KAIA members have access to online training through three high-quality sources: ABEN, IRMI/WebCE and Virtual University.
ABEN Online Classes
The Agents & Brokers Education Network (ABEN) offers a catalog of classes available via webcasting. With ABEN, agents can view the class online and ask questions during the class. Participation is monitored throughout the course, which means there are no tests to take afterward to prove your participation. Upon completion of an ABEN class, KAIA will file your continuing education credit with the Kansas Insurance Department.
IRMI/WebCE Online Classes
IRMI and WebCE offer a catalog of online classes for both agents and financial planning professionals. State-specific topics include ethics, law and legislative updates, flood, homeowners, annuity suitability and LTC training.
Virtual University Online Classes
Virtual University is IIABA's online learning center for independent agents. The VU site offers alternative learning methods, ranging from a comprehensive Research Library and Ask-an-Expert service to live and recorded webinars. Virtual University also offers self-study courses that are not available from any other industry source.
