Licensed Insurance Agent

Insurance Sales & Service Representative Program - 40 Hours

For anyone who is interested in becoming an insurance agent, attending this course could be your first step to a new career. Palo Alto College is partnering with State Farm agents to find and train individuals prepared to help customers obtain the insurance coverage that is best suited for them. This course covering ten evenings in five weeks allows you to learn the information to prepare you to take the Texas Department of Insurance exam for State of Texas Licensure.

In addition to insurance practice basics, enabling you to recognize the most appropriate policy choices for your customers, included will be instruction in customer service, ethics, and communication skills - all essential for leading insurance agents and their team members in this competitive industry.

Although completion of this course does not guarantee employment, it can help prepare you to competitively interview for a team member position with a State Farm independent Contractor Agent*.

Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to take the State of Texas Insurance Agent's Licensing Exam administered by Prometrics. Final licensing will be based on the exam plus answers provided on an application form and a background check on all applicants. Additional information can be found on the Prometrics' Texas webpage: http://www.prometric.com/Texas/default.htm  

The median salary for insurance agents with two years experience in the San Antonio area is $41,000 per year or the equivalent of $19.70 per hour in hourly wages.

To inquire about rules and regulations for State of Texas licensure for insurance agents, contact the Texas Department of Insurance at (800) 252-7031 or go to: http://www.tdi.state.tx.us/licensing/index.html  

This class meets for 4 hours per class, two nights per week for five weeks. Total instruction time is 40 hours. Classes are held at Palo Alto College, 1400 W. Villaret Blvd, San Antonio, TX 78224.

* State Farm agents are independent contractors who hire their own employees. State Farm agents' employees are not employees of the State Farm Insurance Companies.

 

Scholarship available for ALL students who apply for the job entry insurance program.
