The Impact of Online Learning
The online education industry has grown substantially in the past few years. According to Skill Scouter, since 2000 eLearning has increased by 900%. Additionally, the demand for online business and marketing education has grown by over 1820% in the past two years.
Online education filled a need in the professional education market during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Statista, “digital education and eLearning industries had a total value of $46 billion in 2016 and are expected to grow to $243 billion by 2022, according to research trends.”
EPI President, Scott Snider said about the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on exit planning education, “My business partner and father, Chris Snider, and I had to take a risk. Without evolving our programming to meet the need for professional education in the exit planning advisor community, we would never have been able to grow value in our business and in the advisor’s practices.”
Advancing Exit Planning Education
EPI Academy is Exit Planning Institute’s new interactive online learning platform. In the coming year, EPI Academy will house all of our virtual education, our updated Member Center, student dashboard, and interactive chatroom networking functionality.
We designed the platform in tracks that allow advisors to easily find the content and education they are looking for to enhance their practice. These include recommended learning and professional development plans. Scott Snider says EPI Academy is “continued professional development in a convenient way. It allows advisors a way to build and advance their own practice by completing courses at their own pace online.”
Exit Planning Institute’s purpose is to create Significant Companies. Scott says, “In order to help business owners create significant companies, we need CEPAs in our market who surround business owners. CEPAs must be armed with the best tools, knowledge, skills, and network. EPI Academy allows us to advance our CEPAs.”
