SIP Testimony

IEA’s California Self-Insurance Administrator’s Exam Prep course is comprehensive and immersive. The instructor lends his expertise to provide relevant insight into the material and continual references to the exam.

I finished the online course with IEA and scheduled my exam. I passed it on the first try. Greatly thankful to IEA and Professor Bob Cornelow.

Bob Cornelow is an excellent instructor and it’s always a pleasure attending his classes. I can’t imagine anyone else being able to do a better job than Bob.
