Are you an approved provider of CE in Tennessee?

Yes. Our Tennessee state approval number is: 1000.

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 Tennessee?

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.

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 2 calendar years from the previous completion date.

Note: Producers in your first CE Compliance Period: Please check your SBS transcript before ordering. If your first CE Compliance Period is for longer than 2 calendar years (For example: 3/30/2011-1/31/2014), you will not receive credit for a course repeated within this Compliance Period, even though the course may have been completed more than 2 calendar years from the previous completion date. 

Is there a CE carryover allowance in Tennessee?

Producers may carry over a maximum of 12 excess credit hours to the next license term. However, this carryover allowance does not apply to ethics CE credit requirements. Excess ethics hours will be counted as general credit.  Any course hours carried over to the next renewal will be counted as duplicate if the same course is taken again.
