In January 2005 Best's Review stated "In 2005, insurance organizations will face a number of challenges to grow the business, contain costs and mitigate risk."  In the same month Chief Learning Officer Magazine wrote "there is a direct correlation between the level of investment in company training and increased levels of productivity and profitability.  If you want to breathe some life into your operation, start by investing in your people: train them."

Online training can deliver significant cost savings for CEO's and their organizations when compared to traditional types of business training, according to The American Society of Training and Development (ASTD).  And recent research conducted by Feedback Research of Redwood City, California found that most people who responded to their survey believe the quality of online education equals or is better than taking classes in an actual classroom setting.

Today forward looking agency principals are following PIA's lead by using more online training courses to increase sales, reduce costs and gain an overall advantage in the highly competitive insurance marketplace.  Participating PIA affiliates offer a wide range of online insurance courses for both property and casualty and life and health professionals, including producers, CSR's, underwriters and other agency employees.  Many courses are also available to train employees on a range of business skills, computer desktop skills, compliance issues and office technology.  Managers can select and assign courses to create training programs to meet their agency's specific training needs.

Online education available from PIA is a fast, affordable and smart way to increase the knowledge base of your agency.  Your employees are your greatest assets.  It just makes good business sense to implement online education for your staff.
