Making further headway as the leader in multi-vertical career education, Career Certified expands its EdTech footprint

DENVER, Dec. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Career Certified acquired A.D. Banker, a 43-year veteran provider of online education for Insurance (Pre-Licensing and Continuing Education) and Securities (Pre-Licensing). A.D. Banker provides a comprehensive offering for Life & Health, Property and Casualty, Adjuster and Limited Lines, as well as SIE, Series 6, Series 63, Series 65, Series 66 and Series 7 for Securities. Based in Overland Park, Kansas, A.D. Banker delivers services in 51 jurisdictions. A.D. Banker cuts through the high degree of courseware complexity and fragmented industry product offerings to provide a one-stop shop of focused education to both pass and stay licensed in Insurance and Securities professions.

While serving as a leader in the B2C space, A.D. Banker is a prominent player in the B2B arena with long-tenured relationships with financial and insurance companies of all sizes across the nation.

A.D. Banker for Business, a B2B-specific service and portal, helps organizations more efficiently manage their licensure programs by allowing them to auto-enroll, train, and certify hundreds of their employees from a centralized place, which has extensive impact on efficiency, compliance, and regulatory teams.

This acquisition retains the talent and culture that made A.D. Banker a trusted name in the industry for the last 4+ decades, while offering A.D. Banker an opportunity to expand its impact through the Career Certified innovation engine. Owned by the Anderson family, and led by Debbie Anderson McCoy, a prominent voice in the industry, A.D. Banker's healthy growth, superior customer service and account management practices, thoughtful go-to-market plans in both B2B and B2C, and deep understanding of the industries made them an ideal fit for the Career Certified family of brands. 

"I was immediately impressed by the team behind A.D. Banker," said Gary Weiss, CEO of Career Certified. "Their passion to do the right thing for their customers and stay ahead of this highly regulated industry, all while retaining a talented and dedicated staff, is a testament to the strength of their foundational roots. They bring us so many opportunities to hold true to our pledge to our enrollees to deliver the most innovative, outcome-based, and superior education and, ultimately, career freedom."

"After deep analysis and understanding all opportunities and risks, Career Certified was the best home for continuity and care for our customers and employees because the leadership team felt like an extension of our family. We're all very excited to collaborate and continue to serve these industries best," said Debbie McCoy, President of A.D. Banker.
