Why do you need professional indemnity insurance for your
courses?

Professional Indemnity Insurance is a must-have for aesthetic and cosmetic training courses, along with contingent or full Medical Malpractice insurance for cosmetic trainers. In addition, depending on the unique needs of your business you may also need to get professional indemnity insurance cover. This protects you if something were to go wrong with a treatment based on the advice given to an attendee on the course. Professional indemnity also covers manuals and articles too.

Why do you need public liability insurance for your courses?

As a training course provider, you may work from a variety of locations, but a simple mistake such as spilling a drink on a delegate’s computer could make you liable to pay damages. If you have a permanent establishment and a delegate or member of the public is injured as a result of a negligent act, e.g trips over a faulty or damaged area of flooring, then you may be found liable to pay compensation.

Why do you need group business travel insurance for your courses?

The UK is renowned for having some of the world’s very best aesthetic and cosmetic surgeons, doctors, dentists and nurses. Therefore, it is likely that as a trainer you might be called overseas to demonstrate your skills, knowledge and cutting edge techniques to peers. Regular travel insurance that you purchase online or that is provided through your bank may not cover you for carrying out business. There may be restrictions in geographical limits under the policy and it is unlikely that it will provide cover for things like kidnap and ransom, which can be high risk in certain areas of the world. It is important you have the right cover in place to ensure you are adequately protected.
