  • Types of coverages they should therefore consider
  • Key policy language (to procure and to avoid)
  • The current insurance market
  • The process for obtaining insurance, and much more. 

This course is intended for those new to the industry, as well as those who have worked in the industry for a long time but need a refresher on these critical topics.
