Effective January 1, 2009, insurance producers must complete at least twenty-four (24) credit hours of study every two (2) years on or before the last day of their birth month. This is a change from prior law requiring renewal on the date of issuance of the original license.
Three (3) hours of the twenty-four (24) must be ethics credits each renewal period.
Licenses can not be renewed without continuing education. If continuing education credit documentation is not received in the Agent Licensing Section of the Department of Commerce and Insurance prior to the last day of your birth month biennially, your license will become immediately inactive.
Example 1 - A producer last renewed his current license in August of 2007 and his birthday is in September. He will renew his current license prior to September 30, 2009. The next time his license will need to be renewed will be September 30, 2011.
Example 2 - A producer last renewed her current license in August of 2007 and her birthday is in July. She will renew her license prior to July 31, 2009. The next time her license will need to be renewed will be July 31, 2011.
Exemptions from Continuing Education
Only producers who have been licensed continuously since January 1, 1994 are exempt from continuing education.
