|RPA Plus Questionnaire||This short questionnaire can be used to obtain three competitive insurance quotations for some of the elements that aren’t provided by the EFA Risk Protection Arrangement (RPA), e.g. motor vehicles, overseas travel, engineering inspection services and works of art.||Download|
This is the key document that you need to complete as part of your market presentation for the panel of providers. It allows you to describe your academy and its insurance requirements in a format that the insurers will readily understand, so that they can prepare their priced proposals. The last page comprises a model covering letter which is designed to be amended to suit your individual requirements.
CPC will be happy to review your completed Questionnaire before you send it to the providers, if you wish. When you have finalised the questionnaire, you should email it to the providers and allow them at least 4 weeks to respond with their proposals.
