REQUIRED HOURS

• Alaska licensed Producers and Adjusters are required to take 24 hours of CE, including 3 hours of ethics, every 2-year license term.

The license term is every 2 years based on the licensee’s date of birth. Licensees who are born in an even year will renew on even years, those born in an odd year will renew on odd years. Alaska allows 8 excess credits to be carried forward into the next licensing period. A course may not be taken for credit more than once in a 2-year license term

CATEGORY RESTRICTIONS

Students may take an approved course in any line of authority to obtain their Continuing Education credits, but it is recommended that they take courses pertaining to their license type.

SPECIAL TRAINING

• LONG TERM CARE TRAINING - Before a Producer can sell or solicit Long Term Care Insurance they must complete an 8-hour course in Long Term Care Training. Producers must then complete a 4-hour ongoing training requirement every 24 months following the initial completion date of the 8-hour training.

• ANNUITY TRAINING – Alaska producers must take a course approved for at least 4 hours before selling or soliciting any annuity products. This requirement is separate from the indexed annuity requirement.

• FLOOD INSURANCE TRAINING – Alaska licensed producers who sell National Flood Insurance Policies are required to take a one-time 3-hour course on Flood Insurance.

COURSE PRESENTATION

• PROGRESSIVE – Students must progress through the curriculum by topic.

• CERTIFICATION EXAM – Students are required to pass the certification exam with a 70% or better.

• STUDY BY TOPIC QUIZZES – ExamFX requires that all Study by Topic quizzes be passed with at least a score of 1%.

• STUDENT ATTESTATION – The student attestation must be completed following the certificate exam.

CERTIFICATES OF COMPLETION AND REPORTING

Students may print their certificate directly from the course after completing the curriculum requirements. Completions are reported to state entities within two (2) business days of the certificate having been issued. The state charges $1.00 per credit hour and Sircon charges $1.00 per course in order to report completions. These fees are charged to the student before the certification exam may be accessed.

NONRESIDENT PRODUCERS

Nonresidents who have completed their CE requirement in their home state will be deemed compliant for Alaska’s continuing education requirement. Nonresident Adjusters are exempt if they have complete the requirements in their home state and remain in good standing; however, being licensed and remaining good standing in their home state does not deem the producer compliant if there is no adjuster CE requirement. If that is the case, adjusters must comply with Alaska’s adjuster continuing education requirement.

CE EXEMPTIONS

The following are exempt from Alaska CE requirements:

• Nonresidents who have met their home state CE requirements.

• Producers who were licensed prior to January 1st 1980

• An individual who holds a temporary license

• A producer who holds a limited lines license, is retired, or travel license
