IL Insurance Pre-Licensing - Education Requirements

For each major line of authority (Life, Health, Property, or Casualty), it is required to complete 20 hours of Pre-License education. Part of the Pre-License education must be completed with live instruction, and Real Estate Institute offers the live instruction in two options: a live class or a live webinar. 

Effective July 28, 2021, IDOI signed into law that insurance. Pre-License courses are permitted to be completed as a live webinar. Before that, this requirement was only allowed to be completed in person in a classroom. The remaining 12.5 hours may be completed self-study.
