Falls Church, Va. – As part of a collaborative effort to promote insurance and financial services education in India, Atlanta-based LOMA has selected CSC to conduct LOMA's industry-specific examinations in the country.

LOMA, an international association that counts more than 1,200 member companies from more than 80 countries, offers education and training programs that cover current industry practices, operations and offers products designed to enhance knowledge and attention to quality.

According to the Falls Church, Va.-based technology and services provider chosen to administer the exams, CSC is the only company in India selected for this purpose, and will do so from its locations in Noida, Indore and Hyderabad. CSC also has centers in Chennai, Mumbai, Bangalore and Vadodara, and in total employs approximately 19,000 workers.

"We are extremely pleased to be selected by LOMA and to enhance the domain knowledge that enables our staff in India to deliver more specialized services in this industry," says Karthikeyan Subrahmaniam, head of global operations for CSC's operations in India. "We have already started getting requests from various insurance companies in India to take the exams."

"CSC's support of LOMA education will ensure further professionalization of the industry in India, and also demonstrates the passion in CSC's campaign to generate specific domain experts," says Joel Basarich, VP and managing director of LOMA's International Division.

More than 300 CSC employees in India have taken LOMA exams and are working toward professional designations such as Fellow, Life Management Institute (FLMI); Fellow, Financial Services Institute (FFSI); Associate, Customer Service (ACS); and Professional, Customer Service (PCS). CSC has more than 500 employees in the United States who have already achieved LOMA Fellow or Associate status. In addition, CSC operations in India have received LOMA's "Excellence in Education" Award for the sixth year in a row.
