- Things to know about your continuing education
Complete all of your CE requirements in half the time. Contact us to find out how. Sound familiar? We have all seen advertisements like this. Many of you have probably taken courses from CE providers because of these advertisements. Did you know that as a student of a CE course you are also responsible under the continuing education regulations? Below is a list of things that you, as a student, are responsible for when taking CE courses.
A violation of any portion of these regulations may result in a fine, suspension and/or denial of continuing education credit to you, the student. If you accept credit for a CE course that you did not complete or did not complete in its entirety, you could be found in violation. If an instructor does not require that you stay for the entire class and you accept CE credit, you could be found in violation. If you are able to skip directly to the final exam without reviewing any of the study material in an online course and you accept CE credit, you could be found in violation. It is your duty and responsibility as a licensee to maintain your ethical standards and report any education provider that is not adhering to the rules. To report provider activity, send a detailed email to: Education@MyFloridaCFO.com.
To be CE compliant requires more than just taking CE courses. Below are a few suggestions for remaining CE compliant:
We wish you success in completing your hours to remain knowledgeable in an ever-changing insurance market. And remember, your CE compliance date is your DUE date, not your DO date.
Because many factors may affect your continuing education requirement (e.g. licenses held, number of years licensed, etc.), we encourage you to periodically check your MyProfile account to determine your individual continuing education compliance requirements and status. You will also be able to find more approved CE courses after logging in to your MyProfile account versus the public search option, which limits the results to the first 100 course offerings.
