Course Description for Insurance 
Insurance is a contractual agreement between an individual “the policyholder” and an Insurance company. This contract provides that the Insurance company will cover some portion of a policyholder’s loss as long as the policyholder meets certain conditions embedded in the Insurance contract.

The policyholder pays an Insurance premium to obtain Insurance coverage. If the policyholder experiences a loss, such as a car accident or a house fire, the policyholder files a claim for reimbursement with the Insurance company. The policyholder will pay a deductible to cover part of the loss, and the Insurance company will pay the rest…..
