Insurance CE Exam Requirements
- Online: Once the exam is opened for an online course, access to the course material is restricted until the exam has been graded.
- Paper: The final exam for paper-based courses is closed book, and no outside information may be used to complete the exam.
- The final exam must be passed with a grade of 70 percent or higher to receive credit. If the final exam is not passed on the first attempt, students have an unlimited number of retakes.
Exams are required to be monitored by a disinterested third party. A disinterested third party is an individual with no family or financial relationship to the student. Therefore a proctor should not serve for examinations of family members, relatives, or dependents; employers or supervisors; employees or subordinates; partners, joint ventures, or co-owners; or anyone in whom the proctor or instructor has an economic or other interest in assuring the successful outcome of the examination.
State-Specific Proctor Form
Upon successful completion of the final exam, the student is required to return the completed Nebraska Affidavit of Course Completion form to WebCE for each course. For online courses, this form is completed online once the exam has been graded and passed. For paper courses, the student will need to complete the Student Compliance Declaration and the proctor will need to complete the Third-Party Compliance Declaration on the exam answer sheet prior to returning the exam for grading. The completion date for the exam will be based upon the date WebCE receives the completed form.
Self-Study Final Exam: 70%
Repetition and Carryover

A course may not be taken for credit more than once within a 2-year license term.
