    The Class

    Our prelicensing courses do not count toward Continuing Education credits

    The material covered is required by the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance as prelicensing education and is outlined in the State of Wisconsin Administrative Code Ins 26. The class will focus on the concepts presented in the Pathfinder textbook or LH Learning Guide, and The Intermediary’s Guide to Wisconsin Insurance Law, which is handed out on the 1st day of class. This is NOT a class to learn how to sell insurance, it covers the material required by the State.
    Prelicensing education is not an exam prep course. Prelicensing education material covered in any WI prelicensing course is required by the state. Reviews of material are covered if there is time available during class. Study outside the classroom and exam preparation is highly recommended. Information about Exam Prep material for purchase will be given in the classroom.

    The path to success

    We supply you with all of the resources needed to successfully pass the Insurance Exam. If a Summit Schools student fails the exam, Summit Schools will allow the student to sit in the entire class, or any section, free of charge, for review, within one year of the last day of original class in which the certificate was provided. The Prelicensing completion certificate is by law only valid for 1 year. (If any publications used within the class have changed, the student will be responsible for that cost.) All cancellations questions or concerns should be directed to the office at 1-800-432-6406.

    Acceptance

    Each student will be notified by phone, e-mail, mail or fax, of their acceptance and class confirmation.  There is no entrance requirement for prelicensing but you must be 18 to be licensed in Wisconsin.

    Attendance

    The State of WI mandates the number of hours and content for pre-licensing education. You must be present for all required mandated hours and material to receive credit for attendance. To verify your presence each day, you will need to “sign-in” and be ready to provide photo identification when asked. You will receive a certificate verifying your attendance. Summit Schools Inc. will not assume responsibility for material that is missed because of tardiness and will not suspend or dismiss a student for unsatisfactory attendance. You will not receive full credit until all hours of content missed are made up. If it becomes necessary to leave a class prior to completion for any reason we will allow the student to attend a similar class within 6 months. No audio or visual taping is allowed. Please dress casually, and bring at least 2 highlighters. All cancellations must be directed to the office at 1-800-432-6406.

    Dismissal Policy

    Each student will behave in a mature and professional manner. Summit Schools reserves the right to suspend or dismiss a student who engages in conduct that is dishonest, destructive or that involves the theft of property, or possessions. The consumption of alcohol or the use of illegal drugs will be grounds for dismissal. Students engaging in activity deemed by our instructors to be disruptive to others will also be dismissed from class.

    Cancellation and Refund Policy

    All cancellations must be directed to the office at 1-800-432-6406. Summit Schools Inc. reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any class for which we have insufficient attendance. If you cancel your enrollment less than 5 days before the class, or don’t show up, we will refund your money except for a $100 processing fee. If a student terminates enrollment prior to completion of the class, the student will be allowed to attend a similar class within 6 months, or receive a partial refund on class fees only. The pro-rata charge will be 25% of the class fee for each day the student attended the class. Any part of a day will be counted as a full day in respect to refund. No refund is given on books and materials.
