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.

We are happy to announce that we received approval from the Montana Insurance Continuing Education Program for three brand new webinars:

2015 Montana Insurance Legislative Updates is approved for 1 hour of CE and addresses some of the insurance changes addressed during the 2015 regular legislative session. This webinar will be offered in 2015 on October 20 and December 19. 2016 dates will be announced sometime in October. This seminar meets the requirements of the legislative changes course.

Ethical Dilemmas is approved for 3 hours of CE and helps students achieve a better understanding of the ethical dilemmas they routinely face concerning service issues, privacy and confidentiality, and understanding issues related to the insurance application. This webinar will be offered in 2015 on October 14 and December 15. 2016 dates will be announced sometime in October.

Insuring Mother Nature is approved for 3 hours of CE. Mother Nature tends to surprise us with a variety of weather events. In this course, we help students become familiar with P&C underwriting risks and how they relate to certain catastrophe risks, acquire a basic understanding about why the purchase of separate flood insurance is so important, understand the earth movement exclusion (and coverage) and how it pertains to more than just earthquakes. This webinar will be offered in 2015 on November 17. 2016 dates will be announced sometime in October.

Montana Legislative Changes and Ethics CE Courses Approved

Our five most recent submissions to the Montana Department of Insurance were approved for CE credit for producers and adjusters:

Our webinar and classroom seminars do NOT require an exam to earn CE credit. They’re interactive and fun … considering all we do is talk about insurance!

Our self-study courses require the student to complete and pass a monitored exam. They’re not as much fun as our webinars and seminars, but they’re easy to read and understand and our exams don’t include any “tricky” questions.
