*Agents must have their CE credit hours posted prior to their expiration date and prior to applying to renew their insurance license(s). Providers have 15 days to report your CE completions, so please plan accordingly to avoid a lapse in licensure.
Insurance CE Course Requirements
Producers may complete the Oregon CE requirements through self-study. The self-study course and exam can be either paper or online.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Oregon Insurance Department requires that a student may not complete more than 8 hours of continuing education credit in one day. This means two things:
- A course approved for greater than 8 hours will be considered to take 2 or more days of study to complete the exam. Multiple smaller courses can be completed within 1 day of study as long as they are combined 8 hours credit or less.
- The total hours that may be completed is equal to the number of days x 8 hours.
For example: Any course that is worth 9-16 hours will take a minimum of 2 days to complete. Any course that is worth 17-24 hours will take a minimum of 3 days to complete.
Paper Study Requirements: Students should read the course material prior to taking the proctored final exam.
Online Study Requirements: Students must read the course material and answer each set of end-of-chapter quizzes with a score of at least 70 percent prior to taking a closed book non-proctored final exam.
Producers may complete their 24-hour CE requirement by taking courses approved only for the line of authority licensed for. A minimum of 3 hours must be in a course approved for ethics, and a minimum of 3 hours must be in a course approved for Oregon Insurance Law.
