AVAILABLE MARINE SEMINARS:
Marine Insurance Services currently has a Marine Seminar Series that may interest some of your staff, available right at your office!  We have four separate Marine Seminar modules, each 1 hours in length.   The seminars cover a wide range of marine insurance topics, of interest to insurance professionals--including brokers and agents, adjusters, underwriters, and management staff.  For these seminars we will need access to your boardroom, a speaker's podium (if available) and an overhead (transparencies) projector.  Each module includes a set of extensive hand-out materials for each participant.

RIBO CREDITS:
Each participant will receive 1.5 RIBO technical credits per seminar module (6 credits for all 4 modules), and a certificate for the Registered Insurance Brokers of Ontario Continuing Education Program.  These credits may be used by insurance brokers to meet their minimum yearly requirements.  Each seminar module can also be used for points toward an Insurance Institute of Canada Continuing Professional Development (CPD) certificate.

COST:
The cost of these seminars will vary based on location.  The following is a list of prices for seminars in the Toronto area.  Please contact us for more information regarding costs of a seminar at your office.
