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.
