At AE21 Online we have always strived to provide the very best in online training. Since we began in 2004, we have set ourselves apart by dedicating our training exclusively to the adjuster and claims professional community. While agents and producers may find our courses of interest, it is, and always has been, our mission to develop quality material that is informative, engaging, and relevent to the unique job of the adjuster. The world of online training, or e-learning as it is often called, is ever evolving… and we have made it a priority to evolve with it so that we may bring you the cutting edge in online adjuster education.
Welcome to the Future!
In keeping with this goal, we are moving to a new, fresh learning management system and have given our already top quality courses new life. Gone are the days of “words on paper” courses. While maintaining the integrity of our continuing educational (CE) material, this new generation of courses will engage you with visually appealing design, relevent imagery, interactivity and even multimedia such as video clips. As a customer of AE21 Online, we want you to be the first to know about the changes ahead.
This evolution of training is an initiative that we have been dedicating ourselves to for quite some time. We are excited to announce that the time has come to begin rolling it out to you. Transition will begin on Monday, August 5th, and continuing into the next few months beginning with our continuing education courses.
We are excited to finally bring this evolution to you. We are taking steps to ensure that this shift happens as seamlessly as possible.
