The modern-day broker needs to have a range of different skills and qualities to succeed, with a reputation built on the excellence of services and the qualifications you possess. We all understand that the insurance industry requires a lot of dedication, which unfortunately, doesn’t leave much time for CPD learning.
However, there is a way that you can break traditional, lengthier CPD modules into smaller, more manageable chunks. At Source Insurance, many concise and relevant courses have been moulded to suit brokers and their busy present-day schedules.
As all brokers will be aware, you need to complete 35 hours of compulsory CPD every year to be qualified, with at least 21 hours needed to be structured CPD. Because of this, the struggle of balancing business with education can affect the workload of a broker. Although, it’s important to stress the significance of CPD learning and how it can affect your business positively.
Learning Will Boost Standing with Clients
Of course, it’s not unfair to say that brokers will find it much harder to find success with their clients without the relevant education. Having the proper knowledge and understanding of all things insurance will give you the tools to become a better broker. Your clients will notice the difference, solidifying your relationship as a result.
Micro-Courses – Learning Made Manageable
When tackling large bulks of learning, you might find it stressful to expand your knowledge for hours at a time whilst working with your clients. Micro-courses will dissolve your courses into more concise, reduced resources, helping you manage your time and priorities.
What is a micro-course? Well, these are resources that have been split into smaller modules, helping you to manage larger learning in smaller amounts of time. For example, splitting an hour-long module into four modules spanning 15 minutes each can be easier to learn, keeping your day coordinated and organised.
Traditional, more lengthy modules will take up large portions of a broker’s day, a luxury many people can’t afford in the current climate. So, micro-courses are the perfect way to turn a mountain into a few small molehills, making your task a lot easier.
Alternative Styles of Learning
There are lots of different methods for education, including visual, kinaesthetic, and auditory learning. These can vary from person to person, meaning that there should be sufficient ways to expand your knowledge. Some people prefer to learn by watching, so videos will be best-suited, whereas others might prefer to use their hands, pointing them towards micro-courses.
Because of this, Source has alternative resources for your benefit, including eBooks, webinars, micro-courses, articles, and LearningLab Lite videos. Everyone has the right to learn using their own preferred method, with many of these modules helping to achieve this goal. For more, have a browse here – https://www.thesource.co.uk/learninglab/.
Education for All!
Often overlooked, clients should also develop their own education. By having both parties well-informed about the insurance industry, you can expect the interactions between broker and customer to be smoother, with less objections throughout the process. Clients will understand the role of the broker and the journey to the ideal policy. This will make things smoother and seamless as your client searches for their perfect insurance policy.
As well as the above-mentioned learning assets, Source Insurance has valuable client-facing resources to allow your customers to learn, giving them more confidence and understanding along their insurance quotation journey.
