Coracle help IG open P&IQ to correspondents
Press Release 27 Sept 17: Coracle’s online platform used by International Group of P&I Clubs as they open the P&I Qualification to listed Correspondents
Cambridge based Coracle Online (www.coracleonline.com), a privately owned, investor backed EdTech company, is delighted to confirm that their white-label platform (Osprey-VLE) underpins the announcement by The International Group of Protection and Indemnity Clubs (IG) that its professional qualification programme, the P&I Qualification (P&IQ), is to be opened to all listed Group Protection and Indemnity (P&I) correspondents.
P&IQ is the only professional qualification available specifically for the P&I industry. With the help of Coracle’s exam management services, more than 1,000 P&IQ exams have been sat by Club employees to date. As from end October 2017, Coracle will support IG in the roll out of the system to the Group Correspondents, as well continuing to support the Clubs.
Coracle founder and former shipbroker, James Tweed, commented, “Coracle have been supporting learners from over 70 countries in the maritime field for the past decade. P&I is a complex area of marine insurance, requiring those involved to have a detailed understanding of both the maritime industry and the particulars of P&I cover and risks. We are pleased to be part of the process of extending the accessibility of this qualification to the global network of correspondents.”
