As a professional in the field, think about what insurance license continuing education means to the policy holders you serve. When they call in with questions or concerns, you want and need to have useful and complete answers. They might ask about moving from state to state, or finding ways to lower the cost of their premiums, or adjusting coverage they already have. You're able to tell them more than numbers.

Because of your insurance license continuing education, you can give them the up-to-date information they need, readily. Ideally they'll hang up the telephone and know that as far as customer service and policy information is concerned, they've got the best provider in the book. It's not for nothing that those who work in insurance must be licensed to do so. It's not for nothing that renewing that license means proving that you're up to date on developments in the field.

The goal of the industry, after all, is protecting people and businesses against damage and loss. It has been that way ever since the city of London burnt very nearly to the ground in 1666--for the second time. The classes you take in the course of your ongoing insurance license continuing education will keep you abreast of developments in the industry as well pertinent related changes in both federal and state legislation and the economy.
