A.M. BestTV: The Institutes Reach Out to New Insurance Education Markets

Business Wire


In this episode of A.M.BestTV, The Institutes, known for their Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters (CPCU) certification and other programs, are discovering a new outlet for their insurance-specific training: international technology, consulting and service companies. Cell centers, software development houses and outsourcing businesses are leveraging the training to better compete for contracts and assignments from insurers in the United States and elsewhere.

Peter Miller, president and CEO of The Institutes stated, “As the insurance industry becomes more deregulated as well as more global, we at The Institutes are expanding our reach by the usage of online learning. …Millennials want employment that allows them to help people and solve problems; The Institutes allows them to achieve these goals.”
