Multi-Year Partnership Will Deliver More Than 6,000 Exams Annually

HARTFORD, CT--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2015) - Prometric, a trusted market-leading test development and delivery solutions provider for state-based systems, today announced the renewal of a multi-year partnership with the Connecticut Insurance Department. The contract was awarded after an open and competitive bidding process.

"The licensing of insurance professionals safeguards consumers seeking to protect their families, income, property and personal health from unforeseen events," said Prometric CEO Michael Brannick. "By successfully completing their exams and continuing education requirements, insurance agents demonstrate that they have the knowledge, skills and abilities to provide trusted consultation to consumers while earning higher incomes and career opportunities through their accreditation. We are pleased to continue our work with the Connecticut Insurance Department, and continuing to provide this public service for years to come."
