Apogee Insurance: Dedicated to Continuing Education

Dedicated to Continuing Education - Header

For many, September signifies back to school season. From grade-school children to college students, many are getting back to the classrooms, hitting the books, and resuming the task of expanding their knowledge. Here at Apogee Insurance Group, there is no summer break from learning. We are dedicated to continually expanding our knowledge and expertise in the insurance industry to better serve our customers.

Every member of the Apogee team is constantly studying and working towards new designations and licenses. In the past month, we have had two Apogee team members achieve the RPLU designation, numerous P&C licenses, and a Senior Account Manager who traveled to London, England for a very exclusive educational experience.

The RPLU, or Registered Professional Liability Underwriter designation, is the only professional designation exclusively for those in the professional liability industry. To achieve this designation, candidates must complete a rigorous self-study course which includes reading 13 curriculum modules published by the Professional Liability Underwriting Society (PLUS) and passing an exam for each. In the last month, Brian Creech (Apogee's Vice President of Sales) and Chris Bradley (one of our Senior Account Managers) both achieved this difficult and time consuming designation.

In addition to the two RPLU designations, numerous members of the Apogee team have passed the Pennsylvania Property and Casualty Insurance Agent's License exam. Recently, Alicia Maa (a Customer Service Rep) and many of Apogee's college interns passed the exam and earned their P&C licenses. Like most continuing education, this exam is a commitment that takes a lot of time and dedication outside the normal 8-5 work day.

Finally, Management and Employment Practices Liability product expert, Chris Hoxie, was invited to the prestigious Andrew Beazley Broker Academy in London, England. The Academy nominates and accepts specialty brokers from around the globe to participate in a week long accelerated training program in the Lloyd's of London Marketplace.

At Apogee, we strive to set ourselves apart from other insurance wholesalers with our product expertise, service, and focus on our customer. We pride ourselves with dedication to continuing education in the insurance industry and using this knowledge to provide you the very best in placing your professional and management liability.
