Continuing Education & Pre-Licensing Courses
IIANC schedules hundreds of quality CE courses throughout the year in a variety of locations around the state. Many of our classes fall in two categories: Focus Courses and Premier Courses.
Focus Courses - These classes are designed to keep students up to date with current changes in policy forms, regulatory mandates, and errors & omissions classes. All focus classes have been approved for CE in North Carolina.
Premier Courses - These courses are written and instructed exclusively for IIANC by the Society of CIC’s premier national faculty. The programs are designed to keep agents up to date on the latest developments in the industry and have been approved for CE in North Carolina.
To make education easier for your busy agency staff, IIANC offers an in-house education program. We can teach customized education classes at your office on your schedule. There is an additional fee schedule for this service.

Agents & Brokers Education Network (ABEN)
IIANC has joined with over 20 other Big I state associations to form the Agents & Brokers Education Network (ABEN) which offers professional insurance training and continuing education using premier, live webcast technology.
Housed within each of these state associations are volumes of valuable educational insurance content along with some of the industry’s best instructors. ABEN’s live webcasts will pool these resources to offer high quality CE training in your office at a fraction of the cost associated with attending an on-site course. The live webcast will stream professional instructors right into your office, along with related course material and the ability to ask questions and interact with other students as well as with the instructor. Beam me up Scotty…Live ABEN Webcasts are here!
