California Insurance CE Requirements

California requires most insurance license holders to renew their license every two years. CPMI’s Continuing Education (CE) courses can help you meet the California Department of Insurance license renewal requirements. Take advantage of our:

Ensure your license is renewed today.

California insurance continuing education is for producers, adjusters, and agents licensed to sell various insurance related products in the state of California. California’s requirements differ depending on the line of authority.

    >
  • Life, Personal Lines, Property, Casualty, and Accident/Health Agents are required to take 24 hours of CE every two years, including 3 hours of ethics.
  • Limited Lines Auto producers are only required to complete 20 hours every two years, but must still complete 3 hours of ethics.

Please note that only courses pertaining to the lines of insurance in which you are licensed count towards California’s credit hours.

All insurance CE must be completed before your insurance license renewal date in order to avoid late fees and complications with the license renewal process. The California Department of Insurance recommends that candidates complete their CA insurance continuing education at least 60 days before credits are due.

There are some exceptions to California’s license renewal requirements. You are exempt if you are:

  • A nonresident licensee who does not sell annuities, LTC, or flood products.
  • At least 70 years old and have held a continual license from the state of California for 30+ years.
  • Licensed in cargo shipping insurance.
  • A life-only agent who can claim a funeral exemption.

According to federal law, even exempt individuals must take an LTC course before they can sell long term care policies.

All insurance providers in California are required to:

  • Take 24 hours of CE are every 2 years.
  • 3 hours ethics, 21 hours approved for lines in which a license is held.
  • Pass your open book course completion examination with a 70% or better.

California allows you to carry over excess credits to the next renewal period, but courses cannot be repeated for credit in the same renewal period. After you pass our course, CPMI will send your completion information on to the California Insurance Department.

For information on state-specific license renewal requirements outside of California, please visit the National Insurance Producer Registry.
