Before TesTeachers became a nationally-recognized insurance and securities online pre-licensing provider, we started in 1976 as a school in Portland, Oregon, the first state in the country that required insurance producers to complete prerequisite education. Settling later in Scottsdale, Arizona, and now celebrating our 40th year of business, we are proud to have grown into an industry-leading online school too, allowing us to serve students’ needs all across the country. In 2016, our extensive catalog of insurance and securities coursework is now available online, however we recognize that everyone has their own preferred, individual learning style. Students still benefit from in-person instruction, and we are proud to continue providing individualized, personalized live lecture coursework in select locations across the country.
Bringing over four decades of excellence to the trade, TesTeachers hosts live lecture courses at our home office in Scottsdale, Arizona in Lakewood, Colorado, and in multiple locations in Illinois for insurance students who are required to attend live lecture courses. Over the course of TesTeachers’ growth, the feedback we have received from students has helped shape and refine our live lecture coursework to suit everyone’s study needs, and we are continually developing ways to enhance our classes. We offer small-setting live classes for both insurance and securities that offer students several benefits in helping them pass their exams.
Live School Lectures:
- Small setting classrooms
- Professionally trained and certified instructors
- Individualized Q&A sessions on the most difficult topics in each course
- Series 6, 63, and 65 live lecture instruction (varies by state)
- Customizable study packages
- Designed to work in tandem with our online coursework
- Approved pre-licensing provider in Illinois (live lecture required)
- Live Lecture continuing education courses offered
