We offer both insurance pre-licensing and continuing education insurance courses through Continuing Education.
The office of the Commissioner of Insurance requires applicants in the major lines of Property, Casualty, Life or Accident and Health insurance in Wisconsin to complete pre-licensing education. Therefore, anyone signing up for a license exam date must have already completed the education requirement.
Those candidates applying for an exam in the limited lines of Auto, Title and Credit Life/Credit Accident and Health, and those who have completed a two-year Wisconsin Technical College degree in insurance, or a four-year college degree in business with an insurance emphasis are exempt from the pre-licensing education requirement.
The course content provided by approved schools includes eight hours of study of the Principles of Insurance, General Wisconsin Insurance Laws and Ethics. Once this eight hours is completed, it need not be repeated for each line. Twelve hours regarding Policies, Terms and Concepts, and line-specific insurance law must be completed for each major line. Therefore, a candidate applying for all four major lines would be required to complete a total of 56 hours of education prior to testing.
Once you have received your license in any of the lines of insurance, you may take courses towards your continuing education credits. We are an approved State of Wisconsin Insurance Continuing Education provider and offer several courses each year.
More information is available at the State of Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance.
