They examine the industry's business model and the role that underwriting, actuarial science, and investment practices determine an insurance company's financial success. Learners take an in-depth look at the individual components of an insurance contract or policy, including concepts such as covered perils, exclusions, riders, declarations, and conditions. Finally, the course examines the different career opportunities available in the field, including underwriter, claims adjuster, and agent.
