Pre-Licensing Online Self-Study Courses
Insurance is a thriving industry right now, which means that there is a lot of opportunity for professionals who want to work in insurance. But most insurance professionals need to have a qualifying license before they can get to work.
If you’re looking to get your insurance license, you’re in the right place.
Pre-licensing education is one of the best ways to pass your licensing exam and get your license as quickly as possible. You'll learn everything you need to succeed as an insurance professional and the tools to explore a wide variety of careers in the insurance industry.
Let’s take a closer look at pre-licensing online self-study courses.
Advantages to Getting Your Insurance License
Getting an insurance license is required for a lot of jobs in the insurance industry. Even if being licensed isn’t required by your chosen profession, it can still be a big advantage and may help you move up in your company and field.
One of the biggest reasons to get your insurance license right now is that the insurance industry is growing fast, and insurance professionals are in demand. That’s because there are more types of insurance available today than ever before. Just as importantly, insurance companies are offering more types of coverage and need to make sure they are compliant with all local rules and regulations in the industry.
The combination of insurance being a more popular and diverse product than ever, and being a growing industry means that qualified insurance professionals are in demand right now. Plus, the growing industry gives insurance professionals a lot of job security since there are probably going to be even more jobs in the future.
Getting your license now and doing all required continuing education to keep that license, puts you in a good position for future job needs.
What To Expect From Your Pre-Licensing Self-Study Courses
Self-studying courses are a little different from traditional courses or webinars. These courses are entirely self-directed, which means you must be good at motivating yourself to keep working to get them done in time for your exams.
But self-study courses can be a good option for people who don't learn well in classrooms or group settings. Plus, being self-guided means you can take everything at your own pace, whether that’s faster or slower than average is entirely up to you.
For instance, if you need to go over one chapter more than once, you can. If one chapter is particularly easy and makes a lot of sense to you, you can go a little faster and still get the same quality education.
However, what you get from a self-study course is also entirely up to you. If you don’t pay much attention to the content, you won’t get as much out of the course. Or you could be highly invested and do a lot of engaged learning and maybe get more from your self-study.
Knowing what kind of learner you are is really important if you’re considering a self-study course.
With your self-study online pre-licensing course you’ll get 60-day access to your online course. Each course is tailored to the licensing test you’ll be taking to help make sure you’re prepared for the kind of tests you’re going to take and the requirements of that test.
Specific requirements do vary by state, so it’s important to sign up for a self-guided online course designed for insurance professionals in your state.
With the online course, you'll have an e-book version of the textbook, chapter modules and quizzes, electronic flashcards to help study, and practice exams to show when you’re ready for your licensing test.
That’s a complete package to help you learn, but you’ll need to be good at motivating yourself to do it.
Pros and Cons of Self-Study Pre-Licensing Online Courses
Pro: Take your time with all course material, fast or slow. The main advantage of self-study is that you can truly go at your own pace. Take the time you need to feel confident in your knowledge before moving on to the next chapter or move quickly when concepts make a lot of sense.
Con: No class or instructor to keep you on track. It can be easy to fall behind or even have to renew your access to an online course if you aren’t moving through the material quickly enough. One of the problems with self-study is that you are the only one giving yourself deadlines, and it can be challenging to hold yourself to those deadlines.
Pro: Additional study materials help with learning retention. Our self-study courses come with flashcards, chapter quizzes, and other tools to help you make sure you’re really learning what you think you’re learning. Plus, getting more practice with the material is a good way to make sure you remember what you learned when you sit down to take the test.
Online Course Alternatives
If you aren't sure whether self-study courses are right for you, here are a couple of other course options.
Webinars: Webinars are the best of both worlds. You’ll be able to learn from the comfort of your own home, but with the support of guided instruction from an experienced teacher. Feel free to ask questions and clarify anything that doesn’t make sense in class and use the additional provided study materials to make sure you’re ready for your exam.
Classroom Courses: Taking an in-person class might not be as comfortable as learning at home, but it can be a good option for some. Learn from an instructor in a classroom setting, and then finish studying at home with the included online materials to get ready for your test.
