Academy Of Insurance Empowers Learning Leaders With Ready-To-Use Insurance Training

The new facilitator guides package video, course plan, Q&A discussions, and participant worksheets to provide a ready-to-use, in-person training experience for property/casualty insurance organizations.

San Diego, CA /PRNewswire/ - Insurance Journal's Academy of Insurance announced the release of their new facilitator guides as companions to the Academy's recorded webinars. Insurance educators can use the facilitator guides to lead a conversation and interaction based on the recorded webinar, without having to learn new material to teach, create presentations, or write participant handouts.

"Creating quality learning experiences for insurance professionals can take dozens or hundreds of hours. We already have the content available. It felt natural to take that recorded content and put it in a format that can be easily adapted to a classroom environment," said Patrick Wraight, Director of the Academy of Insurance.

The Academy chose the bestselling webinar, "How to Read and Understand ANY Insurance Policy" to be the first webinar to get a facilitator guide.

"We felt like the content clearly met a need for our audience. Now it's more accessible than ever. Everyone from small agencies to mid-sized insurance companies can take this content and easily teach it to any size group as often as they need to," Wraight said.

The facilitator guides mix online content with in-person training and group discussion to create a powerful learning experience. "Online training is very popular and has a lot of benefits. But bringing your team together face-to-face adds a whole new level. People start learning from each other and it becomes customized to your company," said Patrick.
