Workforce Certificate (PSAV/Clock Hour program)

Mission/Purpose

The mission of the Insurance General Lines Agent program is to assist students in their quest for an Insurance Sales license by providing the required qualifying pre-licensing education to potential insurance agents. This program is based on state-mandated curriculum and hours which prepare students for the state licensing exam. By offering the coursework online it optimizes educational opportunities for both local and state-wide students.

The Program

Insurance agents provide a valuable, essential service. Helping clients to understand and determine the types of insurance protection they need is critical to their financial security.

This state-approved program prepares you to take the 2-20 General Lines Property and Casualty Insurance test for licensure. The curriculum includes property, automobile, workers compensation, health, and all forms of property and liability insurance concepts.

A minimum grade of "C" or better must be achieved in all professional coursework.

Certification/Licensing

This program prepares you to take the 2-20 General Lines Property and Casualty Insurance licensing exam. Students who have completed a correspondence course (the online 2-20 course at Florida State College at Jacksonville fulfills this) in insurance, 3 hours of which must be on the subject matter of ethics, which is regularly offered by accredited institutions of higher learning in this state or extensions thereof and approved by the department, must also have at least 6 months of responsible insurance duties as a substantially full-time bona fide employee in all lines of property and casualty insurance set forth in the definition of general lines agent under Florida Statute 626.015.

In order to obtain licensing as an insurance agent or adjuster in the state of Florida, a student will be expected to verify United States citizenship status or be a legal alien with work authorization from the United States Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services and provide a valid Social Security number. To ensure employability in the widest possible manner, all students should be prepared to provide this documentation prior to enrolling in the program. 

Please note that the State of Florida requires fingerprinting and a background check, which may prevent you from obtaining licensure. View the following information for applicants with a criminal history.
