Advantages of Pre-Licensing Classes
Pre-licensing classes are one of the best ways to make sure you get your license quickly and easily. These classes are tailored to your state’s requirements and designed to help you pass without having to take the test several times.
While not every state requires a pre-licensing class, some do. So, you may also be required to show proof of a qualified pre-licensing class before you can register for your exam.
You'll also get online flashcards to help study materials. What To Expect From Your Pre-Licensing Classroom Course
Knowing what to expect from your pre-licensing classroom course is important if you want to succeed. These courses need to cover a lot of information, so it’s important to make sure you’re prepared to pay attention and have what you need to help you study after taking the course.
For in-classroom days it's a good idea to have something to help you take notes and make food plans and to stay hydrated through the day. That way you'll be better able to concentrate and less likely to miss important material.
Classroom courses at Enterprise Training School Inc. include:
- 2-3 days of in-class instruction.
- An experienced in-person instructor.
- Class textbook
- An e-book version of the textbook
- Online study materials
The length of your course and the exact material covered depends on what test you're planning to take. All of our classes are tailored to the specific license you’re pursuing and the requirements of that license.
In addition to the in-class instruction, you will also receive extensive online study materials to help you prepare. The online materials include chapter quizzes to help you see whether you’re prepared for your exam. You'll also get online flashcards to help study, and practice exams that put everything together so you can prepare for the whole test.
That way you’ll have both in-class instruction, and the flexibility of studying online for your test. Online study lets you review any difficult concepts from class, while in class time gives you the added benefit of an experienced instructor to help answer your questions.
Pros and Cons to Classroom Pre-Licensing Courses
Classroom courses are a good option for many insurance license candidates, but they aren’t always the best option. Here are some pros and cons to consider while you’re deciding whether a classroom course is the right option for you.
Pro: Classroom time can help answer your questions: One of the advantages of taking an in-person class is that you can ask your instructors any questions you might have and get an immediate answer. That way you don’t have to worry about coming to the wrong conclusion or getting confused over a difficult piece of material.
Con: You need to schedule several days for the class: Taking classes in person means you need to have 2-3 days set aside just for the class, plus additional study time. That can be hard to fit into a busy schedule.
Pro: All your study materials are included: Taking a pre-licensing course is a great first step, but you may want additional study materials to help you continue preparing between the class and your exam. Thankfully, with Enterprise Training School Inc. students get access to online training materials in addition to your in-person class.
Con: In-classroom learning doesn't let you move at your own pace: One disadvantage to in-class learning is that you have to keep up with the pace of the class, instead of learning at your own speed. That can mean that you’ll spend more time on some concepts than you need, and less time than you need to understand other parts of the course.
Alternatives to Classroom Courses
If you aren’t sure whether a classroom pre-licensing course is right for you, there are other options.
Webinars: Webinar courses give you all the advantages of classroom learning along with the advantages of online learning. It’s usually easier to fit a webinar into your schedule than a classroom course, and you can also study at your own pace to make sure you understand all the content.
Self-Guided Study: Self-guided study gives you the flexibility to learn at your own pace and to spend as much time as you need on the course. Combined with powerful online learning tools, self-guided study is good for motivated learners who don’t need classroom instruction time.
