Crawford & Company: Crawford & Company® Australia Launches e-learning Tool to Promote Financial Risks Expertise

Crawford&Company® Australia Launches e-learning Tool to Promote Financial
Risks Expertise
New Educational Tools Available for Insurers and Brokers
SYDNEY (Oct. 12, 2015)
- Crawford&Company® Australia is aiming to improve insurers and brokers'
knowledge of financial risks claims with a new dedicated training website and
toolkit, including a reserve calculator.

Developed by Crawford® Forensic Accounting Services (CFAS), the new tools are
intended for industry professionals who are looking to develop their
knowledge of business interruption, and other financial risk topics and are
available for individual and corporate use.

Martin Miller, national Crawford Forensic Accounting Services manager, said:
"We are committed to develop the knowledge base of those who are interested
in financial risks claims and are aware that thus far, many brokers and
insurers have struggled to enhance their knowledge of this specialised skill.

"Providing correct reserve calculations can be critical, but without proper
training and experience, it is all too easy to fail to identify major claims
at an early stage and make errors when calculating losses. We have developed
e-learning tools and created the reserve calculator to support rising stars
of the industry as well as help long-term workers in need of a refresher," he
said.

The available modules include those relating to business interruption's
general principles, such as basic concepts and terminology, determining
cost-of-working increases, and savings. Each course is approximately an hour
in duration and includes a competency test at the end. All courses are also
eligible for continuing professional development points.

CFAS' ability to offer e-learning is a reflection of its current growth, as
the team continues to add new members with deep experience. Crawford recently
appointed Scott Bushell as CFAS regional manager, New South Wales&South
Australia. He brings 20 years' experience specialising in business
interruption claims and litigation support.

The new training site can be accessed
at:https://www.cfas.com.au/support/training-courses/. Individuals or groups
can use elements of the CFAS toolkit, including reserve calculator and
document request list, by applying to be a member
via:https://www.cfas.com.au/.
