All resident agent producers, Title producers, CSRs and adjusters are required to complete continuing education biennially prior to license renewal.

Renewal Guidelines

– CE providers are required to report course completions (electronically) within 10 business days of course completion. The transcript must show CE COMPLIANT, at least 3 business days before the licensee will be allowed to process their renewal application online. Best Practice: CE should be completed at least 30 days prior to the license expiration date to allow ample time for the CE provider to report the credit. This will also allow time for the licensee to process their renewal prior to expiration.

Repeat Courses

– Licensees cannot repeat a course within a 24 month period. A Licensee will need to review their CE Transcript online to ensure that a course is not repeated (refer to the course number for verification.)

Approved Courses

– Only Oklahoma approved CE courses will count toward your CE requirements. A list of approved courses may be found under Course Lookup.

Credits Carried Over

– Six (6) credit hours in excess of the minimum twenty-four month period requirement shall carry forward to the next twenty-four month period as general hours.
