Pre-Licensing Training

Once you have decided to pursue a career as an insurance agent, you will first need to become licensed. The Maryland Insurance Administration requires that all applicants for an insurance agent's license take an approved pre-licensing course. Each of the four major license types (Property, Casualty, Life, Accident/Health) requires 20 hours of prelicensing study. Big I Maryland offers prelicensing courses for all of these licenses.

  • Property & Casualty: given in a 40-hour classroom setting or self-study
  • Life & Health: offered self-study
