Virtual Classroom Community for Students Preparing to PASS The Institutes™ Exams for CPCU, ARM, ERM, AIC, AU, AAI, and AINS
PrepAdemy™ combines all the benefits of a risk and insurance educational community, a blog, a professional network, and a live virtual classroom for CPCU, ARM, ERM, AIC, AU, AAI, and AINS online classes. You will find course leaders who are well-known and highly regarded in their fields, teaching through live and online interactive classes to bring a blended learning experience home to your computer.
Availability– In the traditional work environment, it’s often hard to get people to take the time to discuss anything beyond the immediate work at your desk – and sometimes it’s hard to even get that much.
At PrepAdemy™ our primary focus is on creating relationships between you, your course leaders, and your fellow insurance professionals. Every question is worth asking. Every individual here has the time.
Breadth of knowledge– The traditional work environment focuses, and rightly so, on learning the job. Unfortunately, just learning your job isn’t everything you need to know to advance in your career.
We offer courses in particulars of risk and insurance on which you need clarification or expansion. At PrepAdemy™, you get the expertise and help you need to pass the exam and learn the business.
Affordability – Earning designations to advance your career does not need a huge price tag.
We believe you should get the knowledge you need to pass the exam. That’s why we offer all our courses, study groups, faculty hours, communities, and blogs for an affordable class fee.
Convenience – Remember racing through traffic to get to the physical classroom? That race never happens at PrepAdemy™.
Attend live weekly classes online using your computer. Missed a live class? No problem, all classes are recorded so you can view them at any time, and all of our previous classes, and other media are available 24/7 whenever you’re ready to learn, read, discuss, or ask questions. There’s no such thing as a one-time class at PrepAdemy™.
I want to thank you for the efforts you put into providing the opportunity for those seeking an alternative to self-study. Most people taking these exams are working adults with families and you provide an outlet for those needing the discipline of a classroom setting, but not actually needing to sit in a class. I especially like how you partner with professionals in the industry to teach their area of expertise. –Stephanie S. - Georgia
I have been very impressed with PrepAdemy. I have taken both live classes and recorded classes. My instructors have always been very knowledgeable. I think it is awesome to be able to interact with the live classes and ask questions. The challenge of competing for the “Most Interested Student” award has been so much fun if you are the least bit competitive like myself. I think the homework assignments along with the practice smart quiz questions help a lot, it keeps you engaged. I have always gone back and listened to the recordings again when studying for the exam and found that super helpful to have access to those. I would recommend PrepAdemy to everyone!–Julie K. - Wisconsin
PrepAdemy is a great program to help you prepare for the Accredited Advisor of Insurance (AAI) exam. I found PrepAdemy when I was searching for online classes to help me prepare for my upcoming AAI 81 exam and I am so glad that I did. Even though with my work schedule, I was not able to attend any of the live classes, I could access the class recordings anytime. The classes were structured to cover a section of the book each week; therefore, they helped me stay on track for my approaching exam. In addition to the weekly classes, I was emailed a copy of the weekly presentation to review and make class notes on, chat tips, and worksheets for additional reinforcement of the material.–Kathy H. - Kentucky
Many times when taking self-study courses or online classes, I have felt like if I had questions or did not understand the material, I had nowhere to turn for help. It is not that way with PrepAdemy. I could call or email the instructor with any questions or concerns that I had about the material and they were happy to assist in any way. Along with the class, I read the material and practiced with the smart quizzes weekly. This course was not something I could have prepared for in a short period of time. I needed a structured study plan to help me study the material and classes to reinforce and explain the material that I had read. Thanks PrepAdemy for helping me prepare for and pass the AAI 81 exam! I am looking forward to continuing this journey with the PrepAdemy AAI 82 class that starts in a few weeks.–Kathy H. - Kentucky
To say PrepAdemy offers a value added product is an understatement. I live more than an hour from the closest classroom offering to pass The Institutes Associate in Risk Management ARM designation series. Sandy’s choices of instructors that bring the chapters to life have been top notch. The chat tips and chapter review presentations finish a well-designed offering. If you are looking for a way to give yourself the best opportunity to pass these exams you have found the right product.–Wayne W. - Washington
PrepAdemy was a great resource in earning my AIC designation. Through four courses I have taken the live class as well as downloaded the recordings at times when my schedule didn’t allow me to participate live. Both options have their benefits but I found them both to be of value. Although the live classes presented the best opportunity to ask questions and interact with others I also found that the recorded classes were just as valuable and I could always go back and listen at my own leisure. The instructors are very knowledgeable and make themselves available at all times, even at moments when I was not enrolled in a course but just had a question or needed assistance. PrepAdemy was a great tool in providing me with the knowledge I needed to complete my designation and I would recommend it to anyone seeking an extra boost to ensure success on your next exam.–Jaron W. - Arizona
PrepAdemy helped me to complete the final step of my CPCU designation. I was not sure if I would like an online class, since I never did one before, so I went with the recorded class. By having the recording to listen to and review, as often as needed, I was able to get a better understanding of the material in the book and better prepare for the exam. At first I thought I would only have the recording to listen to, but I quickly realized it was much more. The extra support of having help just an e-mail or phone call away if needed. The quick and informative responses to any and all of my questions. The time you took to break things down step by step. It was just what I needed.–Louise C. - New Jersey
I recently passed my AIC 32 exam after taking the PrepAdemy live on-live classes. I found the expertise of the instructor and his ability to relate the material to practical situations and current events to be exceptional. Providing us with review exercises as we proceeded through the course was extremely helpful in keeping the material that was covered initially fresh in my mind. I truly felt that my success was their ultimate goal and their flexibility in guiding the course to fit each students needs was invaluable. So thank you and I can’t wait for the next class!!–Brandon J. - Ohio
PrepAdemy provided the perfect framework for me to successfully pass ARM 54. Preparing for and attending weekly classes and reviewing provided homework questions and answers were the right education formula for me and my busy schedule. The host/producer and instructor’s focus and expertise directly contributed to my passing ARM 54 on my first attempt. Thank you!–Deanna C. - Arizona
The class at PrepAdemy was interactive and informative. Their presentation of the information was a very helpful in learning the material and reviewing for the exam. Thanks, PrepAdemy!–Theresa K. - Wisconsin
It really helped so much to listen to the recordings for AINS21. I thought both of the teachers were very good and knowledgeable and helped to bring out the subject matter and made it interesting. I have already taken my AINS21 test and passed with a Good which is a 80-89 score. I am not good about studying on my own and don’t have a lot of time, so I would say that PrepAdemy is the reason for my good score.–Calvin G. - Texas
I was unable to participate in a live class session, but I used the recorded sessions, notes, and chat tips for preparation for the ARM 56 exam. These sessions helped me immeasurably, and I was able to pass the exam on my first attempt.–Ryan L. - Virginia
I passed my exam this morning! Thank you so much for all your help. I felt very prepared for the test and the PrepAdemy course is a big reason why I did so well! I look forward to starting ARM 55!–Kevin K. - New York
Extremely easy to set up and join classes. Very professional! Made going to class a whole lot easier.–Scott M. - Texas
My frustration with other study methods and with self-study in general lies in that I am definitely an auditory learner. I decided I needed a group environment and I began researching my options. Resources to participate in an "in person" group in my area were very limited. I selected PrepAdemy for several reasons: 1) The information that is pertinent to the exam is what is focused on. 2) You can refer back to the recordings if you have a question later or for exam review. 3) Tremendous flexibility in when you access the materials. 4) The materials themselves were excellent, the handouts make an excellent review material that you can take away from the computer and have as a portable aid. 5) Sandy is genuinely interested in the success of her students!–Chris M. - Florida
Connecting to the online class is very simple. Having the online class kept me accountable to do the reading and course guide work every week, which I believe made a significant difference in my ability to pass the exam. Just reading the text and doing practice exams would not have been enough, in my opinion. Thank you for making the class available PrepAdemy! See you for ARM 56.–Reina L. - Arizona
After putting off the final leg of the ARM since 2005, I finally got the instruction I needed to pass ARM 56 and now am the proud owner of the ARM-P designation. I’ll recommend PrepAdemy to anyone who asks.–Steve B. - Colorado
I read each chapter and completed the course guide from the Institutes, but needed a little extra help. The PrepAdemy audio presentations, interactive slides and reviews helped to clear the mud puddle. Your program helped to bridge the gap and helped me PASS the first of the ARM series. I will be registering for the next two classes! Sandy, Thank You again.–Wayne W. - Washington
