Level II

SL-SS-LevelII.jpgLevel II is intended for the bond producer/underwriter/account manager with one to six years of experience. The curriculum includes intensive training in: contractor profiling, detailed financial analysis, concepts and effective practices of account activation and service, claims handling, industry marketplace changes, and ethics. The week-long school emphasizes the relationship between the producer, surety, and contractor, techniques for gathering information about the contractor and preparation of the case submission to the surety. The curriculum culminates in a real-time, interactive case presentation, causing students to draw on concepts, applications, and methodologies presented during the entire program.

This course is rated as "intermediate." It is intended for the student who has a basic knowledge of the subject matter or who has limited experience with the subject matter.

Please note: Registration is not considered complete until the fee is paid and the student information survey is complete. This short survey is designed to gauge each participant’s level of surety knowledge and help our Surety School faculty tailor each class to the participants. It is not a test. It will be emailed to each registrant to complete in November 2022.

All cancellations must be sent in writing to NASBP at prodev@nasbp.org. For a full refund, written cancellation must be received 30 calendar days prior to the start of the event. Cancellations received between 15 - 29 days prior to the event are eligible for a 50% refund. Cancellations received in less than 15 calendar days prior to the event are not eligible for refunds. All refunds will be charged a 5% processing fee.

NASBP acknowledges that travel plans and airline restrictions are uncertain, and so we are temporarily modifying the above cancellation policy to allow for full refunds for any students who are not able to attend the Surety School due to COVID-19 related issues. If you have been recommended to self-quarantine, have had recent contact with an ill person, or are feeling ill yourself, NASBP will issue a full refund (minus the 5% processing fee).


NASBP’s number one priority is the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff! With that in mind, we are drafting the 2023 Winter School Readiness Plan (coming December 2022) in accordance with CDC Guidelines and the current state and local health and safety protocols. All students and faculty must sign the NASBP COVID19 Waiver before arriving at the school.  This waiver was a required part of the NASBP online registration process and your registration is considered as an acceptance of this agreement.
