Specialty Lines discusses many of the more important specialized types of insurance mentioned only briefly, if at all, in other courses. These include glass insurance, boiler and machinery insurance, aviation insurance and travel health insurance. You will find for each a broad overview of its development, the exposures it addresses, the forms used and the losses they cover and exclude, and some comment on current underwriting, rating, and claims-handling practices.
