Street Level Ethics

  • February 08, 2018
  • 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Tustin Centre - Santa Ana

3-hour CEU | Course Number: 328711

The cornerstone of any successful business is a reputation of integrity and ethical behavior.  This is especially true as agents, brokers, and insurance companies are intimately involved in protecting the assets of the customers they serve.  As a result, members of our profession are held to a high standard of care in dealing with their clients, and they should be.


Participants in the class will explore a number of areas surrounding ethics including:


  • Why ethical behavior is important
  • Consequences of not exhibiting ethical behavior
  • Morality vs. ethics
  • Approaches to ethical decision making
  • The value and implementation of a code of ethics and why it is good business

Attendees will have the chance to participate in a wide variety of group discussions and case studies which will reinforce the role each of them plays in delivering products and services in an ethical manner.  By embracing a “right vs. right” attitude, agents and brokers will come away with a clear understanding of the role ethics plays in the insurance business.
