Continuing Education Requirements

Continuing education is only required for resident insurance producers and adjusters. This includes insurance adjusters that have designated Louisiana as their “home state” for the purpose of licensing.  The requirements are as follows:

1. Producers licensed for one or more lines of life, health and accident,  property, casualty or personal lines       24 hours
2. Producers licensed for line of bail bonds                    12 hours
3. Producers licensed for line of title      12 hours
4. Adjuster license 24 hours

Producers licensed for one or more lines of life, health and accident, property, casualty or personal lines and all adjusters must include three (3) hours of education in ethics as part of the twenty-four (24) hour requirement.  Insurance producers with the lines of property, casualty or personal lines must include three (3) hours of education in flood as part of the twenty-four (24) hour requirement.

Effective with renewals of 2015, producers licensed for title must include two (2) hours on the topic of consumer financial protection as part of the twelve (12) hour requirement.

Under Louisiana law (La. R.S. 22:1575) an individual producer may not sell, solicit or negotiate long-term care insurance unless the individual has complied with the long-term care training requirements. This requirement is separate and distinct from the continuing education requirement listed above. The training courses may be submitted to the Louisiana Department of Insurance by the provider to receive continuing education credits. If the courses are approved for continuing education credit, they may be applied to the minimum requirements listed above.

La R.S. 22:1576 requires individual producers engaged in the sale of annuity products to complete a one-time four (4) hour training course. This requirement is separate and distinct from the continuing education requirements for a licensee and applies to both resident and nonresident producers. The requirement applies to all types of annuity products.
