There's no denying that insurance CE renewals are sometimes tedious and often time consuming. They're also a necessity, an ongoing reality for professionals in the field. No matter what your line of insurance or your line of work--broker, adjuster, underwriter, assessor, or agent--you need to renew your license every two to four years on average. How long a license to practice insurance is valid depends, of course, on individual state law.

The reason behind insurance CE renewals, of course, is for you to stay fully abreast of developments that affect the field. How can you serve the needs of policy holders effectively if you aren't up-to-date on the industry and practices? The mission of the insurance industry is simple. It is to guard both individuals and businesses against either minor or devastating loss--whether hurricane, theft, earthquake, illness, or accident.

Your raison d'être as an insurance agent is to know what the options are, how to best protect policy holders, and to help them decide on a policy that fits both their budgets and their needs. The surest way for you to achieve this is to follow the news and stay current on priorities in Washington, domestic policy, and the economy--all in a formalized setting.

Earning credits that count toward your license renewal can be done in a traditional classroom, through self-study programs, and with accredited Internet course work. But there are many options. Seminars and conferences, whether sponsored by your company or public, are often applicable to insurance CE renewals. If you teach in the field, conduct training, or publish articles, columns, or books, these also translate into license renewals. It's easier than you think.
