So, I’m sitting on a hotel bed near Des Moines, Iowa as I write this. Tomorrow, I start a two-day class to learn Personal Lines Insurance (Monday) and Commercial Lines Insurance (Tuesday). Apparently, it’s two days of pretty intense learning with a lot of testing practice to go along with it. It’s all to prepare us for the Personal Lines and Commercial Lines tests… which I have scheduled for Wednesday at noon. Gotta tell ya… I’m a little nervous. I pass these tests, and I’m a licensed Insurance Agent. Don’t pass it? And I take the test again, until I do. But I really want to pass on the first try. This class is said to have about a 90% Pass Rate, so I’m optimistic. Cautiously optimistic. And nervous. But I’ve always been a good student, so I have confidence in my own abilities. I know I can do this. Still nervous, though. That’s a good thing, right? (wish me luck….)
And to answer your question… Personal Lines means home, auto, renters, stuff like that. Commercial Lines is, generally speaking, business insurance. There are a lot of categories that fall in there, but that’s the general idea.
