Former North Dakota Regulator Joins Insurance Industry Service Leader

Prometric®, the industry leader in service excellence for insurance-based testing and assessment, has named Kelvin Zimmer as Manager for Continuing Education (CE), Insurance and Regulatory Compliance. In this role, Mr. Zimmer will be responsible for a number of key strategic activities:

  • Overseeing relationships with state regulators, departmental managers of CE services, CE processors and CE coordinators
  • Leading discussions on relevant insurance topics for premier industry groups and conferences, such as the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), Securities and Insurance Licensing Association (SILA) and Insurance Summit
  • Providing governance on CE course outlines, course renewals and course instructors, as well as assigning CE credit hours to providers meeting required standards
  • Conducting annual audits to protect each state’s licensing credibility

“Kelvin’s thorough knowledge of continuing education for licensed agents and the insurance industry will strengthen operational and service capabilities for our clients as we seek to help regulators achieve their missions while advancing testing and assessment in the insurance industry,” said Holly Dance, Prometric vice president and insurance industry specialist. “Prometric is pleased to welcome Kelvin to the Prometric family.”

Mr. Zimmer’s more than a decade of regulatory experience includes coverage of all aspects of producer licensing operations, CE course management and state-based annual insurance exam reviews for every line of authority. A proponent of ensuring only honest test takers are allowed to be tested, Mr. Zimmer’s court testimony was instrumental in mandating the fingerprinting of state-based North Dakota resident producers who wished to be licensed. He also is a champion of veterans and sought—and obtained—reimbursement of testing fees incurred by North Dakota veterans.
