Course Description

What happens when a fire, earthquake or other peril causes major property damage? Even with insurance, too many businesses are overwhelmed by major damage and fail in their recovery efforts, thus forcing them out of business. You will learn how to help organizations avoid this fate by having the right kinds of coverage and by having vetted experts on call.

You will learn the landscape of a major property damage insurance claim. Who are the parties involved and what role does each play?
