Morning Education Session - Tricks to Fix!

Registration begins at 8:00am; Session begins at 8:30am  **3 P/C CE Hours applied for

Side jobs, change of ownership, borrowed/rented cars, loss assessments and several other classic coverage concerns are dissected in Tricks to Fix. This course reviews common personal and commercial coverage gaps that- if unresolved- are certain to expose agents to the ferocity that is an angry insured. The situations discussed in this course are far from unusual; these coverage concerns are intentionally pulled from common policies sold daily by agents. This course will challenge you to break the monotony of selling these common policies and see them for what they really are: a contract full of potential pitfalls only avoidable by the most advanced agents.

Addressed issues include: marketing, communications, technology, workflows, coverage and claims. In addition, this E&O course features interactive case studies which will engage students to defend and/or attack the positions of all four sides- insured, agent, carrier and attorney. Lines will be drawn. Bonds will be broken. Friends will leave as enemies. You have been warned!
