Training for Insurance Professionals

Continuing Insurance Training and Education

Once you’ve passed a licensing exam of any kind, there will be requirements in order to maintain that license. For compliance purposes, you will be required to complete training and take part in continuing education so that your licensing can renew and stay current throughout the years while you are registered. If for some reason you fail to complete required continuing education and training, your license could lapse. In some cases (differs by state), you may have to take the exam again in order to re-establish your licensing.

The Importance of Continuing Education

So why is continuing education so important? With insurance and securities licensing, the thought is that regulations are always changing and you are working with people’s money. They’ve entrusted you with their finances so you are held accountable for this position. Continuing education is a great way to make sure you are aware of changes in the field while also reminding you of some of the things you may not see in your day-to-day activities. It’s a great reminder for compliance, changes, and important details related to the field. Continuing education keeps you in the know, making sure you are at the forefront of your industry and not falling behind as changes come about in the industry.

Planning for Continuing Education

The requirements for continuing education may vary in different states or it may vary depending on the license which you hold as well. When it comes to continuing insurance training and education, you need to be sure you understand what your requirements will be. It’s pretty common to push CE to the side and then try to do it all at the last minute. Chances are you had big aspirations but just get busy and then need to finish your continuing education quickly. Find a resource that will have quick and easy materials for you to access. Look at all your options, such as webinars, online courses or possibly even in classroom. The important thing is to not let your CE lapse as this will negatively affect your licensing depending on what state you are in.

What to Look For

When you’re considering your continuing education options, there are some things you should look for. You need to be mindful of who you choose for your education and training and be certain that your efforts will qualify for continuing education from them. Here are some things you may want to consider.
● Will the courses be compliant with continuing education requirements?
● Are the courses going to fit within your time frame?
● A variety of training material and options
● Flexibility to access training materials on your terms
● Mobile compatibility (if you need it)
● Review content and exams
