Maryland Insurance License EducationInsurance Career Training & Maryland Agent Licensing
Maryland insurance licenses are regulated by the Maryland Insurance Administration (MIA). All agents are first required to pass an insurance training course and then a written examination for each insurance line (e.g., one for Life, and a second for Health), after which they can pay a small fee and apply for their license.Insurance Licensing for Maryland Producers

The state of Maryland issues licenses to individuals and organizations to act in the role of Insurance Agents (or Producers), Surplus Lines Brokers, Insurance Advisers, Public Adjusters, as well as third party administrators. Organizations that can be licensed include legally registered corporations, professional associations, partnerships, limited liability companies or limited liability partnerships. One or more licensed Maryland insurance producers should be elected by an organization to represent it as its primary contact with the state.
Agents are required to obtain their license in each major insurance line that they intend to sell, solicit, or negotiate. MD agents can obtain licenses in Life, Health, Property, Casualty, Personal Lines, or Variable. While there is no mandatory examination provided by the state for the issuance of insurance in the Variable line of authority, agents must obtain their FINRA (NASD) securities license before applying. There are also several limited lines available in MD: Auto, Travel, Credit Products, Title, and Motor Vehicle Rental.
CPMI provides licensing services nationwide, and our insurance classes have been approved in most states that allow online instruction to qualify for state classroom requirements. We do not currently provide in-class training, though, and for that reason our courses are intended only as supplemental learning packages in those states that have in-class classroom requirements. Our courses are for Life & Health, and Property & Casualty (also known as P&C).
These excellent tools will assist you to memorize definitons, rules, insurance products and concepts, and review for your MD insurance licensing exam. Then follow up the learning phase and see that you are ready to sit for the state insurance license exam by using the Exam Advantage practice test simulation program.
