Associate

The CILA Associate membership grade is the gold standard in claims. It demonstrates that you have depth and breadth of knowledge and also proven experience in the successful handling of claims. The assessment criteria includes technical knowledge, informed decision making, effective claim management and effective communication. Becoming an Associate of the CILA is a significant achievement and enables you to describe yourself as a Chartered Loss Adjuster.

To become an Associate of the CILA you must pass an assessment process called Accreditation for Chartered Status (ACS).

You can choose your method of assessment from the following 2 options:

1. 3½ hour written exam and a 3000 word Critical Analysis of a claim

Or

2. A panel interview, a 4500 word Summary of Experience and a 3000 word Critical Analysis of a claim

The ACS assessment process is only available to CILA members who have successfully acquired the CILA Advanced Diploma qualification.

In addition to completing the ACS assessment process you must also demonstrate that you have at least 5 years experience working as a loss adjuster (reduced to 3 years if you hold a professional qualification approved by the Institute). If this experience is gained whilst working for a Chartered Loss Adjusting firm/s you will be eligible to become an Associate of the CILA (ACILA). If this experience is gained whilst working for a firm/s which is not a Chartered Loss Adjusting firm you will instead be eligible to become a Certified Member of the CILA (MCILA).

The entry fee for the ACS assessment process is £150.
