Here’s what one company spokesperson said:

“Principal had about 100 actuaries utilize the course. It was a very efficient way to teach actuaries what it is to be a professional. One of the beauties of the course is that you can go through it on your own schedule. Our staff accessed the course from their desks and from home. We also had departments go through the course in a big group setting. They watched Warren’s videos and then had a lively discussion about how professionalism impacted the department’s work and responsibilities. Principal is always looking for ways to provide continuing education for our staff. This well-done course was a great way to get continuing education in the important professionalism category.“
