Company History

Dohrn Insurance Training, Inc. was founded in July 1987 by current CEO and founder Doug Dohrn. Mr. Dohrn entered the insurance business as a salesman for a large eastern life insurance carrier in 1979. During the early 1980's, Doug was the national sales and product trainer for a small fraternal life insurer headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.

In July of 1987, Doug incorporated Dohrn Insurance Training with only two certified pre-licensing courses, no clients and an empty computer. Slowly he began to add courses and clientele and within five years Dohrn Insurance Training, Inc. was a leader in providing pre-licensing and continuing education courses in Illinois. Today, Dohrn Insurance Training, Inc. is thriving on a local and national level. Locally, thousands of Illinois insurance producers avail themselves of Dohrn's fine self study and classroom ethics and seminar training CE programs.
