What Are The Pre-Licensing Education Requirements?

Pre­licensing education requirements help ensure a minimum level of knowledge about the products and services that agents, brokers and solicitors offer to the public. In addition, license candidates must understand and comply with the laws and rules that govern insurance. You must meet the following requirements before applying for a license.

Your sponsoring insurance company will give you a list of authorized pre­licensing schools. You may also send a written request to the Department for a current list. Include a self­addressed, stamped #10 envelope with your request. A pre­licensing education certificate is issued at the end of your course. The certificates must be printed on either state or school letterhead. The certificate is valid for one year. You must pass your license exam within 12 months of the date of the certificate.

You must bring your original pre­licensing education certificate, including the seal and the pre­license school number, to the testing center when you test. Altered certificates WILL NOT be accepted. If your certificate has been altered, contact your pre­licensing provider to get a corrected certificate prior to your testing.
