The Department of Insurance and Securities Regulation in Washington, D.C. has required that any individual who wants to become an insurance agent or broker must become licensed by completing a 40 hour pre-licensing course and then passing the licensing examination administered by Assessment Systems, Inc. (ASI). Due to the complex nature of insurance products and the many regulations agents and brokers must be familiar with, the DC insurance pre-licensing course is a necessary first step to becoming qualified to engage in the business of insurance.Insurance Licensing in DC
The Department of Insurance and Securities Regulation suggests self-study pre-licensing classes as an excellent way to complete the 40 hour requirement. CPMI Professional Development has many options available for individuals who desire to become licensed insurance agents or brokers. Students may take classes in Life, Health, Life/Health, and Property/Casualty (also known as P&C). These classes explain in a simple, clear, and easy to understand way the information needed to pass the exam. Hard copy text books are available, as well as online videos with an instructor and text books online. These can also be used in combination with each other, as learning through multiple methods often helps reinforce the content. Because CPMI understands the need to review the new knowledge thoroughly before taking the examination, the Exam Advantage program has also been developed to help students prepare by simulating the experience they will have while the exam is taking place. There are varying levels of difficulty, which allows the student to become more familiar and comfortable with the material before the exam. Questions similar to those that will be encountered on the licensing examination are contained in the Exam Advantage, so those who make use of this important program can feel confident they are prepared when exam time arrives.
After completing a test (which does not require supervision) to show completion of the pre-licensing requirement, the future agent or broker is prepared to take the ASI exam. No more than 1 year may pass before this licensing examination is taken and passed (after completion of the pre-licensing class). CPMI will be an important resource for those who hope to become licensed insurance agents and brokers in Washington, D.C.
