What Our Students Say

I highly recommend ITAC for anyone training for general insurance. I breezed through the exam because of the way ITAC had broken down each chapter and compiled videos for refresh. Cathy was always an email away and I felt 100% supported and wanted to share in my success. I passed on the first try because of this course.

Thank you Cathy and ITAC.

Maggie Aveve Myatt

General Insurance

I just wanted to take the time to let you know that these past few weeks have been quite the educational experience, in a good way, with all the technology and the learning from a computer screen, sometimes we think that it’s not as good as in a real classroom. I have to say I have been really enjoying the chapters, and the help along the way from you and Cathy has been tremendous.

 You can tell you love your job and want your students to succeed.

 Thank you again,
