Case Studies

Case studies are an optional part of this course. However some insurance companies now specify that you need a case study element to say you are trained or experienced in a specific area. I would therefore strongly suggest that you do complete the case studies which can be emailed to me at any point after the course. A further certificate will then be issued, at no extra cost, to say the case study element has been completed.
