Insurance Continuing Education
Ashland, New Richmond, Rice Lake, Superior
We offer both insurance prelicensing and continuing education insurance courses through WITC Continuing Education. 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.
All insurance prelicensing and continuing education courses are currently offered in person at the WITC-New Richmond campus and via Interactive Television (ITV) to the Rice Lake, Superior, Ashland, and Hayward campuses. The location of the instructor is subject to change. Please note that prelicensing and continuing education courses are not approved for the State of Minnesota. If you have questions about insurance course registration, please contact Sara at 800.243.9482, extension 6212 at least one week prior to the course start date.
This course is designed to meet the Section A, eight-hour, pre-licensing and continuing education requirement. This includes the areas of the principles of insurance, general Wisconsin insurance laws and ethics.
Prelicensing Education Requirements
The Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance requires applicants in the major lines of Property, Casualty, Life or Accident and Health insurance to complete prelicensing 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 prelicensing 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 these eight hours are 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.
