Help with Professional Indemnity insurance please

  1. G'Day all,

    Does anyone know anything about PI insurance?

    I've been teaching for about 3-4 years for wages so I've never had to worry about having it.

    I'm a First Aid instructor and have been making some enquiries about obtaining a license from a Uni to teach their brand of First Aid, I thought that if I'm teaching under their license I would be covered by theirs.
    Am I correct in thinking this or not?

    The Uni says that if I'm teaching for them ie teaching a course that they themselves have booked, then I am covered but if I teach a course that is for the general public that I have organised myself then I am not, even if I use the Uni's materials.

    Any ideas?
    Cheers :?
  2. The Uni is only minimisnig it's risk - it has no responsibility to cover contractors, which is what you would seem to be when doing your own course.

    I deal with a great Broker in Melbourne (Upwey) - Insurance Made Easy 1800 641 260. I deal with Brian

    I know James well who has a share in the business - so ask for him if Brian is not there.

    I've used them for about five years for all my insurance including PI.

    Cheers Alex
  3. If you are a member of a professional association or a union check with them.

    Some have an automatic cover for a certain amount, others have access to discounted insurance.
  4. +1 to the above. Lots of brokers will do PI, and its not that expensive.

    Love the tag line incidently. Reminds me of my old one... non carabondum illigitimi..... :cool:
  5. Thanks TC and Tony. I haven't had a chance to contact them yet but hopefully it will be better than the quote that arrived in the mail today.......$2500 for $5mil cover.
    I new it would be expensive but didn't quite figure on that.
  6. Thanks Tramp, but shouldn't your tag line have been Illegitimi non carborundum?

    I love Google :)
