Business Insurance Needs




(253) 846-1155


Course Overview

  Business Insurance Needs is a detailed look at the aspects required to insure a business.  This course is designed for the advanced agent rather than a beginning agent.


  This course addresses auto, fire, liability, and health issues.  It also addresses issues that apply to both PC and LH lines, such as the types of insurers used and the legalities of business ethics.  E&O insurance would also apply to all license types.


  Business Insurance Needs addresses the risk management that an agent may be involved in, the types of insurers that might be utilized, the options that companies must address from a coverage checklist, and how a business is evaluated for the purposes of insurance.
