Hi, my name is Mitchell Smith, managing partner of Universal Insurance services and Universal Partners. Today, we are going to discuss how to get a license to become an insurance agent. If you decided to get a license to become an insurance agent we have to first decide for what kind of insurance you are trying to sell. And figure out are you sure you want to do this. If it's property and casualty insurance what I mean things like homeowners and P and C type products you have to contact a property and casualty provider. You have to be sponsored whether it's life or P and C to get a license. Once you get that sponsorship you can then look online for your local state and the department of revenue or the department of insurance and it will help you along on where to take a study course. And you can do the study course online these days, anywhere from 40 to a 100 plus hours. And then sometimes they'll make you take a short course outside of the internet in an actual facility. After you pass that course you can then sit for an exam within 30 days. And typically that will be at a major center somewhere across the country in your area. You would go online, study for the exam. Set your time and go sit for it. You get a pass fail and you are ready to go. However you must have a sponsorship to do that. So make sure before you get your license you've spoken to a carrier which is some sort of provider to make sure it is something you can do. Thanks for watching today's discussion on getting a license for becoming a life insurance agent.
