It was the early ’70s in Portland, Oregon. The state was one of the first in the nation to pass a law requiring a pre-license training course for those who wanted to become licensed insurance agents. At the time, there weren’t really any schools around for future insurance agents to take these required live courses. Thus, our company was formed!
Since then, we’ve operated live schools in Oregon, Washington, California, Hawaii, Arizona, Texas, Colorado, Illinois and Minnesota. Our hard copy study products have benefited students throughout the US since the late ’90s. Currently, we operate the largest live lecture insurance and securities schools in Arizona, Colorado and Illinois.
In 2006, we rebranded our company as TesTeachers. Around the same time, we converted our unparalleled content into online-accessible video lectures, allowing us to reach students far and wide who were hungry for this knowledge. As the first school ever to offer the truest replication of a live lecture class online, the immense popularity of our online training programs has established us as one of the most trusted and innovative examination preparation providers worldwide.
So, how does all this tie together?
We’ve combined our passion for providing the best study materials and proven teaching methods with the accessibility of the internet for one reason only: to assist you in passing your exam on the first attempt. Our company has been training individuals to pass insurance and securities licensing exams for over 40 years now, so we know a thing or two about what it takes for you to be successful. We hope we have the privilege of assisting you in passing your exam on the first attempt!
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. Thank you for taking the time to read this post, and if you are one of our students, get back to your studies! You have work to do!
