A Brick insurance agency is partnering with the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of New Jersey organization to help provide American veterans with a free insurance agent course, licensing exam and access to a career center.
The program, launched on Memorial Day weekend, provides verified U.S. military veterans complimentary access to the online course, which is required prior to taking the state insurance exam. Upon completion of the course, veterans may proceed to take the state exam and subsequently apply for their initial license; both of which are refundable by IIABNJ upon completion.
“As a member of IIABNJ, it is an honor to help bring this program to our state’s veterans,” said Jacki Frank, owner of Tri-County Agency in Brick. “We are excited to see future leaders come out of this program and begin a successful career in the insurance industry.”
Veterans who are interested in learning more about the program may visit www.iiabnj.org/veterans or contact IIABNJ at 609-587-4333 for a verification location nearest them. To gain access to the program, veterans will need to provide current photo identification, honorable discharge papers (DD-214 form), proof of New Jersey residency, and a current resume.
“Tri-County Agency of Brick understands that U.S. Veterans deserve support as they re-enter the civilian world. We believe that by supporting such an honorable program, we can not only assist with this initiative, but can help perpetuation the insurance industry with qualified individuals,” said Frank.
