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 we receive their signed affidavit, issued upon completion of their final exam. If an affidavit is received 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?

Arizona insurance continuing education requires a proctor be present during your final exam. The proctor will need to be an Arizona-licensed insurance producer who is physically present for the entirety of the exam..

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?

No. There are no processing fees in this state.

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 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 license issuance month, every 4 years.

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

A course may not be taken for credit more than once within a 4-year license period.

Is there a CE carryover allowance in Arizona?

Excess hours accumulated during any renewal period may not be carried over to the next reporting period.

Are there any CE exemptions in Arizona?

You are exempt from the insurance continuing education requirement by having 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,
