Slide 2: Completing your insurance continuing education courses and receiving the required state credits you need is an important part of keeping your insurance license each year. Therefore, its important which online insurance ce provider you choose and what options they have available to you. A current study from Agent Media showed that 67 percent of people now obtain at least several of their insurance CE credits on the Internet.
Slide 3: Online insurance CE courses should use the multimedia (such as audio, video and animation) ability of the Internet to make the most of the educational experience. The coursework should be created by well known professionals in the industry, should follow the necessary format, and should be accredited in all 50 states. Request a free sample course to be certain that the instructor meets these standards. Also, look at the provider’s class manual to be certain there are adequate choices of courses so that you can obtain all the training that is necessary from one source.
Slide 4: Online learning has made it possible to take your insurance CE courses anywhere and anytime you have a web connection, but sometimes it’s still difficult to find the time to sit down and complete a course in one sitting. Look for an online insurance CE provider that allows you to save your sessions and pick up where you left off, so you can truly work at your own pace.
Slide 5: Just because you are taking a web-based course, you need not be tied to the computer the entire time. Look for a provider that will allow you to print out pages from the course material for later review. Also, your provider should allow you to download the audio from multimedia courses. These audio downloads can be saved like a podcast to your MP3 player for even more flexibility. You can review the information while on the road, exercising, doing housework — anywhere you can use you iPod.
Slide 6: The emphasis of insurance continuing education is to make sure you stay abreast on all the current news in insurance services and regulations. When you receive the best possible training, both you and your clients will reap the rewards. Finding a high quality, accredited online continuing education partner is the first step in maximizing the benefit to your business, and it’s worth the effort to do your homework.
