in Bali on 13 July 2018. The objective of this Working Committee is to establish the ASEAN Education Master Plan to accomplish the following tasks:


  • Map out existing stock of training and certification programmes in the respective ASEAN member states; 
  • Identify training gaps across the Region; 
  • Draw up the ASEAN Education Master Plan with the time frame on execution, to meet training gaps for the industry in order to prepare itself adequately to help build an ASEAN economic power.

Already in its 2nd year, the popular ARP Training Programmes conducted for the first time in 2021, were delivered virtually to participants all over South-East Asia.
