CPCU Study Groups Made for You

You’ve taken on the challenge of earning your CPCU designation and we’re proud of you.

You’re busy with work, and responsibilities at home, and maybe you’re wondering if you can do this. We’re here to tell you that YOU CAN. If you’ve made this commitment to yourself as an insurance professional, you can join the many CPCUs who’ve come before, and you don’t have to do it alone. Whether you need accountability, real-life case studies to bring the concepts to life, or the support and comradery of a group, we’re here to help with the guidance of our expert and relatable facilitators. You and your CPCU study group can do it. You’ve got this – together.

Groups are limited to 40 participants and new sessions will begin quarterly. Facilitated Study Groups are complimentary for Pathways members, however, individual registration is required to participate. If you would like to participate and are not a member, join today.  If you are joining the CPCU Society for the first time, please allow 24 hours for your dues to process before registering for the study group. 

Participants are required to purchase their own study materials from The Institutes. Participants will also receive access to a private online community through Interact with their facilitator and group members.
