State CE and License Information

Identify the continuing education (CE) credits that are available in your state and learn about the courses and resources to help you maintain your license.

I do recommend The Institutes. Continuing education is the ying to the the job experience yang. They work together, with each other. One without the other is incomplete.

State Requirements

Our approach:

  • We request that students provide applicable licensing information when creating or updating their initial student records.
  • We require students to provide their licensing information before taking an approved exam. You can update your license information by accessing your profile.
  • CE will automatically be reported for approved courses for students whose information is on file at the time of the exam.
  • If a student declines CE, none will be reported.
  • It is the student's responsibility as a licensed producer or adjuster to know his or her state's CE requirements and procedures.

Access your state’s proctor and licensing requirements

Your test day could look a little different based on the state where you’re earning or renewing your license. See the our State Proctor Requirements to get details on the proctor requirements in your state.

  • As a general rule, the proctor of an exam that will be submitted for state CE credit:
    • Must be over 18 years old
    • Must be a disinterested third-party who has no financial interest in promoting a successful examination result
    • May be a co-worker provided there is no direct reporting relationship
    • Must not be anyone in direct line of authority with the examinee (not an employee, employer, or supervisor)
    • Must not have a family interest in the success of the examinee
    • Must not be a teacher or former pupil

Additional required information:

  • South Carolina CE applicants
  • Virginia CE Applicants
  • The Florida Department of Financial Services allows CE providers up to 21 days to report credits from the time a student passes an exam. After 21 days, CE credits will not be accepted unless CEU is at fault for the delay.
  • The State of Washington requires licensees to review the entire course before viewing or completing the exam.
  • Prometric Testing Centers satisfy state test administration and proctoring requirements.
  • Some states do not permit late reporting and some allow it with an extra fee. Any late filing fees and charges will be the sole responsibility of the student.
  • Contact the applicable state licensing entity or visit their website if you have questions regarding state CE requirements for exam proctoring and filing.
