PPL Training

We offer a variety of training methods to support you - based either in classrooms or online. All training is tailored to your role i.e. a professional trainer, broker or underwriter.

Classroom User training options

Classroom user courses are tailored to both brokers and underwriters and are designed to enable you to use the system competently, support your colleagues, or to train others. You learn how to quote, negotiate, bind and endorse business digitally using the PPL electronic placing platform. The training sessions will be as interactive as possible with the delegates being given typical ‘real-life’ scenarios for them to undertake within the Quote; Firm Order and Endorsement phases.

Online training - Learning Management System (LMS)

We provide an online learning portal called LMS  to all users of the platform that have been onboarded.

The LMS provides the following benefits:

  • Organisations can measure the online learning that their internal teams have undertaken.
  • Organisations can monitor progress of their internal teams and track passed/failed results of the consolidation tests to confirm their level of understanding.
  • Reports at an organisation level can be created on the LMS and exported to Excel or PDF output.
  • Learners have the flexibility to undertake the training at their own desks.
  • The training is always available so learners can undertake the training when it suits them and refresh their knowledge at any time.
  • The training modules are tailored for the learner based on their role.
  • Visual indicators instantly show the learner the progress of their own learning.
