GI protection specialist Assurant Intermediary has launched its first interactive online training programme.
The programme, entitled ‘An Introduction to Home Insurance’, has been created to assist in several areas.
The course is part text and part video commentary and is finished off with multiple choice questions which upon completion yields 60 minutes of CPD accreditation and a personalised pass certificate.
Carl Stacey (pictured), head of distribution at Assurant Intermediary, said, “A lot of assumptions can be made that home insurance is relatively easy to understand.
“We have found that advisers want the confidence to actually offer advice and help to their customers with their home insurance needs.
“Confidence grows in proportion to the understanding of the terms and conditions surrounding the product as well as the vocabulary that is used and is the basis of this programme.
“Having engaged with advisers face to face, it has encouraged many advisers to offer home insurance and it seemed a logical move to make the material we use available to our introducing advisers and partners online.”
