OnCourse Insurance & Risk Management was created to give the highest level of knowledge and expertise in  Insurance & Risk Management to our clients.  At OnCourse we have set out to create an insurance agency that is anything but ordinary.  Where traditional insurance agencies focus on the insurance product, OnCourse focuses on the client.  By being an independent agency, we can focus in on the operational goals of our clients and be a true partner.  At OnCourse we seek to understand where you are going and deploy the correct resources to help guide you and keep you OnCourse.
