A lesson in protection

As a specialist, your knowledge is your power. Your clients want to know what you know.

But your knowledge can also cost you dear. Like if someone claims you didn’t pass it on correctly and they lost out as a result.

Trainers’ insurance, coaches’ insurance and instructors’ insurance provides textbook solutions if you’re accused of substandard work or causing accidental damage.

What insurance do trainers, coaches & instructors need?

Here are the essentials for trainers’ insurance, coaches’ insurance and instructors’ insurance:

Professional indemnity insurance

When someone points a finger in your direction claiming you didn’t do your job properly, professional indemnity insurance has your back.

Say there’s an accusation you delivered poor IT training and left a client at the mercy of hackers. Or your life coaching steered someone in the wrong direction.

If there’s a claim against you, professional indemnity insurance pays for a legal expert to defend you, and covers any court costs and compensation.

Public liability insurance

This is a must whether you do your job in your own space or in someone else’s. Because accidents happen no matter where, and people and things get hurt.

Perhaps you spill a jug of water over a client’s fancy (and pricey) presentation tech. Or someone you’re instructing trips over your laptop cable and takes an ill-fated tumble.

A claim for compensation can prove a lesson in financial ruin. But public liability insurance picks up the tab for damages and covers legal costs too.

How much insurance do trainers, coaches & instructors need?

Deciding what level of insurance to get with no previous experience of what a claim involves can be difficult.

One thing you don’t want to do, however, is to find out the hard way just how much a claim can set you back. That means it pays to do your sums in advance.

Think about the worst professional mistake you could make and how much that could cost your client. Then think about someone being badly injured in a mishap linked to your work.

So far, so expensive in terms of potential compensation. Then add in the cost of hiring a solicitor as well as court costs, and you’ve got a hefty bill to pay. Not forgetting you have to find the time to deal with it all.

Having too much insurance never hurt anyone. Having too little did. So, it makes sense to buy as much cover as you can afford.

What kind of insurance do trainers, coaches & instructors need?

If you don’t work alone but employ others to spread their wisdom alongside yours, then you need employers’ liability insurance. It’s a legal obligation if you employ staff.

Trainers, coaches and instructors who work from a space they either rent or own may keep some costly kit there. But computers, whiteboards, sound systems and other stuff can get damaged or go missing.

Contents insurance pays for it to be repaired or replaced as new, and covers costs if you have to hire replacements in the meantime. Plus, there’s portable equipment insurance for all the stuff you take around with you, like laptops and phones.

Business interruption insurance kicks into action if you’re unable to work from your usual workplace – because of a fire or flood, for example. It pays for you to set up temporarily elsewhere and covers lost revenue.
