Prelicense Training Online California
Thinking of an Insurance Career? It’s Easier Than You Think
There are not many industries you can enter as easily as insurance. In California, for example, insurance license requirements are quick to accomplish and relatively cheap. Just sign up for insurance prelicense courses through an approved provider, pass the state’s insurance license exam and pay your license fees.

The whole process can be done in as little as 10 days and costs only three to four hundred dollars. Compare this to other industries, like contractors, medical assistants, etc., where schooling can run thousands of dollars, involve costly bonds and months to complete. And, the potential for income as a licensed insurance agent is almost unlimited.
Where do you start?
Find a school that offers some counseling so you won’t take more training than you need. For example, a California Insurance License to sell life insurance or health insurance, requires a simple 32-hour training course. The suggestion for selling multiple lines of insurance . . . auto, home, commercial, life, health, etc, might be a 52-hour licensing course.
Easy online prelicense training. Get state exam ready in as little as 10 days.
Prelicense training is easy, especially online. You can come and go as you please. Just read the materials and let the online system keep track of your minutes. After the required time, you earn a Certificate of Completion. Now comes the hard part . . . preparing to take the California State Insurance Exam.
If you go to the right school, they will provide you what is called Exam Prep (materials needed to pass the State Exam). Don’t be fooled into thinking you don’t need this or being sold a course without it. You’re wasting your time. Likewise, don’t be told a simple crash course will get you by the state exam . . . that’s fake news. Hardly anyone . . . even seasoned agents . . . can pass the California Insurance License Exam without proper exam prep. Think you will pass the state exam watching videos? Not likely. You’ll want something searchable, like an actual textbook, that can help with your state exam preparation and for later, as a reference, when you become an insurance agent.
After you become a licensed insurance agent you will need to do continuing education. Again, this task is far easier to accomplish with insurance than almost any other industry. California insurance continuing education requirements, for example, require 24 hours of CE every two years. Courses are cheap ($35 or so) and can be completed online or by correspondence. And, they are open book, meaning you use the book to answer a few questions to complete courses. Anyone can do that! Other professions require closed book exams, CE by classroom (in person) or the need to have a proctor monitor your exam with price tags running in to the hundreds.
So, if you’re contemplating a new industry choice, take a look at insurance. You won’t find an easier and less expensive career path.
