Maryland producers find ounce of prevention online
MIA-vetted, on-demand seminar addresses common compliance violations
(717) 795-9100, Ext. 606
Feb. 28, 2012 — Maryland producers can avoid thousands of dollars in fines and penalties — not to mention countless headaches — by spending $75 on prevention education. Insurance Agents & Brokers' recently launched on-demand Compliance Pitfalls and Ethical Responsibilities seminar shares the state's eight most violated insurance laws and regulations and how to remain compliant.
The Maryland Insurance Administration's Compliance and Enforcement Section vetted the seminar, which covers premium funds, fees, rebates and privacy, among others.
"I've taken a number of online courses in my insurance career," said Connie Phillips, CIC, LUTCF, CSA, of Connie Phillips Insurance Inc. in Frederick, Md. "The on-demand course offered by IA&B is one of the best."
IA&B General Counsel Jason Ernest, Esq., and Industry Affairs Director Claire Pantaloni, CIC, CISR, lead the seminar. While the on-demand format replicates a live classroom by incorporating instructor audio and video and even allowing for questions, it also enables participants to take the seminar at their own pace wherever, whenever they would like.
The Maryland Compliance Pitfalls and Ethical Responsibilities course is the latest addition to IA&B's growing on-demand library. Other seminars include Understanding the National Flood Insurance Program and Ethical Behavior and E&O.
