Continuing Education

THE CE Edge

In addition to obtaining their designations, top insurance brokers regularly participate in continuing education (CE) out of a thirst for knowledge, not just to obtain CE credits.

Gaining extra knowledge increases your professionalism. It helps you get up-to-date on industry information, properly service and educate clients, develop critical thinking and effective decision-making skills, shape your professional ethics, and avoid E&O problems.

The need for continuing education is huge! If you ignore it, you'll give way to competitors who think and act differently.
