Exemptions to Illinois Insurance CE Requirements
In Illinois, there is no exemption for those who have held a continuous insurance license for two decades or more. However, most nonresident agents, as well as those with a temporary license, are exempt. Those who hold limited licenses in areas including limited travel health, baggage, trip cancellation, industrial life and health are also exempt, as are those selling insurance issued by a local county, township, or mutual district insurance provide.
Extra Requirements and Special Considerations
If you are a resident producer selling flood insurance, you must complete three hours of NFIP flood training. If you sell, advertise, or solicit Long-Term Care insurance policies, you must undergo a one-time eight-hour training and certification course—and four hours of ongoing LTC insurance training every two years thereafter. This training may be included in, not in addition to, the 24 hours of continuing education required to maintain your existing insurance license.
The state of Illinois recommends that insurance adjusters and producers complete all continuing education requirements within thirty days of the deadline to allow time for processing. If you don’t, your license renewal could be delayed while your paperwork is processed.
