BEST TEXAS INSURANCE PRE-LICENSING COURSE FOR YOU?

Modern graphic interface showing smart information and digital lifestyle in application software

Make sure that you ask yourself a few questions before selecting an online insurance pre-licensing course in Texas to pass the state insurance licensing exam (General Lines Property & Casualty or General Lines Life, Accident & Health).

  1. Should I really be taking a Texas insurance pre-licensing course online?
  2. How will the course material be taught?
  3. What have previous students said about the course/instructor(s) (testimonials)?
  4. How much time, or access, do I have/need to complete the course?
  5. How does the price compare to other courses?


 

1. Should I really be taking a Texas insurance pre-licensing course online?

One of the first decisions you need to make is whether you should take a live course in a classroom setting or a Texas online interactive video led course.

Texas online courses have come a long way over the past couple of years! Are your computer skills up to par? If you are comfortable 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 work, etc. Most importantly, you can complete an online course at your own pace (24/7), and many courses allow you to repeat the material if you don’t completely understand it the first time through.

On the other hand, if you tend to procrastinate, live courses may be a better option, since 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 watch video lectures and then test their knowledge using review questions/exams. If your test scores are low, reviewing the videos again should help boost your comprehension and improve your test scores the next time around.

Make sure you choose a course that gives you the option of contacting an instructor by phone or email. 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, so make sure to read more than one review.

4. How much time, or access, do I have/need to complete the course?

A reputable insurance course that’s well designed will 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.

In-person insurance courses are usually taught over a period of 3-5 days and scheduled right before the Texas 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 complete 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 Texas online insurance pre-licensing courses range from $75 – $150. This is actually quite a small amount to pay when you think about all the doors that open up when you have your insurance license!

The “buyer beware” message here is make sure you know what you are getting when you purchase your course. Here are some questions to ask about any course you are considering enrolling in:

  • Is there a physical book with Texas-specific material in which to take notes and study?
  • Does the company offer demo videos showing how they teach the material?
  • Are there plenty of review questions to help you remember the information come exam day?
  • Does the course have lots of positive testimonials/feedback?
  • What about the company’s customer service?

Texas General Lines Property & Casualty Course

The Texas Property & Casualty licensing exam covers a wide range of topics, from homeowners insurance to workers’ compensation to auto insurance. When learning about Property & Casualty insurance, you will likely encounter many unfamiliar terms, such as “indemnification” and “business tangible property.”

The Texas Property & Casualty Adjuster exam covers general property insurance product knowledge pertinent to adjusters—everything from standard fire policy to inland marine coverage—as well as insurance terms and related concepts. It also covers statutes and regulations specific to Texas.

Hi Jennifer, When you go to setup your exam with Pearson VUE you will have to create an account with them. You will be issued a candidate ID at that point. See the top right section of this page: https://home.pearsonvue.com/tx/insurance Good luck!
