Pre-Licensing Courses

Once you have decided to pursue a career as an insurance agent, you will need to become licensed. The North Carolina Department of Insurance 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. IIANC offers prelicensing courses for all of these licenses. The passing rate for our students is consistently above the state average. 

  • Property and Casualty – given in a 40-hour classroom setting
  • Life and Accident, Health & Sickness – Offered online or self-study
  • Long-Term Care/Medicare Supplement -  Offered online or self-study

*NEW* Virtual Pre-Licensing Program for 2021

We are pleased to announce our brand new option to satisfy the North Carolina Pre-Licensing education requirements (PLE) to obtain your Property & Casualty licenses. This new option gives you the benefit of flexibility and convenience as you can take a live, instructor-led NC PLE course in a webinar format right from your office or home computer.
The class runs from Monday – Friday for two weeks.  Each day students attend a live, instructor-led four-hour session to satisfy the 40-hour North Carolina Pre-Licensing Education Requirement (PLE). 
Class components include:
  • Interactive format so you can talk “live” to the instructor via the chat feature and the instructor responds to submitted questions as they cover the course material/topics.
  • Hard copy course book mailed out to each student prior to class.  The book allows students to take notes and follow along with the webinar on their computer.
  • An interactive study session is provided where students can all talk freely to ask questions and review the material at the end of the course.
  • An additional online learning tool called the Exam Simulator is provided to all students which allows them to take practice quizzes.  This is included in the cost of the course.  A code is given out to students to access the study tool.
