“We recommend the FINRA Series 6 class at Morton Learning Center to all of our associates who need licensing.  We have partnered with John for many years and have been extremely pleased with the pass rate of those associates who have attended class.  Pat takes complex information and breaks it down into simple and manageable parts, ensuring a valuable learning experience for our associates and one that helps them pass the exam!  Thanks Pat and everyone at Morton Learning Center!”
Michelle Price • Communications Director, Nationwide Insurance
“John’s organization prepares students better than any other we have used.  We recently had two career-change students test and their results were excellent!  I would not hesitate to recommend Morton-Barber.”
Dewey Hildebrand • Sales Manager
“The staff at Morton-Barber are the absolute best!  They patiently take the time to explain the licensing process to my recruits so that they don’t feel like they have to go it alone – even if the students choose the on-line study options!  I know that my recruits are always going to have a real live person to turn to when they need it most, not a faceless 800 number or ‘chat’ box.”
Bradley Roach • District Sales Manager, Western & Southern Life
“Couldn’t have passed the test without this class!  John is great!  I will send more students your way!”
Brian , Student
Taking the Series 6 preparation course with John Barber was critical in my preparation for the test! John walked our class through helpful charts, graphs and memorization techniques that helped reinforce key concepts. Taking this course really helped pull everything together for me and gave me the confidence I needed to succeed! Thanks, John!

I see why the success rate is so high, you’re truly blessed to have such an experienced individual with the ability to teach in such as way that captivates all learning types. Thanks again! I’ll be back in the future for Life & Health. I will be recommending Morton-Barber any chance I get!

The Morton Barber Learning Center classes were incredibly helpful in preparing for the FINRA exams. I came in new to the industry, and came out ready for the tests. The time invested was well worth it. John Barber does an exceptional job of investing in his students and making sure they understand and can remember the material. I passed the Series 6 and Series 26 exams, and highly recommend the courses to my friends and coworkers.
