In a world where experience seems needed to get any job you actually want, we make it easy to get your foot in the door! To apply, you only need to meet a few simple guidelines. You must be at least 18 years of age, a resident of the State of Florida, and a U.S. citizen or legal alien who possesses a work authorization from the United States.
See Florida Statute 626.221 (j) where certification by All‑Lines Training
(a brand of AdjusterPro) is approved as an alternative to the state exam.
The online CIR Designation course was exactly what I needed - a simple and fast means to my 4-40 CR License. Thanks!
"This was one of the best online courses I have taken. I love the fact that it allowed me to go back over the parts that I needed help with. I also like the fact that you can go to the test and see the parts you really needed to study. I will definitely be using them to further my insurance education. #thumbsup"
"The study modules were packed with information. The course itself is very easy to follow and understand. The quizzes are extremely helpful to prepare you for the final exam."
This license is required to work for most insurance agents and agencies in Florida. It’s designed for salaried employees of insurance agencies, not agents or brokers who earn the majority of their pay from sales commissions. The 4-40 license allows you to make quotes, explain policies to clients, and provide valuable assistance to sales agents.
As a customer rep, you’ll handle many of the day-to-day tasks for the agent or agency. You might discuss policies and coverages with customers, answer their questions, handle personal information of clients and potential clients, or make policy changes. Customer Reps can also sell insurance, as long as they are under the supervision of a licensed general agent. Other responsibilities include developing good relationships with policyholders, upselling coverage, and encouraging customers to refer friends and family.
Customer Reps are often seen as the ‘face’ of the agency since they communicate with policyholders and would-be policyholders on a regular basis. They can have a huge impact on customer satisfaction and retention, (the main goal of any insurer) so they are incredibly important. Customer Reps can make commissions, however, commissions cannot total more than half of their annual pay.
To apply for your Florida 4-40 license, you must complete a state-approved prerequisite course, usually referred to as a “designation.” Our designation course is labeled CIR which stands for Customer Insurance Representative.
Once you complete our CIR course, you’re ready to apply for your 4-40 License.
– Submit your application for licensing through MyProfile
– Process and submit fingerprints: Fingerprinting Requirements
– Submit Proof of Citizenship Documentation
– Log-in to MyProfile to see if your license has been issued
For complete licensing details, see FLDFS Licensing Information.
Once you’ve completed our Florida CIR Course and passed the included exam, you’ll need to pay the following state application fees.
– Licensing and Application Fee: $50
– License ID Fee: $5
– Fingerprint Processing Fee: $48.55
The simple answer: YES!
Today, insurance is a part of every aspect of our lives. The industry is one of the largest in the world and employs millions of people in hundreds of different jobs and roles. No matter what your interest, there is likely a position in the insurance industry to suit your talents.
On a smaller scale, the 4-40 License is a great way to break into this booming industry. Working as a customer rep will help you learn about the industry and insurance policies and give you real-world experience should you decide to become a full-fledged agent. Once you have taken our CIR Designation course and worked for 1 year as a licensed 4-40 rep, you qualify to apply for the 2-20 general agent license. In comparison, those who do not have their 4-40 license must take a 200-hour course and pass the state exam before applying.
You must renew your 4-40 License every two years. While there is no renewal fee, license-holders do need to complete 10 hours of continuing education every renewal period and submit proof to the state in order to stay compliant.
The 10-hours of CE must consist of the 5-hour Florida Law and Ethics Update and an additional 5 hours of elective credits.
We do not currently offer continuing education courses for the Florida 4-40 license.
