Continuing education (CE) is required for all resident Oregon agents with life, health, property, casualty, personal lines, surplus lines, or variable life lines of authority.
CE hours are due by the last day of the renewal month. However, by law, CE providers have 15 days to enter your credits. If you wait until the last minute, your renewal will be late. The Division strongly recommends you become CE compliant the month prior the expiration date of your license.
Each two-year renewal cycle requires 24 hours of CE credit. Of these:
- At least three hours must be professional ethics
- At least three hours must be on Oregon statutes and administrative rules, including recent changes
- No more than four hours is allowed for approved agency management courses
- Not more than eight hours CE credit will be given in any one day
Adjusters or consultants
No continuing education is required for adjusters or consultants.
Supplemental training is required before selling long-term care insurance, flood insurance, or annuities.
The appointing insurers must verify that agents who sell these products are trained, so you do not have to report this training to the division. However, if these courses have been approved continuing education, the hours may be included in the total number of hours necessary to renew your license.
