The Hartford School Of Insurance Launches Small Commercial School

The Hartford School of Insurance has introduced a small commercial training program to help new agency professionals gain technical insurance and sales knowledge to address the unique needs of a small business owner.

“Small business is big business - there are about 28 million small businesses in the United States, 1” said Rick Newell, vice president and head of Small Commercial sales at The Hartford. “The Hartford School of Insurance is helping to position and differentiate agents in the small business arena by equipping them with the insight and skill set needed to engage with small businesses and serve them effectively.”

Through a combination of self-paced and classroom learning, the Small Commercial School will provide agents a thorough review of a business owners policy, auto and workers’ compensation policies, as well as demonstrate how to effectively position the best products and services for their small business clients. Participants will develop an understanding of the unique needs of small business owners throughout the business lifecycle, whether an emerging business, growing company or a company in transition.

“The Hartford School of Insurance has been educating agents through cost-effective training on a wide variety of insurance topics for more than 15 years and agents expressed a need for a curriculum focused on small business,” said Marie Alvarado, assistant vice president of agent education and consulting, and head of The Hartford School of Insurance. “Small businesses have been a focus for The Hartford for 30 years and we are excited to offer agents the tools they need to fully understand the mindset of small business owners and to help position them for success in this market.”

Agents who participate in this program may be eligible for Continuing Education (CE) credit hours and the Small Business Coverage Specialist (SBCS) Designation. For more information about the Small Commercial School and other training offered by The Hartford School of Insurance, visit www.hartfordschoolofinsurance.com.
