Let the fun begin with a complete review of the Workers’ Compensation policy. You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of the importance of this coverage; what it does and doesn’t cover; what endorsements are necessary to adequately cover your insured as well as the state law requirements for policy issuance. Learn how to explain these issues to your insureds and how to check to make sure the correct information is being used by the carrier.

Component #2 - CGL Policy & Employer Practices Liability Policy
You'll gain a better understanding of the CGL policy and who it covers at this class. Discussion of Coverage A exclusions (such as property in your care), Coverage B (personal injury) and Coverage C (what, if any, medical payments are available to others) will be prominent. The CGL's limit structure will be reviewed for the "adequacy of limits" issue, and we'll take a look at what the EPL policy covers; why you need it; and what type of defense and limits it offers.

Component #3 - Business Auto Policy With Endorsements & Garage Policy
Let's learn what risk is eligible for a Business Auto policy (BAP) as opposed to a Personal Auto policy (PAP) - even when the vehicle is registered to an individual! We'll discuss BAP coverages & important endorsements, and how to explain to your insured that sometimes certain coverage must be purchased elsewhere - or it's just not available. Then let's look at the differences between the Garage policy, BAP & CGL. We'll figure out which insureds need a Garage policy from a premises liability and products & completed operations issues point of view. And finally we'll consider the importance of Garagekeepers Legal Liability coverage in conjunction with a Garage policy.

An in-depth look at the Condo Association form follows with a discussion of the differences between the building contents form and legal liability coverage form - and when to use them!

Component #5 - CGL & Commercial Property Endorsements
You understand the CGL and CP policies so now let's look at endorsements that can enhance or remove coverage! In the case of the CGL, you'll learn how to make the aggregate limits work for your insured; we'll discuss amending the host liquor liability endorsement and what this could mean to your insured; and we'll identify the dangerous exclusionary endorsements that could drastically modify the CGL! In the case of the CP, let's focus on how to enhance the policy with the value reporting form, ordinance or law coverage, functional replacement cost and spoilage coverage endorsements. We'll wrap up this component with final tips on additional coverages and endorsements to the CP policy.

Component #6 - Commercial Inland Marine Policy & Commercial Crime Policy
It's time to move on to the Commercial IM policy. You'll get an overview of available coverages, exposures your clients might have and how to cover them. Inland Marine coverage is essentially a "non-standard market" so we'll discuss an "analysis exposure approach" as opposed to a particular policy. The CCP becomes our next issue as we learn to identify the reasons why businesses need insurance against crime loss. A discussion of the major crime forms, their specific purpose & the important characteristics of each plan will follow.

Component #7 - D&O, Professional Liability Exposures & The Commercial Umbrella Policy
Our focus turns to the individuals' duties and defenses in the D&O policy as well as what this policy intends and does not intend to cover. We'll discuss the importance of the application process, warranty statement, and professional liability issues (E&O policy and malpractice policy included). Then we'll discuss the difference between a Commercial Umbrella and an Excess Liability policy. Can you differentiate between "stand alone" and "follow form" policies? We'll analyze exclusions, conditions, and the "concurrency of policy dates" issue.
