The Program is divided into twenty (20) 2-Hour Sessions which run Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM Eastern Time. Full attendance is required.
REGISTRATION FOR EACH VC PROGRAM WILL CLOSE 10 DAYS IN ADVANCE OF THE FIRST SESSION DATE TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE TIME FOR STUDENTS TO COMPLETE THE ASSIGNED READING PRIOR TO THE FIRST SESSION.
DO NOT REGISTER FOR THIS COURSE UNLESS YOU ARE PREPARED TO COMPLETE ALL ASSIGNED READING, ATTEND ALL TWENTY SESSIONS OF THE PROGRAM, TAKE AND PASS ALL SESSION QUIZZES, SUBMIT ALL SESSION CODE PHRASES, AND TAKE AND PASS THE FINAL COURSE EXAM. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN EXPULSION FROM THE PROGRAM.
Effective January 1, 2024, Alabama House Bill 60 deleted the prelicensing course requirement for all Alabama insurance producers, independent adjusters, apprentice independent adjusters, and title insurance agents. Those applying for licensure must still pass the applicable State Exam.
The 2024 Title Agent State Exam is based on the Alabama Study Manual for Title Insurance 5th Edition, written by Karen Koogler, who instructs the newly revised 2024 Alabama Title Agent Exam Prep and Post-Licensing Program.
Since the inception of Title Agent Licensing [Alabama Act 2012-397], The Koogler Group, in partnership with the Southeast Land Title Association [SLTA], successfully delivered the Alabama 20-Hour Prelicensing Course for a full decade to over 500 students as well as attorneys admitted to the Alabama Bar seeking CLE credit.
Alabama Attorneys: This Program is approved by the Mandatory CLE Commission of Alabama for a maximum of 16.7 hours credit, including 1 hour of ethics.
Since 2017, the ALDOI began tracking the State Exam passing ratio for all insurance and adjuster licenses by prelicensing provider and exam types. The 20-Hour Prelicensing Program taught by Karen Koogler and offered through The Koogler Group (in partnership with SLTA) averaged an impressive 90% passing ratio.
