The Insurance Center at Drake University, Des Moines, Iowa, long known for its involvement in agent license examination development, will be ITC's exam development partner for exam content and question writing.ITC will establish an exam site in Salt Lake City for the administration of examinations. The tests will be administered in a fully automated method that provides individuals with daily opportunities to take the examinations and to find out immediately whether they have passed or failed.
