New York Property & Casualty Online Courses Now Available - Get Started Today

Until recently, the New York statute required property and casualty producer licensing candidates to complete a 90-hour course and personal lines candidates to complete a 40-hour course in a traditional classroom setting.

We are pleased to announce that A.D. Banker is approved by the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) to offer a New York Property and Casualty Prelicensing Online Course and a New York Personal Lines Insurance Prelicensing Online Course.

How do I get a New York Property and Casualty insurance license?

To become licensed as a New York property and casualty insurance producer, you will need to demonstrate entry-level knowledge of the industry by passing a state licensing exam. The testable topics include homeowners and dwelling policies, personal auto insurance, inland marine insurance, watercraft coverage, the National Flood Insurance Program, umbrella coverage, commercial property insurance, commercial general liability, business owner's policies, farm insurance, commercial auto, crime, surety, and workers’ compensation. You will also be tested on general insurance concepts, insurance contract terminology, covered perils, the policy structure, conditions, exclusions, endorsements, and New York state-specific regulations.
