1. Review the State Requirements

In order to renew your insurance license, you must complete the required continuing education hours for the lines of insurance that you are licensed in. All of the hours must be completed and reported prior to your license renewal date to avoid a lapse in your license.


Total Hours

24 hours biennially

Compliance Renewal Date

Effective 1/1/2022, renewal date is the last day of the licensee's birth month, biennially. Producers with birthdays in even months renew in even years, and those born in odd months renew in odd years.

You may also need to take specific courses or earn specific credit types to renew your license. These course completions will count toward the total hour requirement.

2. Register for and Complete Courses

Once you have determined the renewal requirements for your license, you can register for courses. Each course has an associated credit type; when registering for courses, select courses with credit types that will help to fulfill the renewal requirements for your license.

You must fulfill the course requirements for each of the courses to have them reported.

  • Online and Self Study courses are self-paced. You must review the course material and pass the Certification Exam at the end to receive credit.*


*Online and self study exams are required to be monitored by a disinterested third party (a person with no family or financial relationship).
