Insurance 101

Whether you're new to insurance or not, everyone needs time spent with the fundamentals of insurance. That's what these classes are about.

You might need to learn the basics of commercial auto coverages or errors and omissions coverage. We have those classes. Maybe you need to learn how to read a policy so that your clients know what is covered and what isn't. We have classes for that. Maybe you don't understand why the underwriters ask so many questions about buildings. We have classes for that.

These classes are perfect to supplement your new hire's licensing class. We all know that the license exam doesn't teach us everything that we need to know. That's why we have these classes here for you.

You Can't Read Insurance Policies Like Anything Else (Spanish)

$129.00
Add to Cart +

Insurance policies are hard to read. We all know it and we all act like they aren't, especially when a customer asks us a "simple" question. You can't just grab a policy and start reading page one and read all the way through. It jumps around and you have to know where to jump with it. Join us as Patrick (or Maria, in the Spanish version) brings us top guidelines for how to read an insurance policy and more importantly, the simplest ways to explain the policy to your customers.

Introduction to Local Government Liability

$129.00
Add to Cart +

Local governments deal with many issues, including unique liability exposures, that most businesses don't have to deal with. Some provide fire protection services and law enforcement services, not to mention the local school district and other departments. Each of which creates a different exposure, which needs to be addressed in their insurance program. Traditionally, many governmental agencies enjoyed a level of immunity from liability, but that concept of sovereign immunity has changed significantly over time. Join us as Brennan Quintus brings us his session on local government liability and deepen your understanding of this part of the insurance landscape.

Why is it called property and casualty insurance when you buy a property policy and a liability policy?


What is reinsurance?


What do you mean they had the wrong class code?


Audit? What is this? The IRS?


The insurance vocabulary is as full of gobbledegook as any other industry is. We believe that insurance professionals fall into two categories: the ones that think everyone understands them, and the others that pretend to understand their peers.


That's what this session is about. We plan to cover the most essential insurance terms and concepts that you will need to understand so that you can carry on conversations.
