NYS Partnership Agent Training

As of January 1, 2021, there are no insurers offering new Partnership policy purchases in New York State.  Historically, the Partnership Agent Training Certification Course was required for any insurer to sell or market NYS Partnership policies.  The Partnership training and certification is still available to agents who wish to refresh their knowledge of the NYS Partnership requirements as well as gain 6 CE credits toward their licensure.”

We are in the process of updating our online agent training course.We expect our training website to be functioning within the upcoming weeks.We apologize for the inconvenience. 

Provider Approval #NYPO-100417

In order to sell or market New York State Partnership for Long-Term Care insurance, the New York State Department of Health requires New York State licensed agents to complete an online training and pass an online monitored exam to become Partnership-certified. The training takes about six (6) hours to complete.

The training and exam are not a requirement of the New York State Department of Financial Services. However, the New York State Department of Financial Services has approved this training for six (6) continuing education (CE) credits which may be used for license renewal by agents and brokers who complete the training and pass the exam.

New York State licensees eligible for continuing education credits are:

•  BR (Brokers)

•  C1 (Life Consultants)

•  LA (Life/Accident and Health Agents)

•  LB (Life Broker)

•  LSB (Life Settlement Broker)

•  PC (Property and Casualty Agents)

If you are already certified to sell or market Partnership insurance it is not mandatory to do this training. If you would like to do the training without receiving CE credits or paying the $100 fee you can still sign into the training as a refresher.
