Reminder - Free Webinar on Surplus Lines Fundamentals Course is Tuesday

A free webinar on the new online course titled Surplus Lines Fundamentals, is set for Tuesday, July 10, at 2:00 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time. In May, The Institutes and NAPSLO unveiled the course in May and the two groups will offer the free webinar reviewing the course, which is designed for anyone who wants to learn how the surplus lines market works.

The webinar will:
  • Provide an overview of the course content
  • Describe the intended audiences for the course
  • Offer suggestions for adding the course to your training programs
  • Show how this course can prepare learners for the ASLI designation program
The 20-minute webinar will be presented by Randall D. Jones, NAPSLO’s Education Director, and Arthur L. Flitner, Senior Director of Knowledge Resources at The Institutes.

The course represents the newest addition to NAPSLO’s online course offerings and is ideal for training new hires of surplus lines insurers, wholesale brokers, managing general agents, and program managers. It will also serve retail agents and brokers who want to learn how to access the surplus lines market when they encounter a hard-to-place risk.

Learners who complete the course and built-in assessments earn an online certificate of completion. A separate online exam will be required only if the learner wishes to earn continuing education (CE) credit. The Institutes are filing the course for CE credit in all but two states; however, it will eventually be filed in all states. The course fee is $65 with CE credit or $60 without the CE credit option.
