Additional Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I need insurance for the trainers/instructors at my studio, do you offer that as well?
A: Yes! If you own the studio, we have plans that cover you (the studio owner), your direct employees, and all of the clients training in your studio - but it does not cover an independent contractor for their own individual professional liability. Keep in mind that you can also save your trainers/instructors lots of money by referring them to AFS to receive their professional liability insurance as well.

A: Great! Email us and we'll connect you with an SFIC agent to handle all your insurance needs and apply the AFS member discounts.
