New to the livestock side of crop insurance? For any policy type you are interested in selling/servicing in the 2023 reinsurance year, you need to take the corresponding three-hour training course. For example, if you want to sell LRP and DRP in 2023, you will need to take the three-hour LRP training and the three-hour DRP training. Following completion of each, you will also need to take the corresponding exam.

Didn’t sell livestock in 2022, but want to sell again in 2023? Please register for the three-hour training corresponding to the policy type(s) you will sell/service. If you are selling more than one policy type, make sure to register for each corresponding three-hour training. Reach out to our Agency Services team (AgAgencySvs@sompo-intl.com) to see if you need to take any livestock exams.
