Insurance Educational Association Announces Spring 2010 Curriculum

SANTA ANA, CA--(Marketwire - November 30, 2009) - The Insurance Educational Association (IEA), a leading provider of insurance related courses, has released its spring 2010 programs for enrollment. Courses begin on January 25, 2010.

In today's tough job market, it's more important than ever that insurance professionals have the tools they need for employment security and advancement. By enrolling in an IEA program, participants obtain training conducted by well known industry instructors.
