Institute to Launch CE OnDemand
A client calls you at your insurance brokerage or agency. She’s a driver in a ride-sharing program, and she wants to know her coverage options. This is an emerging area in insurance, and you are still getting a handle on all of the risks and available insurance products.
Another client has his home and car insurance placed with you. He wants to ask about protecting his small widget company against business interruption in the event of a disaster.
As a broker or agent, how do you explain these emerging or unfamiliar risks and coverages to your clients?
CE OnDemand can help. The Insurance Institute’s forthcoming online continuing education program for brokers and agents is poised to launch in 2016.
Available anytime, anywhere, CE OnDemand is a suite of one-hour courses designed by the Insurance Institute of Canada to offer online CE credits to brokers and agents. No need to travel for your CE credits: they are as close to you as your computer.
Topics are based on a national survey to brokers and agents, who told us what they want and need.
Brokers and agents have told us they need timely and topical CE to stay on top of their clients’ insurance needs. Responding to this need, the Institute will soon launch three new courses in emerging areas such as overland flood insurance, cyber risks and insuring the sharing economy.
Looking to broaden and diversify your knowledge of the sales and service business? Explore upcoming courses in residential property claims, business interruption basics, directors’ and officers’ liability and errors and omissions insurance.
Immerse yourself in critical areas of knowledge through engaging quizzes, role-play scenarios and a virtual broker walking you through applied case studies. At the end of it all, walk away with handouts and tips you can use to better serve your clients.
A total of 10 CE OnDemand courses will be rolled out over the next year. You will have the option down the road to purchase the entire catalogue of available courses for a six-month term at a special rate. Binge on CE credits if that’s your style, or savour your learning experience over the full six months.
Stay tuned for more details about CE OnDemand. We will post more information on the Insurance Institute website as it becomes available.
