Are you an approved provider of CE in Arizona?

Yes. Our Arizona state approval number is: 13051.

How long will it take to have my credits processed?

Most students will have their credits processed the same day on which they complete their final exam. If a course is completed outside of our normal business hours, these credits will be processed on the morning of the next business day. Once your credits have been successfully filed, you will receive a notification email that also contains your Certificate of Completion.

Do I need a proctor during my exam?

No. Self-study final exams do not require a monitor.

What are the requirements for my course's final exam?

Self-study final exams are open book. Producers may refer to the course material as often as needed. Most of our courses allow you to download the class materials as a PDF. Please check the details page of your desired course to see if such material is available.

The final exam must be passed with a score of 70 percent or higher to receive credit. Students have unlimited attempts to pass the exam.

Are there filing fees in Arizona?

A roster fee of $1.00 per credit is required to process course credits in this state. This fee will be added to your order total during checkout and is then sent by us to the state upon completion.

Are there time limits on my course or exam?

No. You may spend as much time with the course material as you feel necessary, and you may come and go from that material as often as you like. There is no time limit on our exams, however all exams must be completed within one sitting. Once started, if an exam is abandoned for any reason you will need to begin that exam from the beginning when you next return.

Do take special note that every course has an expiration date, which is based on both the state approval and your website purchase date. In order to receive credit you must complete the course before that expiration date.

What are the resident CE requirements in Arizona?

Producers: 48 credit hours (of which 6 should be ethics) required every license term.

Adjusters: Resident and non-resident adjusters are exempt from CE requirements.


Special Training Education Requirements
Annuity Best Interest
Updated Training Requirement!

All producers who hold a life insurance producer license must complete a one time four-hour annuity training course that includes the topic of "best interest" prior to selling, soliciting or negotiating an annuity on the insurer’s behalf.

A producer who completed the original annuity training course requirements prior to 12/31/2020 had a grace period until 6/30/2021 to complete either the new 1 or 4 hour training course. They could sell, solicit and negotiate annuities during that time period.

A producer who has NOT completed the original annuity training course requirements prior to 12/31/2020 or a producer who did not complete the updated training prior to 06/30/2021 is unable to sell, solicit or negotiate annuities until the 4 hour annuity-best interest course has been completed.

Flood All Arizona-licensed resident insurance producers who sell federal flood insurance policies are required to complete a one-time 3-hour requirement on flood insurance.
Long Term Care

Initial training requirement: An individual licensee cannot sell, solicit or negotiate long-term care insurance unless the individual is licensed as an accident and health or sickness insurance producer and the individual completes eight hours of Arizona-approved long-term care training. ARS § 20-1691.12(A)(2) A nonresident must either complete an Arizona-approved long-term care training course or satisfy a substantially similar requirement in the licensee's home state. ARS § 20-1691.12(F)

On-going training requirement: An individual licensee must complete four hours of Arizona-approved long-term care training after the two-year period within which the individual completed the initial long-term care training. ARS § 20-1691.12(A)(3) A nonresident must either complete Arizona-approved long-term care training or satisfy a substantially similar requirement in the licensee's home state. ARS § 20-1691.12(F)

Arizona-approved long-term care training means an Arizona-approved insurance continuing education course containing long-term care content as determined by the continuing education administrator. By completing long-term care training, you also earn credit that you can apply toward satisfying Arizona's insurance continuing education requirement.

What are the non-resident CE requirements in Arizona?

A non-resident licenseholder is not required to complete Arizona insurance continuing education.

Arizona law provides that a non-resident licensed in good standing in the home state is not required to complete Arizona-approved continuing education courses to be eligible to renew the Arizona insurance license if the home state has a continuing education requirement for its resident insurance producers (and all states do), and if the home state recognizes insurance continuing education credits earned in Arizona by Arizona residents (and all states do). ARS § 20–2902(H) through (I). SEE ALSO LONG-TERM CARE TRAINING AND FLOOD INSURANCE TRAINING. Notwithstanding the absence of an insurance continuing education requirement, you are responsible for remaining abreast of, and complying with, applicable U.S. and Arizona laws, rules and regulations.

When do I need to have my CE completed?

The renewal term is the last day of the licensee's birth month, every 4 years.

May I re-take a course for credit that I have already completed successfully?

No. You may not repeat a course for credit during the same license period.

Is there a CE carryover allowance in Arizona?

No. Excess credit hours do not carry over from one license period to the next.

Are there any CE exemptions in Arizona?

You are exempt from the insurance continuing education requirement if ALL THE FOLLOWING APPLY and continue to apply:

  • You have been "continuously licensed" in Arizona as an insurance agent, broker or producer since January 1, 1995; and,
  • You have not held a nonresident insurance producer license in another state at any time since January 1, 1995; and,
  • You have never been the subject of an order of the director of insurance for a violation of Arizona insurance laws (ARS Title 20) that resulted in your license being suspended, revoked, denied or not renewed; or, that required you to cease and desist from unlawful activity; or, that required you to pay restitution or a civil penalty.
