Upgrade Option: 
Find yourself studying but for some reason you think the classroom would have been better?  Don't worry, it is not too late.*  You can simply "upgrade" to a classroom setting by simply paying the difference between self-study cost and classroom cost.  (*Limited duration, call the IIAN office for more details at 402-476-2951.)
To do so; go to the course calendar and choose the Prelicensing class that you want to attend and use the "upgrade" line item and check out.  
Order Materials:
Materials are a one time use with a user code per student.  If you have more than one student that is pursuing their license, each student will need their own set of materials.  (As regulated by the Dept. of Ins.)
The Independent Insurance Agents of Nebraska partners with The Essential Step to provide excellent instruction, personal attention in class, and ensure your success in obtaining your insurance license.
  • Packages include a text book and a website login that includes a "study by topic" section as well as your pre-licensing exam information.
  • Materials are shipped directly to you with quick service.
  • Each class is three informative days that will prepare you for your licensing exam.
  • Class is guaranteed! If you don't pass your producer exam - attend another class for free to pinpoint weak areas.
