Producers & Public Adjusters in Idaho must take 24 hours of continuing education, 3 of those hours being in ethics, every 2-year license term. License terms end on the last days of the licensee’s birth month every 2 years. No excess credit hours may be carried forward into the next license term.

Courses may not be repeated within 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 – Producers must meet an initial 8-hour requirement before selling LTC in the state of Idaho. After completing the initial 8-hour training, producers must then take a 4-hour LTC training course every 24 months from the initial completion date.

• ANNUITY TRAINING – Idaho producers must take a course approved for at least 4 hours before selling or soliciting any annuity products.

• FLOOD INSURANCE TRAINING – Idaho licensed producers who sell flood insurance are required to take a 3-hour one-time course approved for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

• STUDENT AND PROCTOR ATTESTATION – The student and proctor attestation must be completed following the certificate exam.

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 in order to report completions. This fee is charged to the student before the certification exam may be accessed.
