Your insurance underwriter establishes the requirements for initial/recurrent training for your aircraft. In exercising that authority they review the training provider's syllabi, study materials, type experience and professional reputation before they accept a trainer; a process that can take several months.
Additionally, underwriters may establish program limitations on different make/model aircraft. It's important an owner not assume that an endorsement from a self-proclaimed provider satisfies the insurance requirements for your policy. In order to ensure acceptance it's best to obtain a Certificate of Insurance from your broker/underwriter that names your training provider and thereby assures their acceptance and your protection.
