1. Complete a Pre-licensing Course
If you would like to sell insurance as an insurance producer in Maryland, you must pass a licensing exam. To prepare for the licensing exam, you must take a state approved insurance course. 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, Course completion will be reported to PSI. You will be able to schedule your exam within 1-2 business days of the reporting. Pre-licensing education is valid for one year from the completion date; you will need to take and pass your state exam within this timeframe.
- Candidate’s education is only valid for six (6) months.
- Candidates who complete the pre-licensing course and become eligible to take the exam will have 6 months to successfully take and pass both portions of the appropriate licensing exam.
- Candidates who do not successfully take and pass the examinations within the six (6) month period, must retake the pre-licensing course and apply to retake both portions of the examination.
