INSURANCE CONTINUING EDUCATION
If you are an insurance producer in Louisiana, continuing education is a part of the job. In fact, by state law, certain continuing education courses must be completed before you are eligible to renew your license. Knowing how important this is to you, choosing the right insurance school is an important decision.
Register for your continuing education at Donaldson with confidence, as all courses offered are fully approved and carry the credit that you will need.
CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
Continuing education is only required for resident insurance producers and adjusters. This includes insurance adjusters that have designated Louisiana as their home state for the purpose of licensing. The requirements are as follows:
1. Producers licensed for one or more lines of life, health and accident, property, casualty or personal lines – 24 hours
2. Producers licensed for line of bail bonds – 12 hours
3. Producers licensed for line of title – 12 hours
4. Adjuster license – 24 hours
If you are an insurance producer with the lines of Property, Casualty, or Personal lines, your 24 hours of continuing education must include at least three (3) hours in flood.
All insurance producers in Louisiana must complete a minimum of three (3) hours of ethics continuing education.
Those licensed as title insurance producers must include two (2) hours on the topic of consumer financial protection as part of their continuing education.
Under Louisiana law (La. R.S. 22:1575) an individual producer may not sell, solicit or negotiate long-term care insurance unless the individual has complied with the long-term care training requirements. This requirement is separate and distinct from the continuing education requirement listed above. The training courses may be submitted to the Louisiana Department of Insurance by the provider to receive continuing education credits. If the courses are approved for continuing education credit, they may be applied to the minimum requirements listed above.
La R.S. 22:1576, recently enacted by Act 612 of the 2012 legislative session, requires individual producers engaged in the sale of annuity products to complete a one-time four (4) hour training course. This requirement is separate and distinct from the continuing education requirements for a licensee and applies to both resident and nonresident producers. The requirement applies to all types of annuity products.
