CCAA & Eagle Underwriting Group Partner to Recognise Workplace Competency

The Canadian Council for Aviation & Aerospace is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Eagle Underwriting Group that recognises CCAA Partners and their commitment to workforce competency. Eagle Underwriting Group already offers a comprehensive suite of Risk Management and Insurance Solutions for the Aviation and Aerospace Industries, whilst CCAA National Occupational Standards and certification process remains the only program to recognize both knowledge and competence in 29 specific Aviation & Aerospace occupations. In a new program launched on December 1st 2016, Eagle Underwriting Group will extend specific discounts to CCAA Partners that reflect their implementation of the CCAA program and the certified competence of their workforce. Discounts start at 5% for companies who are current CCAA Partners and rise up to 15% based on recognised workforce competence.

Mike Wills, President of Eagle Underwriting Group said “We see a direct correlation between a well-trained and competent workforce and the level of risk a company represents when purchasing insurance. The CCAA system gives us a national, uniform approach to assessing this within the aviation and aerospace sector and we are delighted to reflect this in the premiums we offer. We will be happy to discuss any insurance needs with CCAA Partner companies.” Robert Donald, Executive Director CCAA said “I am very excited about this partnership with Eagle Underwriting Group. Not only does it recognise the work that has gone into developing the CCAA program over the years, but it also offers a tangible benefit to our Partners and recognizes that national competency standards contribute to a safer industry. I look forward to a long and mutually beneficial association between CCAA and Eagle Underwriting group.”
