TRS seminars are open to all insurance company, agency and wholesaler personnel – including those engaged in underwriting, sales and marketing, loss prevention, compliance, risk management, claims and customer service – who have an interest in learning more about the transportation industry, its insurance needs and the regulatory environment in which it exists.

Motor Carrier Insurance Considerations – One 16-hour seminar
To better understand the government involvement in the motor carrier business, the class will include a discussion of registration, proof of financial responsibility and operating rules and regulations. In order to understand the application process, there will be a review of a typical motor carrier’s insurance application, a review of the questions and specific needed answers.
This course will allow a less experienced participant to understand what is required when providing insurance to motor carriers and for more experienced participants, an in-depth look at a motor carrier’s operation and their insurance needs.
After completion of the course and passing the required test, a participant will have met the first requirement toward their TRS Designation.

Advanced Coverage – One 16-hour seminar
The insurance policies that we provide to motor carriers are used in three ways; to meet government financial responsibility requirements, to meet insurance requirements of customers and to respond when a crash happens.
The Advanced Coverage session will look at a crash and what damage can be done to: the public, the unit, the cargo and the driver.
We will look at each area of damage and will determine how the insurance policy(ies) will respond or not respond.
Experienced insurance professionals will take part as the participants review the facts, come up with if there is coverage or not and if coverage then how the policy(ies) respond.
