Insurance continuing education is a perfect subject matter for webinar training. We should know. We’ve been delivering insurance CE for years using webinars and text-based self-paced online training. This article covers the broad definition of a webinar and how it’s used in insurance continuing education. That includes the compelling benefits of insurance CE webinars, including no final exam.
What Is a Webinar?
The broad definition is that a webinar is an online event broadcast via the Internet to a group of individuals on their computers, tablets, or even smartphones. It is also called a web seminar, webcast, or online event.
With the rise of Zoom and other online video conferencing systems, nearly everyone, from grade school students to senior citizens, is familiar with the basic framework of audio and visual presentations via webinars. While a webinar can be a pre-recorded video presentation, the best approach is a live presentation, which allows interaction between the presenter and the audience.
Here at BetterCE, a webinar is an online instructor-led presentation. Instructors share their screens, their files, and their knowledge via audio and video in real time. This allows students to ask questions and receive answers helping them and their fellow students better understand the content so they can use it immediately in their work. And our insurance CE webinars do not require a final exam.
Why Do Webinars Work Great for Insurance Continuing Education?
Webinars are a great way to deliver insurance continuing education. Here are the key reasons.
- Perfect Presentations. Webinars provide top-notch instructors with extensive experience and expertise. With that background, they deliver engaging content for their audiences. They also get real-time feedback with questions and discussions that fully explain every topic.
- Convenience and Time Savings. Since webinars are delivered via any computer, smartphone, or tablet with an Internet connection, travel time, cost, and hassle are a thing of the past. You only need to dedicate your time to the actual presentation, wherever you may be.
- Meet State CE Attendance Requirements. Many states mandate classroom or classroom-equivalent attendance for students to receive insurance continuing education credits. Fortunately, almost every state insurance regulator now approves live webinars as if they were traditional classroom courses. BetterCE confirms attendance by requiring students to check in randomly throughout the webinar.
- No Quizzes or Final Exams. With webinars, in-person attendance and participation are the only requirements. There are no quizzes and no final exams. Plus, there are no required reading materials or final exam monitor requirements. It couldn’t get easier.
