NJ Announces Remote Exams for Insurance Producer Licensing
The New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance announced that starting Sept. 16, individuals who want to take the licensing exams to become insurance producers and public adjusters will be able to do so remotely. This will provide people who want to work in the field more flexibility to access examinations during the COVID-19 emergency. The new remote exam option will remain in place permanently, in addition to the current option available to license seekers to take the examination in-person at a testing site.
Insurance Commissioner Marlene Caride said, “The new remote testing option will allow job seekers who want to work in insurance the flexibility to take the licensing examination remotely rather than in-person at a time when it is most needed. This system enhancement is particularly important given the COVID-19 emergency. It is also an improvement that will modernize the department's licensing process and benefit those seeking employment as insurance producers and public adjusters now and over the long term.” The remote testing launch includes nine license qualifying examinations and all of the remote license examinations are also available in Spanish.
