The Regional Cooperation for Development (RCD) International School of Insurance was founded in 1970 in response to a pressing need for training insurance experts in Iran, Pakistan, and Turkey. The school was a unique experiment in regional cooperation and its development. Later, ECO College of Insurance (ECOI) was established in 1991 by reviving the former RCD International School of Insurance. The college is under the supervision of RCD Ministerial Council and ECO COM, as well as the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
