About CPMI Professional Development, Inc.
About Us

CPMI Professional Development, Inc. has been helping candidates prepare to take and pass the state Property and Casualty License or Life and Health Insurance License exam since 1998. Our multi-media materials have been proven successful, convenient, and time effective.

Realizing the need for insurance managers to have training available as soon as a producer candidate shows interest in signing with a company, CPMI developed a video seminar complete with videos, workbooks and audio CDs, allowing managers to have a quality self-study, classroom-like seminar available on demand. Later, we added the Exam Advantage test simulation CD, which gives candidates practice answering exam type questions. In 2005, at the request of a major insurance company and in an effort to meet the diverse needs of license candidates, CPMI developed the programs for study in both English & Spanish.

Recognizing the growing interest in on-line courses, CPMI added on-line courses in 2009, which includes our text, video, and test simulation programs and has quickly grown to be our most popular study method.

CPMI Professional Development, Inc. now offers insurance pre-license and continuing education study materials throughout the United States. We work with and provide the license training materials for numerous national insurance companies, insurance schools and colleges/universities.

Please let us know how we can be of assistance to you. Using our materials will give your candidates the Exam Advantage!
