    We've received positive comments from many of our agents, like Charlene Kuntz of Shreveport, LA after she took one of our courses.

    "I generally stay at my desk during my lunch hour," Kuntz said. "Occasionally I will stay after work to study. It's nice to be able to study around my schedule. It is so simple to follow, understand and apply to everyday situations. Best of all, it's affordable!"

    Kuntz added that not only has our continuing education courses helped increase her insurance knowledge, they also boosted her confidence and efficiency.

    Agents have also said that right after taking one of our short online courses, they were immediately able to apply what they learned in conversations with customers.

    That's right - Foremost Education does listen to our agents – and we love hearing from you! Comment below if you've found our education to be a great resource.
