Current Items of Interest
Non-compliance with CE Information (Resident)
Licensees who fail to meet the minimum continuing education (CE) hours or fail to take the mandatory ethics and flood hours by their CE compliance date will have their license(s) expire.
Licensees have 4 months from the CE compliance date to meet the required hours. A $75.00 reinstatement must be submitted to Prometric to have the license reinstated.
If the required CE hours are not met by the end of the 4-month period, the license will become inactive. Licensees must complete pre-licensing and pass the state exam for each line of authority to be issued a new license.
Continuing Education Requirements for Nonresident Agents
Nonresident agents do not have continuing education requirements for North Carolina. The Department will confirm the active license status in the resident state through the national Producer Database (PDB) which is updated on a timely basis by participating state insurance departments. If the agent license is not in good standing in the resident state, the nonresident agent license will be cancelled in North Carolina.
Continuing Education Requirements for Nonresident Adjusters
Nonresident adjusters who qualified for licensure in their residence state or by passing an adjuster examination in a state other than North Carolina shall be considered to have met the same continuing education requirements as resident adjusters by keeping their adjuster license in good standing in that qualifying state. The Department will confirm the active license status in the appropriate state through the national Producer Database (PDB), which is updated on a timely basis by participating state insurance departments. If the adjuster license is not in good standing in the appropriate state, the nonresident adjuster license will be cancelled in North Carolina.
Nonresident adjusters who qualified for licensure by passing the North Carolina adjuster examination shall meet the same continuing education requirements as North Carolina resident adjusters – 24 hours of continuing education on a biennial basis, including the mandatory ethics and flood hours.
