Changes to CE Requirements for Licensed Producers, Adjusters, & Consultants

Senate Bill 127 of the 2009 Legislature included the revised insurance continuing education requirement that includes 3 credit hour of ethics for all licensees as part of the existing 24 credit hour insurance continuing education compliance. One may read the bill language at: http://data.opi.mt.gov/bills/2009/billpdf/SB0127.pdf

SB 127, Section 10 states: "Applicability. [Section 8] applies to 24-month periods for obtaining continuing education beginning on or after January 1, 2010." Licensees may take courses to meet this requirement after 1/1/10 and must first report compliance 1/1/12.
