Level: Intermediate

Why you need this course:
After completing this course, you'll understand the eligibility requirements for businessowners policies (BOPs), the difference in coverages between most BOP policies and other commercial insurance policies, and how BOPs are rated.

Upon successful completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Identify the kinds of businesses that are generally eligible for coverage under a businessowners policy (BOP).
  • Compare the property coverages typically contained in a BOP with the direct damage and business income/extra expense coverages available under an Insurance Services Office (ISO) commercial property coverage part.
  • Describe the property coverages, in addition to those of the ISO commercial property coverage part, that are commonly included in BOPs.
  • Compare the liability coverage typically provided by a BOP with the Commercial General Liability (CGL) Coverage Form.
  • Explain how BOPs are rated and why the approach to rating them is less complicated than rating comparable coverages in a commercial package policy.
