Refund request received less than one week prior to class.
No refund will be issued, but fee can be transferred to a future class.
In order to receive your certificate, which will enable you to sit for the State licensing exam, you will have to:
Take a 25-question quiz per line of authority (Property, Casualty, Life, Accident & Health) and pass with a 70% (18 out of 25).
Attend 7 ½ hours of classroom instruction for each line of authority (Property, Casualty, Life, Accident & Health) that you have enrolled in will be tracked through attendance check-ins throughout the 7 ½ hours of instruction.
