Frustration-free study

You’re probably feeling the pressure right now. There’s a lot to learn (usually while you’re already working) and more often than not, you’re sent on your way with a big, wordy book to memorise … and not much else.

You need to know you’re studying effectively, so you walk away from the course not only passing your exam, but prepared to put your knowledge into practice

Are you studying the right topics? 

You can read all the materials, take notes in revision sessions, spend hours searching for practice questions online – and still tiptoe into your exam, a bundle of nerves. 

We’ve been there!

"Our courses offer a comprehensive programme of guided study, saving you time and energy so you can focus on what matters most."

Samantha Ridgewell, Managing Director, Empower Development

You’re not the problem

Most revision methods prepare you to recognise the material, which only helps if you’re allowed revision material in the exam.

Spoiler alert: you’re not.

How we're different

Our CII courses help you recall the material on cue - with a mixture of digestible, easy to understand slides, helpful audio, and animations with real-life scenarios. 

What to expect: we’ll deep dive into insurance underwriting to ensure you’re fully prepared for your IF3 exam. You’ll learn about identification, assessment, and acceptance of risk, as well as rating and relevant financial factors. We’ll study underwriting procedures, as well as policy wording, structure and content, premiums, renewals, and cancellations. You’ll even learn about the more recent developments in related services, and other factors that impact the underwriting process.  

In short: we cover everything you need to study for your IF3 module, in detail.  

Not only that, but you’ve had the opportunity to practice exam style questions over and over again – before you ever set foot in the exam. 

It’s normal to be nervous. But here? You’ll be prepared.

Breeze through your IF3 course with help from the experts in CII revision!


"I found it really beneficial, it was easy to use and great to have the chapter explained in a simplified way, far less daunting than the book and the CII website which can be overwhelming! The posters and quick tests all really helped! You have done a fantastic job and I will be definitely recommending to my colleagues, thank you so much again." – Kellie 

Your ticket to IF3 success!

You don’t need to go it alone – we’re here to guide you every step of the way. Like your own personal cheerleader (minus the pom-poms).

We’re Sam and Grace, and we’re on a mission to make insurance fun. We both hold our ACII and have dedicated over 25 years between the two of us to helping insurance professionals through their CII exams.

Over the years, we’ve found certain study methods consistently yield success - where others fail. And having taken the exams ourselves, we know how dry the material can be, and how challenging it is to focus your attention where it matters most.

Previous success stories

Most people come to us via recommendation from their colleagues and friends. While we don’t want to toot our own horn too loudly, these endorsements say more than we ever could.

"Anyone studying for their CII qualifications will understand the challenge and pressure when it comes to preparing for the exams. If you are lucky, you may come across some old exam papers, or receive some dubious advice from those who have scraped a pass before. And then, once in a while, someone produces what I refer to as a ‘game changer’ in the world of learning. Sam and her team have produced world-class online revision materials to help students prepare for their CII exams. Within minutes of advertising this service, I was inundated by staff wanting access to these revision materials and by staff who had put off their studies for years.I would liken the quality of the materials to that of having your own ‘personal coach’ and they get my full recommendation for anyone wanting to study for their CII qualifications." - Phillip Westermeyer, Learning and Development Manager, Starr Underwriting Agents Ltd.

"I found this course to be an incredibly useful and encouraging aid for my studies. Sam and Grace are wonderful teachers, who really empower your goals of learning. I will be enrolling for their revision courses for all my exams going forward without hesitation and would strongly recommend to anyone who needs a boost of confidence to get back into studying." - Hannah Mellalieu 

"If anyone is studying for their cert CII then I would 100% Empower Development for their revision aids and online courses! Explains things in a different way to the textbook to help you understand!" - Natalie Husband

"Hi Sam, had my exam this morn and passed! And all I can say is wow and thank you. It was honestly so refreshing to be taught in a different way with someone explaining key terms and concepts to me. The visual were also excellent too as were the little tips you and Grace gave at the end of each chapter." - Jess


It’s the weekend and my exam is on Monday. Help?!

We recommend starting this course 6-12 weeks before your exam to give you the best learning experience possible. However, we are also humans, and know all too well that life happens. 

In a pinch, you can cover the course material in under a day. 

Test yourself with the practice questions throughout. Drink water. Breathe. You’ve got this.

Does your course teach everything I need to know for my exam?

Yep! We’ve left nothing out, although we still encourage you to read the textbook! Every topic in the module is covered in detail, and you’ll have the opportunity to practice multiple choice questions at the end of each section. 

You can go over the material as often as you like to make sure you remember and understand it.

Can you guarantee I'll pass?

Short answer - no. We can get you as close as humanly possible, and give you everything you need to be successful - but you've got to put the work in. In the unlikely event that you don't pass even with our help, if you purchase the 'revision course' you've got access to the course for 12 months. Come back, pace yourself, then try again. You can do this.

How long can I access the course?

By enrolling on this course, you get access to all the materials, questions and lectures for 12 months. Alternatively we have a 'crammers course' which gives you access for 1 week.
