Gold Seal unveils new courses and learning software

Mon, 19/12/2016

Gold Seal, the largest independent intermediary focused education provider, has announced a number of new and significantly upgraded courses to provide General Insurance intermediaries with more options for achieving their CPD points.


The courses have been designed to provide a better, more engaging experience for students.


The new courses will be provided in the wake of NIBA closing its doors on education and training this year.


Arthur J. Gallagher (AJG) has been quick to take up this opportunity. Jason Grieve, Head of Learning and Development at AJG stated, “We’ve worked closely with Gold Seal to ensure their new courses are the right fit for our brokers and cover the content we need. As Gold Seal knows the broker space intimately, we know we can be confident the content is all relevant and genuinely valuable for our people. We’re committed to developing our people so it’s a great option for us”.


Sheila Baker, Managing Director Gold Seal added, “We will be able to cover a lot of content that is pertinent to GI intermediaries to help them achieve their CPD hours. Our new software has enabled us to build more interactive and engaging content. The Gold Seal team’s expertise has also meant we’ve been able to streamline some of the duplications that existed with content across different NIBA courses and keep to our mantra of delivering proficiencies actually relevant to brokers in the real world.”


Gold Seal has updated a number of its existing flagship modules including:


·       Insurance Brokers Code of Practice

·       Fundamentals of Insurance

·       Advising for FSR Compliance

·       Insurance contract Act – Overview

·       Underwriting 101


New courses available from the opening of business in January 2017 are:


·       Building Broker/Underwriter Relationships

·       Customer Enquiries and Complaints

·       Introduction to Claims Services

·       Claims Management – Intermediate

·       Preparing New Business Submissions


This represents an approximate 20 hours of CPD.



Plans for the first quarter of 2017 include a further 6 similar modules representing an additional 15 CPD points.


Ms Baker added “We also have several new facilitator–led workshops in the pipeline which will be announced in 2017. These will be available as public workshops or in-house workshops for those who prefer to run their training that way.”
