Ridesharing

Q: Do you know how hiring a ride with a Transportation Network Company (TNC) like Uber or Lyft works?

Q: Do you know if the TNC has auto insurance, requires its drivers to have insurance, and/or conducts background checks before hiring drivers?

Q: If you want to drive for a TNC, do you know if you must pass a background check, if your car must pass an inspection, if you must have certain types and limits of insurance?

Q: When does a ride really begin and end? How much does one cost and how high can the prices go?

Q: What’s all the hooplah about?


We’ll answer these and other questions during our live webinar, Ridesharing, which will be presented on May 16 at 11 a.m. Mountain/1 p.m. Eastern time. Insurance producers and adjusters in Montana will earn 1 hour of continuing education (CE) credit for completing the webinar and click here to register.

Our June Newsletter is Now Available

Here’s a link to our June Newsletter, which contains the latest news about our insurance continuing education course curriculum: http://us2.campaign-archive1.com/?u=153f99e08d4b5ee668e796186&id=110531a4bd

We will be visiting Missoula in September, where Linda will present 24 hours of classroom CE at the Staybridge Suites on the north side of town. For more information about these events, including pricing and discounts, click here.

Our hottest webinar at the moment seems to be the 1-hour Renting Cars, which explains the issues that arise when an individual or business rents a car and then expects the personal or business auto policy to extend coverage. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always go as smoothly as expected because a number of conflicts exist between the car rental agreement and the insurance contract.

March Newsletter and Insurance CE Schedule

Our March newsletter was published online today, along with our upcoming insurance CE schedule. For those of you who are unaware, in addition to offering our insurance CE webinars in Montana we now offer them in the state of Oregon. We are also presenting our CE webinar courses in-house so, if you’d like your agency/company staff to attend the same webinar–either one we are already offering or one we design especially for you, contact Linda directly for more information.

Thanks, FloodCo and Montana Logging Association!

We had TERRIFIC insurance continuing education classroom seminars in Bigfork and Kalispell last week, thanks to the folks at FloodCo of Whitefish and the Montana Logging Association in Kalispell.

Marina Cay Classroom framedLloy Griffing of FloodCo hosted three insurance CE seminars at the Marina Cay Resort in Bigfork on Monday, October 5th. Despite the dry subjects (Montana law, ethics, and cyber security), we had a terrific time and are looking forward to returning to the area in the spring for another FloodCo-sponsored event.

We spent the day on Tuesday, October 6 with Coleen, Erica, and John at the Montana Logging Association. These wonderful people were kind enough to host the day’s two Marina Cay view framedseminars: Insuring Mother Nature and Insurance Fraud.

We appreciate our clients, as well. If it weren’t for their enthusiastic invitations to return to Montana, and their faithful attendance at our classroom seminars, we wouldn’t be able to have this much fun … this often … in Montana.

3 Brand New Insurance CE Webinars Approved in Montana
