ExamFX does not currently offer continuing education courses in Washington.



Producers in Washington are required to take 24 hours of CE, including 3 hours of Ethics, every 2- year license term. The license term is based on the producer’s date of birth. No carry over credits are allowed and a student cannot take a course more than once within 3 calendar years from the original completion date. Please note: Course numbers for LTC and annuity courses are the same for all providers. The initial 8-hour LTC course and annuity training course will be considered duplicates if repeated within the 3-year period. The 4-hour LTC course is exempt from the repetition rule.


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.



• ANNUITY TRAINING - Producers must complete a one-time annuity training course approved for at least 4 hours before they may begin selling, soliciting, or negotiating annuity products. Resident producers who satisfy the training requirements of another state that are similar to the Washington law will be deemed compliant for the Washington requirement.

• LONG TERM CARE PARTNERSHIP TRAINING – Producers must complete an initial, state approved 8-hour Long Term Care Training course before they can sell or solicit Long Term Care Insurance. Producers must then complete a 4-hour ongoing training requirement every 24 months from the date the initial 8-hour training was completed in order to stay in compliance.

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



The following are exempt from Washington CE requirements:

• Resident adjusters and producers holding only limited credit insurance, travel insurance, or surety licenses are exempt from CE requirements.
