Live Webinars

Nebraska & Iowa

What are they, and how do they work?

Webinars are over-the-internet courses conducted in real-time that allow students to receive the highest quality instruction while watching from their own computer, tablet or smartphone. Webinars combine the convenience of online courses with live instruction and interaction with the instructor. Our webinars have a chat box which allows students to ask questions and participate in the course, making for a more dynamic learning experience. Best of all, at the end of the Webinar, there is no test required for CE credit to be earned!

At Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) of Nebraska and Iowa we want our Webinars to provide the best possible simulation of a live classroom environment. It is for this reason that NONE of the Webinars you take from us are pre-recorded; they all take place in real-time and are taught by the instructor who authored the course. Our instructors use a webcam so you will hear and see him/her teach, address questions and provide answers - all in real-time!

All that you need to take PIA NE/IA Webinars are working speakers and a good internet connection. Webinars occur at a scheduled date and time, below is a list of our available Webinar courses.

After the conclusion of the webinar PIA will verify your attendance with the class administrator and file your CE credits online with the NE & IA Insurance Department State Based Systems database within 10 days (webinar fees must be paid in full in order to file CE credits).
