State Specific Insurance Continuing Education Courses

The LTC requirement is enforced by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation, and the regulation of the requirement is passed down to insurer and carrier. The Long-Term Care requirement and your CE requirement are independent of one another; you do not have to complete a long-term care course to fulfill your CE requirement.

·       General Lines and Customer Representative Licensees – Must complete one hour of premium discounts CE each renewal cycle. The premium discounts are based on various Hurricane Mitigation Options. Please see the Property & Casualty (General Lines) Category and select one of our two available courses to meet this requirement: Florida Hurricane Loss Mitigation (73683) OR Florida Premium Discount for Hurricane Loss Mitigation (67556).
