Producers in Colorado must take 24 hours of continuing education, 3 of those hours being in ethics every 2-year license term. Renewal must be met by the last days of the licensee’s birth month. Producers born in an even year will renew on even years, odd birth years will renew every odd year. Up to 12 hours of excess CE credits may be carried over ONLY if the courses were taken within the last 120 days of the previous license cycle. Ethics credits will be carried over as general credit. Courses may not be repeated within 2 years of the original completion date.



Producers must take 18 hours in the lines they are licensed for, 3 hours must be in ethics, and the remaining 3 hours can be taken in any category. Dual line licensed producers may split the required hours between both lines of authority or choose to accrue all credit in one line of authority that they are licensed for Property or Personal Lines licensees must complete 3 hours of homeowners continuing education.



• LONG TERM CARE INSURANCE TRAINING – Producers must meet an initial 16-hour requirement before selling LTC in the state of Colorado. 8-hours of the LTC can be completed via online or self-study. The remaining 8-hours MUST be completed in a classroom setting and shall consist of material specific to the LTC Partnership program. After completing the initial 16-hour training, producers must then take an ongoing 5-hour LTC training course every 2 calendar years from the initial completion date.
