Contractual Risk Transfer Session Two

3/27/24 at 12:30 PM to 3/27/24 at 2:30 PM

Contractual risk transfer is a legally binding way to transfer risk to the party that may be in the best position to control the risks related to the service to be provided. Contractual risk transfer occurs when the language in a non-insurance agreement excuses one party from financial or legal responsibility associated with specific actions, inactions, injuries, or damages. When effectively applied, contractual risk transfer can save your agency thousands – or even millions – of dollars in the event of a claim.

This training will review contractual risk transfer fundamentals, including:

  • Key elements of risk transfer
  • Indemnity and Insurance clauses
  • Determining appropriate insurance limits
  • Certificates and endorsements
  • Waivers of subrogation
  • Case studies

Time & Date:

The training will be held via webinar. Each training session will be two hours long and have a question/answer session at the end of the presentation. To register, click the date you would like to attend below:
