About the AIMU Virtual Classroom
AIMU utilizes the GoToWebinar and GoToTraining platforms, which allow full attendee engagement through Q&A and chat panels, and interactive polling with video engaged for all instructors. Attendees can ask questions in real time and share experience and information with other students in the class. All classes are instructed by subject matter experts who are leaders in their individual fields. Each class is designed with 50-minutes of instruction followed by a 10-minute break, as well as a one-hour lunch break for a full-day class.



This course is intended to provide an in depth look at Protection and Indemnity underwriting and is a complement to the AIMU Introduction to Protection and Indemnity course. Students will go into a detailed review of forms and clauses as well as examine their implications to the risk. It will address, on an advanced level, the rationale for rating. Manuscript policies and the implications of certain additional clauses will also be discussed. Attendees should have previous experience with P&I and be ready to actively participate in discussions regarding the subject and how it relates to their field.
