Broker-only insurer MMA Insurance, has launched a free product training course for commercial property packages.

The new course complements the company's existing training programme for brokers, which already covers motor trade, construction, travel and home insurance.

The insurer is also offering a basic marketing course to equip brokers and intermediaries with a range of low-cost techniques to aid new business generation.

Phillip Byrne, MMA's training co-ordinator comments on the training initiative. “Commercial business is important because it is still very much the preserve of the broker.

“As a broker-only insurer it is therefore important to us as well and this is why we are investing in product training in this area,” he said.

MMA is currently running a course every week from its offices in Reading.
