The easy way to study

Whether you’re an insurance professional, or working in a supporting function like marketing or finance, the London Market Insurance Essentials module can be overwhelming if you’re studying by yourself. 

More often than not, you’re sent on your way with a big book of information to memorise… and not much else.

The problem with traditional study is that you don’t know when you’ve done enough. 

How do you know you’ve studied the right topics? 

You can read all the materials, take notes in revision sessions, spend hours searching for mock exams online, and still end up bleary-eyed at 2am, rereading the same sentence 3 times and not retaining a single word. 

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 train your brain to recall the material on cue - with a mixture of digestible, easy to understand slides, helpful audio, and animations involving real-life scenarios.

What to expect: through our course, you’ll gain a broad understanding of the London market and how it works with regard to insurance matters. You’ll learn all about buying and selling insurance, legal principles, and the key classes of business you’re likely to come across in the London market. Finally, you’ll understand how the market is structured, regulatory framework, and the roles of brokers and underwriters. 

In short: you’ll be taken through everything you need to know to pass the LM1 module. 

Not only that, but you’ve had the opportunity to practice exam-style multiple choice 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.

Your ticket to LM1 success!

With us, you're not going it alone. We're here to guide you every step of the way. Like your own personal cheerleader (minus the pom-poms).

Created by ACII training professionals

Samantha Ridgewell & Grace Maxted

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.

Armed with this knowledge, we devised a one-of-a-kind course revision solution that: 

✔ Walks you through the LM1 course material, step by step

✔ Strips out the ‘fluff’ and drills down into the topics you’ll be tested on

✔ Explains complicated topics in simple terms

✔ Makes concepts memorable by combining visual references with real life examples

✔ Tests your ability to recall what you’ve learned, with multiple choice tests similar to what you’ll encounter in your LM1 exam

✔ Makes learning fun

This is the only course of its kind in the U.K. (actually the world!).

Our webinars, posters, mind maps, practice questions, animations (and more) are ready to help you achieve your passing grade, and walk out of your exam feeling lighter than air, knowing you’ve given yourself the very best chance for success.

Save time, study online

Fast-track your learning and improve your recall with our on-demand, structured course. Start revising immediately and study at your own pace, then test your knowledge throughout with our exam practice questions.

✔ Study anywhere, any time

✔ Drill down into the syllabus

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 yearsI 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
