New Online Series Helps Agents and Brokers Master Coverage Knowledge

Academy of Insurance, an educational platform for insurance professionals, announced a new series of coverage-based, live and interactive learning events called ‘How to Write’.

The ‘How to Write’ series offers agents and brokers coverage-centric, quality online education taught by the markets who regularly write these accounts, and who understand the pitfalls of each specific niche. The events are free to be attended by independent agents, brokers and insurance professionals.

“This is a triple-win for markets, retail agents and insureds”, says Patrick Wraight, Director of Education for the academy. “If retail agents better understand the legal aspects, sales techniques, and how to counter objections, they can significantly increase their business volume with their insureds. Insureds are then better protected against real-world issues that others have faced in their particular line of business.”

Insurers in the Professional Liability niche, such as AMS Professional Liability regularly provide professional liability for lawyers, professional liability for architects and engineers, management liability, and coverage for errors and omissions for title agents.

The program will launch with 30+ learning events, all created to help agents and brokers become more knowledgeable about a variety of specialty lines. Attendees will gain valuable insights into successfully writing accounts including cannabis, contractors, cyber, professional liability, restaurants, trucking, farm & ranch, pest control, private client insurance, staffing companies, churches, and dozens more.

“By offering these events for free, our goal is to empower insurance professionals of all levels to expand their coverage knowledge and advance their careers,” added Patrick. There is no limit on the number of participants per agency office, so everyone on the agency staff can attend at no additional cost.
