The U.S. group, LOMA, and La Escuela de Seguros de Chile, Santiago, Chile, have agreed to work together to expand insurance education programs in Chile and in the rest of Latin America.

The school in Chile plans to add LOMA courses to its degree programs and hopes to offer graduates of its program joint LOMA designations, the organizations say.
