Very informative class. The instructor takes the time to answer all the questions you have to the best of his knowledge which is great when you’re new to the insurance business. I highly recommend taking the classes here for Pre-certification or CE and the Receptionist has wonderful customer service.

Great learning environment. Super friendly. The secretary here is one of the nicest people ive personally ever met. You couldn’t ask for a teacher who’s more knowledgeable about insurance than Tom Ripperda. In addition, I’ve talked with others who had great experiences with other instructors at Educational Concepts Unlmtd as well. Whoever your teacher, they will be committed in assuring you are ready to pass your licensing tests.

Never thought a two day property casualty insurance class could be interested, but it was. The experience and real life examples to make the concepts relevant made the course easy to follow along with and understand

I took the webinar for my insurance license and passed. Everyone I dealt with where super helpful and went out of their way to make sure I passed and got me the information along with congratulations! I was told that in class is better and invited by my teacher to sit in on his class. I feel like if I need help they would gladly help me succeed! I would tell people in the future that in class would be a better choice if you live close. But they also worked with me on the webinar also. Great school and very helpful.

Mr. Ripperda does an excellent job on going through the testable material for the Life and Health exam. I particularly found the License manual and the test prep questions extremely useful to passing the test.

Compared to other companies, they are far more superior. If you really want to know your stuff. Take these classes IN PERSON. They do offer online as well(I have not taken anything online from them)but from doing other classes online, I suggest the In person. The instructors have years of knowledge and are eager to help you! I have taken two classes from them. I was able to obtain my Life, Property, and Casualty Lines of Authority to my License on the first try. Lots of studying however paved the way to success. Thank you everyone at ECUI!

Requirement stinks, but Educational Concepts is great. People are either ethical or they’re not. Can’t be taught.
I took the property and casualty course (in class) and I found it to be very informative and beneficial. The instructor was fantastic. I would highly recommend using their services.

Outstanding experience with Educational Concepts Unlimited! Called in after hours one evening and Tom answered the phone to share that there was an ethics webinar the following day. Signed up on their website right away and followed up with his delightful secretary the next morning to confirm I was able to attend the training. The mandatory 3 hour was was informative and entertaining. Thanks!
