Surety-Specific Education

September 19, 2022

Finding surety-specific educational resources can be a challenge. To satisfy that need, we created a program of educational opportunities under the umbrella of Merchants University. The program is an extension of one of our core values, to develop potential through learning, involvement, and the pursuit of opportunities, and Merchants U does just that, allowing us to provide surety-specific education for our valued partners.

Merchants U Online

Our two most recent continuing education webinars, an online component of  Merchants U, showed just how large an appetite there is for this content, with just under one thousand participants, hailing from 46 states. One webinar focused on Commercial surety producers; exploring bond types, common language on bond forms, underwriting criteria, and the claims process. The other focused on Contract producers, providing a comprehensive introduction to the topic of surety. Both received extremely high satisfaction ratings, and generated lots of positive feedback. 


"I like to see that you invest in the education of the Producers to make sure they are at the top of their game. I will share this with our new hires coming later this month to ease them into the surety world." 

"This was a very insightful presentation! Always appreciate the helpful bonding information and the fact that CE credits are given is a major plus!" 

If you're looking for ways to deepen your knowledge of the surety industry, consider the opportunities available through Merchants University.
