"Super job today, Robin. One of the best seminars that I've ever attended (or presented).  It was a stunning performance. And you can quote me!"
Jerome Trupin CPCU, CLU, ChFC,  TRUPIN INSURANCE SERVICES,  Insurance Consulting for Public & Private Entities, Sleepy Hollow, NY. (Presentation to the Westchester Fairfield Hudson CPCU Chapter at UCONN in Stamford, CT)

"I was in your [P&C Pre-Licensing] class. I just wanted to let you know that I did pass my [VT licensing] test on Friday. You are a great teacher! I had taken this class once before, 3-years ago when I first was hired, and the teacher I had back then was not helpful at all. So, I just wanted you to know that you really were a huge help and thought it would make you feel good to know that I passed. Thanks!!" C.N. (Montpelier, VT)

"Robin has a great teaching/speaking style. She knows how to keep us interested and engaged." C.V.

"I wanted to take the time to tell you that I passed the exam for P&C [license]. You did a great job preparing us for the exam and presented the material in an easy to understand format. I thank you for your training as well as your gift you gave us at the end of the course. I used the gift and had a very positive non-stressed test day...I hope to see you soon to get some CE courses done." J.G.

"Novel approach to classroom training; would recommend to other insurance professionals." M. M.

"[you] made a complicated topic easier to understand." A.M.

"I want to personally thank you for having this class. It’s funny how America has become so "computerized", and when you actually have to look something up it may become a challenge. Working with my team yesterday made us look for the answer rather than sending a client to claims. With the understanding of reading a policy has not only made me gain knowledge of how to actually read a policy, but it's going to help me be a better CSR. Thank you again. I look forward to seeing you in August for another class." M.L.

"Excellent class participation. Helps retain subject matter." B.H.

"Great, smooth delivery and presentation." M.L.

"IETA has won me over based on its professionalism, knowledge, and reputation for delivering quality insurance education." B.J.

"The case studies [in Ethics - Is it Relevant to Insurance?] really cause you to think about your job completely, beyond the day-to-day activities we complete for our clients." K.M.

"Gave me a better feel for the Flood Policy. Answered lots of questions I had but never had the chance to ask!" P.S.
