So you are thinking about getting into the insurance field, but you aren't sure. You might want to dip your toe in the insurance waters and see how it feels.
The logical starting place is with a 4-40 Customer Representative license. With this license, you:
- Can work in an insurance agency right away
- Make money while you "test the waters"
- Gain experience that can be applied to gaining an agent license later
