Exam FAQs

How do I take an exam?

How you take your exam will depend on whether you need Continuing Education (CE) credit for your state insurance license.

  • If you do need CE credit, you will need to purchase a CE-eligible module package. This package includes the module in the online eLearning format and a registration for the corresponding proctored exam (can be taken either in-person at a testing center near you or remotely online from the comfort of your home or office).
  • If you do not need CE credit, you will need to purchase a non-CE eligible module package. This package includes both the module and lesson exams all in the online eLearning format. You can take the lesson exams as many times as necessary to pass.


I have other professional designations. Are there any waivers available for PLUS modules?
Yes, certain core modules can be waived based on other designations and educational background. Click here to view available waivers.

To receive a waiver, the following steps must be completed:

  1. Select the appropriate RPLU Waiver here (click on Page 2) and submit with payment
  2. Upload the required documentation, transcripts, or certificates under the Document Uploads section of the Member Dashboard

Each waiver application is $75. This fee is non-refundable and does not guarantee approval of the waiver application.

I completed exams under the old 5-part RPLU designation program a long time ago. Do I get any cross credit towards the current RPLU program?
Exams based on the original 5-part RPLU program were discontinued January 1, 2009. RPLU students who were not able to complete the designation under the old program are automatically given credit for corresponding exams under the current program.
