FAIA’s 20-44 Personal Lines Licensing Academy prepares each student to sit for the 20-44 state exam. 


During the pandemic , many agents received their temporary 20-44 personal lines license so they could work remotely outside the office.  One requirement to being afforded the temporary license was to sit for the state exam within six months and convert that temporary 20-44 to a permanent license. If an agent with a temporary 20-44 license does not convert that license within the six month time frame, they lose the temporary license and are left with just the 4-40, which does not allow working outside the office. 


Another benefit to taking the 20-44 Personal Lines Licensing Academy is preparing a 4-40 customer service representative with at least six months experience, to convert that license to a 20-44 license.


This academy will prepare each candidate that wants to convert a 4-40 to a 20-44 or converting a temporary 20-44 to a permanent 20-44 the foundation to sit for the state exam.
