How To Earn An Insurance License And Become An Insurance Agent

How To Earn An Insurance License And Become An Insurance Agent

ABTrainingCenter can help you learn how to earn your insurance license and start your career as an Insurance Agent.

Be aware that doing so requires you to take an insurance pre-licensing course and pass your state's pre-licensing exam. Below are the steps to help learn your insurance licensing requirements and help you decide which insurance licensing classes are best for you.

Step 1: Decide What Kind Of Insurance You Want To Sell

There are several types of insurance licenses. For instance, you can sell life, health, or property and casualty, so the first thing you want to do is decide what type or types of insurance you would like to specialize in. Here are the most common types of insurance licenses:
  • Life Insurance License:
    You sell policies and annuities related to providing for a beneficiary upon the death of the insured
  • Health Insurance:
    You sell medical, disability, Medicare supplement, and long-term care policies
  • Property And Casualty Insurance:
    Commonly referred to as P&C, you typically sell homeowner, commercial property, auto, workers compensation, and professional liability policies
FYI: Keep in mind that while you can sell more than one type of insurance, you must take an insurance pre-licensing course and pass the accompanying insurance licensing exam for each type.

Step 2: Understand The Requirements To Become An Insurance Agent

After you've decided what type of insurance license you want to earn, the next question most people ask is "What are the requirements to become an insurance agent?" Below are the basic insurance licensing requirements for earning your insurance license. Generally speaking, you must:
  • Be at least 18 years old to become an insurance agent
  • Take an insurance pre-licensing course for each type of insurance you want to sell
  • Pass your state's insurance licensing exam for each type of insurance you want to sell
Note: Most states also require you to pass a background check before being granted your insurance license. The process varies by states and, in some cases, includes fingerprinting, which can usually be done at your state's testing provider

Step 3: How To Meet You Insurance Pre-Licensing Requirements, Then Pass Your State Exam

Pre-licensure requirements vary from state to state, so ABTrainingCenter offers insurance pre-licensing courses in several formats to help meet your pre-licensing and exam prep needs.

Specifically, we offer Life & Health pre-licensing insurance courses and Property & Casualty pre-licensing insurance classes in live, online, and self-study formats in most states.
