Fundamentals of Insurance
As one of the main forms of risk transfer, insurance is a complex and critical part of the foundation of any risk management program. This workshop covers the basics of insurance, from insurance terms and concepts to what’s included in a policy and which types are available. The course will detail the different exposures corporations face, including those covered by property, casualty and marine insurances, as well as a brief section on government.
Using real-world examples and group discussions, participants will learn how to assess appropriate coverage for an organization, how to apply and protect assets, and even how to break down an insurance contract.
