Workforce Certificate (PSAV/Clock Hour program)

Mission/Purpose

The mission of the Life Insurance Marketing 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 class 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

This state-approved 60-hour program prepares you to take the Life, Health, and Variable Annuities Agent's (2-15) State License Examination. This helpful course is an important first step in building your successful career in insurance and financial services.

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

Certification/Licensing

Upon successful completion of this program, students will be prepared to take the Life, Health, and Variable Annuities Agent's Qualification State License Examination. Please note that the State of Florida requires fingerprinting and a background check, which may prevent you from obtaining licensure. Information for applicants with a criminal history is available at myfloridacfo.com/division/agents/licensure/general/priorcrimhist.htm.

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.

Note: Students are cautioned to pay particular attention to the following statements.
  • A student's graduation date will be the date of the end of the College term in which the student has fulfilled all academic requirements. (The removal of an incomplete grade does not affect students' graduation dates, since the grade change is effective at the end of the term in which the incomplete grade was assigned rather than the term in which the incomplete work was made up.)
  • Students who enter under the (2019/2020) catalog will be assigned to the degree or certificate requirements in effect during the 2019/2020 academic year. The student's assigned catalog year will remain in effect as long as the student maintains continuous enrollment. Changes to requirements as mandated by law or by rule of the District Board of Trustees may supersede this provision.
  • Many courses in this catalog have prerequisite requirements and/or corequisite courses listed in the course descriptions. Students are advised to be guided by these requirements.
