FSLSO is building up its continuing education offerings with a new classroom course in 2012 with plans to travel to five different locations around Florida.
"Building Florida's Property Insurance Industry: A Solid Foundation in the Admitted and Non-Admitted Markets" is a three-hour course featuring an in-depth discussion of the three "building blocks" that make up the groundwork of Florida's property insurance industry including the admitted market, the regulation of rates and forms and the surplus lines industry. This course is designed to provide the student with a foundation of knowledge of the rules and regulations that govern Florida's admitted and non-admitted insurance industries through the exploration of applicable Florida Statutes.
"We want to provide the student with a thorough understanding of how the Insurance Code establishes the structure for Florida's property insurance market," commented Tom Terfinko, Assistant Director of Agent and Insurer Services. "This is a great course for both surplus lines agents as well as general lines agents as it gives the attendee an in-depth look at how the compliance requirements that regulate the admitted and non-admitted markets are similar and different. We are going to look at the Statutes in a different way, pulling out some of the interesting and often times, overlooked pieces."
Florida-licensed surplus lines agents may attend this class for FREE. Additionally, an attending surplus lines agent may bring up to two members of their support staff at no charge. All others pay a nominal fee of $60. This course has been approved by the Department of Financial Services for three hours of intermediate property and casualty credit (Course ID: 79737)
All offerings of this class will begin at 9:00 A.M. and last until 12:00 P.M.
