4-40 to 2-20 Conversion
In partnership with Florida Insurance University
This 40-hour course qualifies a student for the 2-20 licensing exam. This course is available to any 4-40 license who has held the 4-40 license for at least one year. The course takes the student through the FAIA General Lines Manual with questions and practice tests and successful completion will allow the student to take the state test without taking the 200 hour pre-licensing course.
The General Lines, Adjuster & Industrial Fire Manual is the required textbook for the course and can be obtained from the Florida Association of Insurance Agents (FAIA) at their website or by calling (850) 893-4155. Florida Insurance University will also order the textbook for students at the time of registration. Cost $40 + tax and shipping.
