No matter how busy your schedule, keeping up with insurance CE on the Internet is more than a workable proposition. As an industry professional you're still faced with earning the same 12 or 15 hours of credit you need to renew your license every two years. This has never changed, given the industry's goal of maintaining standards of competence and excellence.

Just 10 years ago, your only recourse to academic-style credits was the traditional classroom. You enrolled in an accredited institution, registered for pre-approved courses, made time in your daily or weekly or monthly schedule, and commuted to the school from office or home. Self-study and correspondence courses were an option, in many case, but were certainly not the rule. The burgeoning of the World Wide Web and online learning changed this picture entirely. Insurance CE on the Internet has proven an indispensable boon to busy insurance professionals.

Both federal and state law govern the insurance industry. The federal government dictates the peripherals of the industry. The state government dictates how the business of insurance operates in the state. The particulars vary, therefore, from state to state, but the fundamentals do not for the most part.

Insurance CE on the Internet: a National Snapshot

The biggest change to insurance education after the Internet itself was the reciprocity agreement. Under it, credits earned from continuing education in one participating state could be used toward license renewal requirements in another state. As of mid-2004, 47 states were signed onto this agreement, making insurance CE on the Internet even more convenient.
