Nonresidents must complete training for LTC before selling LTC insurance products in Minnesota. Nonresidents must also complete a one-time annuity training course approved for at least 4 hours before selling annuity products. Nonresidents who satisfy the annuity training requirements in another state that is similar to Minnesota will be deemed compliant, but this will satisfy any of Minnesota’s CE requirements.
The following individuals are exempt from Minnesota CE requirements:
• A waiver of exemption time up to 90 days may be granted for good cause. It is
the responsibility of the producer to request the waiver on a form prescribed
by the commissioner.

• Nonresident producers whose home-state has a reciprocity agreement with Minnesota
