Best Georgia Approved Insurance Pre-Licensing Course for You?
Looking for the BEST Georgia course available to pass your insurance license exam?
Make sure that you ask yourself a couple of questions before selecting an online Approved Georgia insurance pre-licensing (training) course to pass the Georgia insurance licensing exam (Property & Casualty or Life, Accident & Sickness):
- Should I really be taking an online insurance pre-licensing course?
- How will the course material be taught?
- What have previous students said about the course/instructor(s) (testimonials)?
- How much time, or access, do I have/need to complete the course?
- How does the price compare to other courses?
1. Should I really be taking an online insurance pre-licensing course?
One of the first decisions you need to make is whether you should take a live, in the classroom setting type of course or a state approved Georgia online interactive video led course. Georgia online courses have come a long way over the past couple of years! The question is have your computer skills come up to par? If you are capable of surfing the internet for products, news, videos, etc. then you should have no problem working through an interactive online course. A few advantages of online courses are that they save you time and money when it comes to travel, lodging, taking time off of work etc. Most importantly, online courses give you the ability to complete them at your own pace (24/7) and often allow you to repeat the material if you didn’t completely understand it. On the other hand, if you are a procrastinator type, live courses may be a better option as they force you to learn the material in a classroom setting. Sometimes a live class is the best way to go if you need that extra reinforcement of having an instructor standing in front of you.
2. How will the course material be taught?
Most quality online insurance pre-licensing courses have moved away from the “book only” option and are now taught using many different types of interactive activities (videos, quizzes, final exams, etc.). Most people learn the material best when they are taught using video, then required to test their knowledge using review questions/exams. If test scores are low then reviewing the videos again should help boost comprehension and test scores. Instructors should also be available via e-mail or a phone call. Make sure you are covered in the support area! There’s nothing worse than having a question that your education provider can’t answer!
3. What have previous students said about the course/instructor(s)?
Any quality insurance training course should have a ton of testimonials to back up the course and the instructor(s). A quick Google search for the company’s reviews/testimonials should produce the required results. Keep in mind that there’s always at least one unhappy customer out there and to make sure to read more than one review.
4. How much time, or access, do I have/need to complete the course?
A good insurance course should give you all the access you need. Another advantage to online courses is that they are generally available 24/7, all the time. Most courses come with some type of subscription time but it’s usually always extendable for a fee, maybe even free. Live insurance courses are usually taught over a 3-5 day period just before the Georgia insurance licensing exam is given by the test provider (Pearson VUE, Prometric, PAN, PSI, etc.). Online courses usually give anywhere from 30-90 days, far more than what is actually needed to complete the course. Try to compete the course and test ASAP! There is a lot of information that you will be taught and the longer you wait to test, the greater chance you will have of forgetting it.
5. How does the price compare to other courses?
Compare “apples to apples,” not “apples to oranges.” Most quality Georgia online insurance pre-licensing courses range from $75 – $150, which is actually quite a small amount to pay if you think about the all doors that open up when you have your insurance license! The “buyer beware” topic to cover here is to make sure you know what you are getting when you purchase your course. Is there a physical book with Georgia specific material to take notes down in and to study from? Does the course have a demo that demonstrates to you whether you can stay awake while learning from? Are there tons of review questions to bring the information home and recall-able when taking the real exam? Were there lots of positive testimonials/feedback? Customer service?

Hello how many hours need to committed per day for online course?
Hello Tamika, It really depends on your schedule. We would love to see all of our student spend 5-8 hours a day on the course and take their exam within two weeks but many of our students aren’t able to devote that much time daily. Typically we see students complete the course over a 3-4 week time frame putting a few hours in each night and then a block on the weekend (or whenever they have time). Our hope is that you can complete the 40-50 hours of study time in the shortest time frame possible and then test. The… Read more »
Please may i find out the course/exams i need to write in order to practice/work in a Reinsurance Company in Georgia
Hello Isaac, This really depends on the company you are going to work for but typically I think you are either going to get a Property and Casualty Agent/Producer license or Property and Casualty Counselor/Consultant license (lots of risk management). There are also situations where you might need a Life license. I think it would be best to contact one of these reinsurance companies and ask what their specific requirements are. Good luck!

Hello Anthony, We do have a 20-hour approved GA PC Personal Lines course although we always recommend completing a the full 40-hour approved GA Property and Casualty Course as it includes both Personal and Commercial lines.
