Advanced Commercial Lines Consultant Workshop

Advanced Commercial Lines Consultant Workshop

This advanced offering is an intense, highly interactive workshop focused on assessing insurance exposures and providing effective solutions to commercial clients. By teaching participants a process that can be applied to any client’s business for uncovering and evaluating exposures, students can learn about specific coverage gaps and coverage options to enhance their lines of business. With this amplified knowledge, participants can work towards better serving their clients and standing out in the industry.


Who is this program for?

Producers with at least three years of full time commercial lines experience in the insurance industry, with exposure and basic knowledge of Workers' Compensation, Commercial Auto, Commercial General Liability and Commercial Property, or be a Hartford School Commercial Lines School alumni. Participants must also be a licensed Agent, Broker or Account Manager.


This advanced class' curriculum is designed around a specific case study and will teach the participant to explore and uncover exposures specific to any insured and determine if standard coverage forms provide adequate coverage for those exposures. If not, where can we find that additional coverage needed? 

Program Objectives:
  • Teach the participants a process that can be applied to any client’s business for uncovering and evaluating exposures, regardless of line of business
  • Expose the student to specific coverage details in each of the coverage forms reviewed that can create gaps in coverage 
  • Explore key coverage options and enhancements by line of business that should be discussed with every commercial insured 
  • Enable the participants to provide clients with insurance options and enhancements they need to remain secure
  • Workers’ Compensation – experience rating, loss analysis, pricing options and pricing negotiation
  • Property – exposure analysis, including uncovering gaps created by standard property exclusions and finding coverage solutions
  • Auto – exposure analysis and risk management
  • General Liability – exposure analysis and contractual issues
  • Data Breach – exposures, solutions and risk management tips and resources
  • EPLI – exposure analysis and identifying the key elements to be evaluated in the policy coverage form, including claims made, defense costs, varying definitions of covered “wrongful acts,” varying definitions of “loss” and “claim”
Participants will be asked to consider the top five exposures, for a sample insured, in each of the above areas.
