Continuing Education

THE CE advantage

In addition to obtaining their designations, top insurance brokers regularly participate in continuing education (CE) activities out of a thirst for knowledge, not just to obtain credits.  This knowledge serves to expand overall professionalism - for  up-to-dating on  industry information, properly servicing and educating clients, developing critical thinking and effective decision making, shaping professional ethics, and avoiding E&O problems.  Indeed, the need for ongoing education runs deep.  Considering the rapid pace of the modern world and an ever-changing industry in which today's coverage could be tomorrow's exclusion, brokers must stay up-to-date through CE.  To do otherwise would be to give way to competitors who think and act differently.
