New Edition of LOMA Underwriting Text Available in Electronic and Printed Formats
ATLANTA, Georgia - January 12, 2007-LOMA has
released a new edition of Life and Health Insurance Underwriting.
The revised textbook, which is also available to LOMA students for
the first time in downloadable PDF format, introduces risk
assessment principles applied to underwriting individual and group
life and health insurance and provides a thorough introduction to
underwriting terminology and concepts. The text is assigned reading
for LOMA's underwriting course, UND 386.
"Making this new text available as a download in conjunction
with a student's examination enrollment gives LOMA's participants
worldwide instant access to the study materials when they enroll
for the underwriting exam," said Kathy Milligan, FLMI, ACS, ALHC,
vice president of LOMA's education and training division. "Giving
participants the ability to store the text electronically and to
print their own study materials as needed means these busy
professionals have yet another option for career development to
enhance their job performance and improve company operations.
However, those who prefer to study from a traditional printed and
bound text still have the option of purchasing one."
