Advisory: Maryland Insurance Administration Moving to One-Part Insurance Licensing Examinations

BALTIMORE - Effective October 21, 2021, all Maryland licensing examinations will be administered in one part which will cover both State and General content, rather than two parts. The current two-part licensing exams will no longer be offered after October 13, 2021.
 
In preparation for this change, there will be a blackout window, and candidates will not be able to take a licensing exam between October 14, 2021, and October 20, 2021. Therefore, candidates who are required to take and pass a licensing examination to be qualified for licensure must pass both parts of the exam by October 13, 2021, or they will have to take and pass the new one-part exam.
 
Prometric, the Maryland Insurance Administration’s pre-licensing services and examinations vendor, will open scheduling for the new one-part exam beginning September 21, 2021.
 
Additionally, effective October 21, 2021, the names of some the licensing exams will change as indicated in the following chart. These exam name changes reflect the Producer Licensing Model Act (PLMA) major lines of authority names.
 
Current Exam Names​ New Exam Names as of October 21, 2021​
Health Producer​ ​Accident and Health or Sickness Producer
Life and Health Producer Combo​ ​Life and Accident and Health or Sickness Producer - Combo
Adviser Life and Health​ ​Adviser Life and Accident and Health or Sickness
 
Additional information and updated materials, including revised Exam Content Outlines, will be made available before the change in the exam format becomes effective.  Information about the upcoming changes will be available on the Producer page of the Maryland Insurance Administration’s website: https://insurance.maryland.gov/Producer/Pages/default.aspx. You may contact Prometric by visiting their website: https://www.prometric.com/maryland/insurance or calling 1-800-610-1174 .   You may also contact the Maryland Insurance Administration’s Producer Licensing Hotline at 1-800-492-6116 with any questions.
