This course was definitely designed with the needs of the busy person in mind! I was able to earn the credits necessary for my license renewal on my own time, without the stress of making it to a class on time. I will definitely use HP! again in the future and will recommend it to my fellow co-workers!

- Duties and cooperation of insured - a section of the policy that lists the varied duties and necessary cooperation of the insured when faced with a claim an/or incident. It indicates the length of time advisable in which to notify the insurer after a claim is made and the necessary cooperation, e.g., obtaining and giving evidence, attending hearings and trials, helping to obtain the assistance and attendance of witnesses, and helping in the enforcement of any contribution from others (if any) who share some of the responsibility for the incident (called "right of contribution") or from some other person who is totally responsible for the incident (called "right to demnification").

The requirement for cancellation is a written notice at least 10 days before cancellation for premium non-payment and at least 30 days before cancellation for any other reason."
