"This is the second time I've used the 6-hour Online Course to renew my commission which shows how much I enjoyed it. The first time I passed with a 96; this time I passed with 100! I've taken the live seminars in the past and I find that I score better with the online course as there are reviews and practice exams available. Thanks!" P.H.
