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 day 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.



Producers 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.



• 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 2-years from the initial completion date.

• ANNUITY SUITABILITY TRAINING – Idaho licensed producers must complete a state approved 4-hour Annuity Best Interest course before selling, soliciting or negotiating any annuity products. The ExamFX Annuity Suitability Best Interest Standard course satisfies this requirement.

• 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).



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

• STUDY BY TOPIC QUIZZES – ExamFX recommends that all Study by Topic Quizzes are passed with a 70% or better.

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



Your certificate of completion will be processed within two (2) business days and can be downloaded/printed from the "View Certificate(s)" link in the course launch portal. Completions are normally reported within two (2) business days of the certificate having been issued. There is a state charge of $1.00 per credit hour in order to report completions. This fee will be charged prior to accessing the certificate exam.



If you have satisfied the CE requirements of your home state, Idaho will consider that as satisfaction of the continuing education requirements. Non-residents who have not completed LTC training for their home state must comply with Idaho’s requirement.



The following are exempt from Idaho CE:

• Non-resident licensees in good standing with their home states.

• Limited lines producers.

• Agents on inactive status.

• Licensees on extended active military duty are exempt for the period of duty.



Producers must renew their license on the NIPR website before the license renewal date.
