We’ve firmed up our association with the Graduate Institute of Financial Sciences (GIFS) to recognise that team as one of our preferred training providers for two critical aspects that have bearing on your career progression.


Let’s talk firstly about GIFS’ online RE5 training. We are aware of the challenges experienced by industry professionals with passing the RE5 exam. The time in which you need to complete the training and then take a challenging exam often lead to a high failure rate. The IIWC is mindful that your time is valuable, which is why we’ve gone with GIFS as an industry-leading education provider for those of us in financial services and insurance.


GIFS’ RE5 Online Workshop includes:

  • Up to date study material

And the team takes it even further. The material is delivered in eight topics that cover the FAIS Act for easing downloading and printing.

  • Support videos

There are four support videos where an industry expert will guide you through the content of the study guides.

  • Trial run for the main exam

There are five mock exams that you will have access to in order to prepare.

  • E-Learning

You’ll also have a year’s access to the online learning platform!


GIFS is fully accredited and capacitated for Level 4 and 5 accredited programmes with various comprehensive offerings designed to suit your lifestyle, from Retail Insurance (Level 4) to Insurance Agent (Level 5).

GIFS is a massive industry player, so if you’re looking for a provider to handle your learnership and bursary programmes for next year, GIFS is an excellent choice as your preferred training provider, and they are a Level 1 BB-BEE company. GIFS is also able to assist with the claiming of tax rebates on learnership programmes in a format that’s most suited to you (traditional, online and blended learning).


And GIFS ensures its programmes are future-proof so you can ensure success wherever you choose to practice. One of their industry-leading platforms is their SMART Learning Suite, which is used for gamification. If you’re seeking to encourage teamwork, gamification is especially suited to you as it’s modelled on engagement being the name of the game. There’s creative engagement with learning material with game-playing elements including scoring points, competition and rules.”
