Each carriers requirements are slightly different but the details will be in their 2021 certification announcements, so be on the look out! If you need more details call us at (888) 622- 9122.
Study, focus and save time
Whether you’re a new or seasoned agent, it has been a year since this test has been taken. After looking at past attempts, we have found that agents perform better on their first try. While some carriers allow up to 6 attempts, repeatedly taking a 2 hour long test isn't how your time will be best spent.
Finish your certifications early
The sooner you finish your certifications, the sooner you will be able to order material. It is important that you receive your material in a timely manner, but especially before October 1st. In order to meet this deadline, we highly recommend being in the first round of pre-order requests.
Studying for AEP selling season doesn’t end with cert completion, that’s when the hard work begins. Studying the area you are selling in is important in order to better serve your clients.
