1. Complete a Prelicensing Course

If you would like to sell insurance as an insurance producer in Michigan, you must pass a licensing exam. To prepare for the licensing exam, you must take a state approved insurance course. Insurance prelicensing courses are provided by A.D. Banker & Company in many different formats: classroom, web classes, online courses, or self-study. All courses are cross-referenced with the exam content outline.

 

To satisfy the requirements for your course, you will need to pass a Certification Exam.  The Certification Exam is not monitored.  After passing the Certification Exam with a 70% or greater, you will receive a Certificate of Completion and your education will be reported to the state insurance department.  Prelicensing education is valid for one year from the date of completion; you will need to take and pass your state exam within this timeframe.
