Risk Management & Insurance

Every day and with every decision, we encounter some type of risk. Insurance is a product that helps us manage our risk. This course starts by covering the basics of risk evaluation and management. It goes on to demonstrate how insurance reduces financial risk by protecting us against unpredictable losses. Insurance companies evaluate the amount of risk an individual poses in order to calculate how much they will charge for coverage.

Two further topics offer comprehensive information about the types of insurance policies available, and how to evaluate your protection to determine the coverage you need. A guide for selecting dependable insurance companies and agents is offered, along with tools for keeping your policies current.

The course continues with a topic that discusses estate plans and how to develop a plan that distributes your property and assets after you pass away, and wraps up with a section on disaster preparedness to prepare you and your family for the challenges of natural disasters.
