First off, welcome to our new site and new blog! We are very excited to have this blog available as a part of our brand new site. In case this is your first visit to our site, we thought this post would be a good introduction to who we are and what our company philosophy is. Our company has been training individuals to pass insurance and securities licensing exams for almost 40 years now.
It was the early 70’s in Portland, Oregon when the state passed a law requiring those who wanted to obtain an insurance license to complete a live lecture pre-license training course. Oregon just happened to be one of the first states in the nation to pass an insurance pre-license education requirement. At the time there were not really any schools available for future insurance agents to take the required courses. Thus, our company was formed.
Since the founding of our company we have operated live schools in Oregon, Washington, California, Hawaii, Arizona, Texas, Colorado and Minnesota and have sold our hard copy study products throughout the US since the late 90’s. We currently operate the largest live lecture insurance and securities schools in Arizona and Colorado.
So, how does this all tie together? Beginning in 2006 we converted all our content to also be available online in lecture flash video format. Around the same time we re-branded our company as TesTeachers and began to market our online video lecture courses throughout the nation. As the first school ever to offer a true replication of a live lecture class online, the use of our online training programs has grown tremendously.
We are here to teach you what you need to know to pass your licensing exam, period! We are not here to train you how to sell insurance or securities products, or provide you education about the history of the insurance or securities industry. You want to pass the test, and we understand if you don’t we are not doing our job. In order to pass your exam, you must understand the concepts behind the questions. Memorizing questions and answers is not enough, in fact it is a sure fire way to fail your exam!
For this reason we have instructors available by e-mail to help you further comprehend anything in case you get stuck. Why do we do this? Because we want you to pass your exam on your first attempt.
Each course also includes our video lecture sessions in downloadable and streaming format. The audio from these sessions is also provided in mp3 format. No other vendor anywhere offers these important study tools.
Well, that is the long and short of it. We look forward to a bright future as we continue to increase the effectiveness of our programs any way we can. We hope we have the opportunity to assist you in passing your exam on your first attempt. Thank you for taking the time to read this post, and if you are are student, get back to your studies, you have work to do!
