FLMI Level 1 Testimonials

The best experience in learning that I have ever been involved with and at my pace.

Angela Rodriguez, Southern Farm Bureau Life Insurance

As a newcomer into the insurance industry the Need 2 Know, LOMA online courses, are helping me tremendously to gain a thorough knowledge of the insurance terminologies and have a better understanding of how the industry works. The great thing about it is that I can access it 24/7 from my home or even if I’m miles away from home. The web application is user friendly and interactive so you are actively engaged in learning the materials plus the mini tests help you prepare for the exam!

Freshta Nawassan, SSQ Financial Group

Our new employees like the interactive courses and feel that they actually learn more than in traditional courses. Employees also have said that they feel more confident in their jobs and have more knowledge they can use on the job as a result of participating in this new format.
