Anyone who meets the requirements to be exempt from the examination will still be required to complete the 20hour prelicensing course and the12hour prelicensing code and ethics course.
Personal lines broker agent continuing education will be required on a calendar year basis. The agent will be required to complete 10 hours of continuing education each calendar year. The personal lines license will be issued for a two year fixed term that begins on January 1 of the first year and ends on December 31 of the second year.
