If you were unable to join us on our recent webinar discussing Sovos Education Services and all the resources we offer, don’t worry.  Read on to find out what you missed.

Booke Seminars is now Sovos Education

Many of you are likely familiar with Booke Seminars – the longstanding provider of insurance accounting education. Booke has been a trusted partner in the insurance industry for almost 60 years when it comes to continuing education and statutory compliance software. But did you know that Booke has been undergoing a transformation during the past two and a half years? Booke Seminars is now Sovos Education after an acquisition that took place back in February 2020.

The importance of education

More than just our name changed over the course of the pandemic. Companies work differently, with many people still utilizing remote or work-from-home spaces. We communicate differently with video calling and a greater reliance on chat apps and email. This also means that the way we learn and the way we teach has had to adapt. Not just the delivery of continuing education, but any on-the-job skills training starting with the onboarding of new employees. As employees interact less frequently simply because of geographic distances, the reality that decisions will be made without sufficient vetting will lead to a greater likelihood of error and misinformation. Unless, of course, those employees participate in training on a regular cadence, which can minimize the risk of such error.

Regular training is key, especially in niche industries like insurance accounting or unclaimed property, where specialization and expertise are hard to come by. Sovos Education has an entire catalog of courses to address various topics in that regard, such as Insurance Accounting and Financial Reporting and Federal Income Taxation of Insurance Companies. Continuous quality education aims to advance the knowledge of the participant with comprehensive examples and interactivity that we have built into our webinars and seminars. Knowledgeable employees are empowered with tools and decision-making skills to help them to grow and thrive in their careers.

Why Sovos Education?

By attending our courses, you’ll be immersed in the details of whichever content area you have chosen. For instructional purposes, we have developed comprehensive model insurance companies that we leverage as teaching aids in nearly every single one of our insurance specific classes. You will also receive insurance-focused textbooks as an accompaniment to our detailed presentations.

Sovos Education maintains the Annual Statement Handbook that was the very first Booke deliverable back in the early 1960s – a resource that is revised in real time as statutory accounting and reporting changes are adopted. Our handbooks serve as the “Help Manual” for Sovos’ statutory compliance software and offer valuable insights into the preparation of those complex regulatory documents.

Though our name may be different, the instructors and the content are still those that you have come to know and respect in the industry. Our team of highly experienced instructors has well over 200 years of combined industry experience. Connect with us to learn more about our current catalog and future partnering opportunities. Find us online at Until then, we look forward to seeing you in class very soon.
