What you will learn:
On June 11, 2007, the Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation issued bulletin 2007-07-INS for the purpose of advising insurers and Michigan resident insurance producers of training requirements for selling federally-backed flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The bulletin in part states, “An insurance producer who sells flood insurance may satisfy the minimum training and education requirements of the Act by completing a course related to the NFIP. Failure to comply with the training and education requirements will jeopardize an insurance producer’s authority to write insurance through the NFIP.”
The full text of the commissioner’s bulletin can be found at: ww.michigan.gov/cis by clicking on the link to Financial and Insurance Regulation and then “Bulletins.” This seminar provides a series of building blocks which address not only the most basic flood insurance issues, but some more advanced components as well. At the conclusion of this seminar, attendees with little or no prior NFIP experience will understand how to build a flood insurance policy from the ground up. Experienced attendees will develop an even better understanding of the Standard Flood Insurance Policy’s major coverage areas, FEMA’s elevation certificate, Increased Cost of Compliance coverage, and more.
