Designed by experienced agents for the next generation of great agents.

The Illinois Insurance Pre-Licensing program is top-notch and will blow away the competition. Designed by industry experts, one of whom played a role in developing the licensing exam, this program will give you, or your new hire, valuable insights into the industry. It’s not just about being able to pass the test. It’s about retaining the information and building the foundation they need to have a successful career. You will see a difference in taking our sessions rather than the competition.
