“Commercial Insurance Fundamentals” is a sequenced curriculum encompassing four modules and fifteen (15) hours of online, self-paced learning. The courses contain all of the essential information needed for an introduction to the insurance industry and core commercial coverages, and can be taken either at home, the office, or on the road.  This curriculum will be supplemented by other online curricula in the near future.

“The Commercial Insurance Fundamentals Professional Certificate Program delivers excellent Insurance Industry Overview and core Coverage knowledge in a self-paced online format at an effective cost. The attraction of a Professional Certificate from St. John’s University School of Risk Management is very compelling,” notes Bill Harwood, NLP Co-Founder.

Commercial Insurance Fundamentals is the initial offering to be launched as an Online Professional Certificate format – to be followed by other Certificate programs during 2019. Our constituency needs flexible, blended and self-paced learning powered by St. John’s excellent insurance industry expertise. These Professional Certificate Programs will meet those important needs”.
