Waterloo, ON, Sept. 20, 2019/InsPress/ – For brokers, adjusters and underwriters, understanding the claims process, including the investigation, is crucial to supporting your client after a fire loss.  What better way to learn than in an interactive and hands on seminar that includes a live burn of a living room and a vehicle?

The Insurance Institute of Ontario, Conestoga Chapter is bringing together experts including forensic engineers, fire fighters, lawyers and adjusters for an exciting and informative session at the Waterloo Region Emergency Services Training facility on October 2, 2019 starting at 9:00 am.

Apart from the knowledge imparted by these experts, participants will also witness up close the power of fire and the destructive damage it can do. This full-day seminar will include panel discussions and case studies as well as a step-by-step walk through of all stages of a fire loss claim.

“Brokers need to take care of their customers from quote to claim,” says Heather Graham, Chapter Manager, Insurance Institute of Ontario, Conestoga Chapter.  “This session will give participants a better understanding of what the adjuster’s role is and what the forensic engineers do, so when their customer calls with questions they can provide knowledgeable answers.”

Registration is now open for this “Burn and Learn” event.  Cost is $150 for graduate members and $160 for members.  This session will be accredited for RIBO and Alberta CE Credits.  For more information and to register, visit the Insurance Institute Seminars page here.
