Course Description


Today, all people and businesses face a vast number of risks and threats that affect well being and surviving.   The continuous and rapid change of the business environment (environmental, climate, technological, economic, social, demographic, etc.) constantly create new and complex risks that need continuous and professional handling and management skills in general. This requires further learning and training of professionals in effective risk management applications, and the selection of the most suitable insurance plans.

Insurance is a way of transferring risk, and it is used as the risk reducing way for People and Corporates to achieve financial protection.  Nobody owns and drives a car without motor insurance, and while your liability as a private or professional body may not require that you have indemnity protection, would you really consider leaving these risks unprotected?  Would you risk your family’s well-being in case of an unexpected tragic event? Insurance is largely untroubled by economic downturns since many insurance products are a necessary part of our multi-risk lives. Insurance is no different from any other business opportunity. But it also comes with some unique considerations.
