GE Insurance Institute First in New York State with Online Prelicensing Education

The Global Education Insurance Institute is the first and only prelicensing course provider approved by the NYS Insurance Department for online insurance prelicensing courses.

Staten Island, NY, December 13, 2007 --( Global Education Insurance Institute holds the distinction of being the only licensing preparation provider approved by the New York State Insurance Department for online insurance prelicensing courses to New York State residents.

“This represents a significant shift,” says Institute Director Michael T LeCornec, “in the Insurance Department’s long-standing policy of requiring formal classroom instruction for prelicensing education.” Technological advancements in examination software and online learning management systems now make it possible to offer new and different learning opportunities without compromising educational integrity.

“There are three critical components to a successful eLearning Environment,” says Michael LeCornec, “Course Development and Delivery; Examination Simulation and Evaluation; and Online Administration and Management.” Global Education has accomplished all via the creation of Web-EDsurance™ Online Courseware designed to help licensing candidates master the topical content of their insurance licensing examination; the formation of the GE Insurance Institute as the exclusive distributor of Web-EDsurance in New York; and the development of XAM-NET™ Online Examination Simulation and Evaluation Solution that uses state-of-the-art Personal Learning Technologies(SM) to analyze and measure candidate preparedness to pass professional licensing examinations. The final piece of pulling all the elements together into a cohesive eLearning Solution is accomplished via a Learning Management System that manages administration, logistics, candidate preparedness and regulatory compliance.

Web-EDsurance and XAM-NET technology thoroughly delivers, measures and evaluates candidate preparedness to pass professional licensing examinations. “Candidates are now able to reasonably measure their probability of exam success prior to taking their State Licensing Examination thus saving time, money and self-esteem,” says LeCornec.

The New York Insurance Department authorized the use of Online Prelicensing Education for three lines of insurance licenses in June, 2007: The Agent/Broker Life Insurance license; The Agent/Broker Accident & Health Insurance license and the very popular Agent/Broker Life, Accident & Health Insurance license. Global Education’s Web-EDsurance(TM) program represents the first and only online courses approved by the New York Insurance Department thus far.

“Web-EDsurance and XAM-NET are significant achievements for both Global Education and the GE Insurance Institute,” says Director LeCornec. A new paradigm for how insurance prelicensing education is delivered in New York State has been ushered in through the advent of eLearning and Web-EDsurance. “eLearning will likely become the standard for many years to come because everyone wins with quality online licensing preparation,” says LeCornec. Institutions offering in-house courses through approved providers no longer need worry about threats of increased prices or class cancellations for not meeting minimum attendance requirements; Recruits no longer need to take time off from work to attend class or make long after-hour commutes to large metropolitan schools.
