When you register select the Life & Health license course.  Set firm schedule for yourself to complete the training in a 7 to 14 day period. It will take you 40 to 52 hours to complete the pre-license course and an additional 8 hours of study time.

The longer you take the harder it becomes and longer you it will be before you start making money.

Schedule your exam test date ASAP.  There are 2 reasons why you want to schedule your test date ASAP.  1) When you have a set date it provides additional motivation and accountability for yourself.  2) The testing facility may not have any test dates open for 2 to 3 weeks.  What you don’t want to happen is to complete your pre-license course and then find out that you can’t test for 2 or more weeks.  You’ll start to forget what you just learned.

Book your exam as soon as you register for the online course.

The following companies are authorized to provide the insurance exam testing. They are different for each state so check with each one to see what company is authorized in your state.
