For all compliance periods ending October 31, 2014 and thereafter, the State of Florida requires, of all adjusters, 24 hours of CE in a two-year period referred to as a “compliance period”. The 24 hours are broken into specific categories as follows:
- One properly certified "5-Hour Law and Ethics Update"
- 19 "Elective" hours which may consist of any CE courses approved by the department (this includes CE categories formerly certified as "Law", "Ethics" or "Optional" prior to the 10/31/14 rule change)
Adjusters who have been licensed for more than 6 years are eligible for a CE reduction.
Pursuant to F.S. 626.2815:
(b) A licensee who has been licensed for 6 or more years must also complete a minimum of 15 hours of elective continuing education every 2 years.
(c) A licensee who has been licensed for 25 years or more and is a CLU or a CPCU or has a Bachelor of Science degree in risk management or insurance with evidence of 18 or more semester hours in insurance-related courses must also complete a minimum of 5 hours of elective continuing education courses every 2 years.
