    • The course provider will notify PSI when the student is eligible to take the broker license exam.
  • Obtain proof from the student that they have applied for a broker license with the Agency.
  • Notify PSI, according to the requirements and instructions of PSI, when a student has successfully completed the broker pre-license courses​. This makes the student eligible to take the broker license exam.
