Our lives and the way we work have dramatically changed over the past 6 months and like all of you, MCIEF has had to adapt to the way we present our educational offerings. We have increased our online offerings and our conference this year will be virtual in November. Many of our members have taken advantage of these opportunities and the response has been so good we are extending our discount for the TruckingU program until 12/31/20.

We are living in unprecedented times as so much has changed in our daily lives. But some things have remained constant: we are watching trucking shine like heroes as they keep America going by delivering much needed medical supplies, food and necessities. A true testament to America moves in trucks! We should all be proud of our clients as they shine in a dark hour of our history.

As we settle into this new way of life with working from home and social distancing, we could all use some worthwhile distractions to keep us focused on the future. Now is the perfect time to take advantage of time spent at home to invest in your education and hone your career for future advancement. TruckingU provides you the training you need to best understand trucking clients’ insurance needs.

ADVANCED COVERAGE

CLASSROOM (16 HOURS – CE)
Advanced Level – understanding  how a policy responds at claim time

Students inside the advance coverage class

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 course 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 join the discussion as the participants review claim scenarios: the facts, the policies that apply and how coverage will respond. No exam is required with this course.
