The education you need for better conversations

Resources to help you navigate through the changes to Income Protection

Our experts are here to help you evolve your Income Protection approach with training and resources

The TAL Risk Academy team have been focused on bringing you the education and support resources you need to better understand and navigate through the new world of Income Protection with confidence . Our team of educators have developed new courses to equip you with constructive, practical ways to respond to the Income Protection changes, so your business can tailor your advice in response .

And, as always, our courses are completely product-agnostic: our webinars won't go into the details of  the TAL product options, because we know that what you need right now is a better understanding of what the changes mean for your clients. Because a better understanding means you’ll be able to provide even better advice.

Be better prepared with our new Income Protection courses:

Understanding the I in IP

Best Interest Balancing Act
1 HOUR ON-DEMAND
We know advice is a delicate balancing act between the advice (including product) and cost. In this course, we’ll consider that balancing act using a qualitative approach, and go back to best interest basics with a focus on providing appropriate rather than best product advice.
