Question: There is a new website for agent training. Is this for CA agents or do we wait for covered Ca to get training and is just for the states without their own exchanges?
Answer: The Federal Facilitated Marketplaces (FFM) launched their online agent training for their exchanges in 33 states last Friday. California agents can take the training and be certified to participate in the FFMs, but it will not count for Covered California certification. The entire FFM training and exams can be completed online within 4 hours. Which raises the question: why is Covered California making is so difficult and why are they not making the training available sooner? You don’t have to be paranoid to wonder if they are deliberately constraining the number of agents able to participate, at least in the early going.
