Agent and Broker Education Network (ABEN)

Founded by state associations of independent insurance agents, ABEN is dedicated to bringing highly relevant, interactive, and professionally produced continuing education programs to independent agents in the most convenient and economical ways possible.

ABEN uses streaming video content over the internet that provides the participant with live, full motion video of the presenter, high quality audio, along with coordinated powerpoint slides. The platform also allows the end user to fully participate in the webcast by downloading written materials, emailing questions to presenters in real time, making notes in the viewer "notes" area, and emailing those notes to themselves for later use. Presenters interact with each other as well as the participant. This delivers an educational experience that is engaging, interesting, as well as professionally rewarding.
