Tallahassee, FL – February 4, 2016 — The insurance marketplace is ever changing and continued training is the rule of the day. The high cost of off-site training can be prohibitive for a lot of agencies. Today, that all changes thanks to a new partnership between Insurance Journal’s Academy of Insurance and the Professional Insurance Agents of Florida (PIA of Florida).
“We’re excited to be adding this important tool to our benefits as we continue to strive for excellence in our industry,” says Corey Mathews, CEO of PIA of Florida.
Now all insurance agencies, agents, CSRs and office support staff can take courses taught by more than 60 expert instructors from the Academy of Insurance directly from their desk or mobile device. The Academy offers both live and on-demand webinars covering a wide range of property and casualty topics with new courses added monthly.
No longer will employees be required to travel to seminars to ensure they have the knowledge needed to keep their firm safe. Plus, the Academy of Insurance will help train the top talent already hired.
“We’re passionate about providing high-quality education and to be partnering with the PIA of Florida community,” says Romeo Valdez, Sales Manager for the Academy. “In our 5 year history, we’ve had a 97% satisfaction rate from our customers, which include carriers, agents, and service providers.”
The Academy’s courses will be offered at special savings to PIA of Florida members by visiting the education section of www.piafl.org.
