Announcements


In response to Covid-19, states are in the process of making temporary changes to requirements for completing pre-licensing and continuing education, as well as making extensions for license renewals. As we receive information from each state’s insurance and real estate department, we will update this page to give you insight on what your state is changing to accommodate our nation’s circumstances, as well as what we plan to do to help you complete your courses as smoothly as possible.

If your state has dropped the proctoring requirement for self-study insurance continuing education exams, you may self-proctor your exam using the following process:
Textbook course with paper exam: fill out the Answer Sheet & Certification Form with YOUR information (instead of the monitor’s information) to the best of your ability.
Online course with online exam: fill out the proctor information fields with YOUR information (instead of the monitor’s information) and if a paper affirmation is required enter your information as both student and proctor with your signature and return to Cape for processing.

Please note that PSI, Prometric and Pearson Vue testing centers are steadily reopening in some states. Check their respective websites for more information.
