About this course

The Fundamentals of Casualty clients programme is the ideal introductory course for junior liability underwriters (or loss adjusters) who wish to gain a comprehensive understanding of General Third-Party Liability (GTPL) and Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance.

We will explore how these are structured in different states and discuss how they fit into the wider casualty business portfolio. 
The course features both direct instructions and group work to realise your own business solutions. It will be delivered virtually, available to you regardless of location. You will have full access to all learning materials and be able to raise issues directly with our instructors.
