LOMA Offers “Accelerator” to New Insurance Professionals
ATLANTA - August 10, 2010 - Entering the world
of life insurance and annuities can sometimes be a daunting
experience. The vast array of complex products, functions, and
terminology can be difficult to understand - let alone master.
Managers and credentialed professionals new to the business need a
proven way to assimilate industry knowledge and quickly become
effective in their new role.
LOMA's Insurance Immersion Program provides industry
professionals with the essential knowledge and tools necessary for
success. It's ideal for managers and experienced/credentialed
professionals (Audit, IT, HR, Training, and Accounting staff) who
need a broad understanding of life insurance and annuities.
Originally launched in 2008, Insurance Immersion is now available
in multiple delivery formats, including Classroom Instruction,
Virtual Learning and on-site, tailored sessions to meet
"Our member companies asked us to develop a program that would
get their employees up to speed on the life insurance and annuities
business as quickly as possible," said Mark Adel, Assistant Vice
President, Education & Training at LOMA. "Working with an
industry steering committee, we developed an instructor-led program
that includes a variety of hands-on activities plus the real-world
knowledge of industry experts."
