The Texas Department of Insurance dictates that all adjusters renew their license every two years. With various options available for meeting the State of Texas Continuing Education requirements for license renewal, confusion can result. Let\’s clarify those options so you can make a wise choice as you prepare for your license renewal. Online classes continue to be the easiest way to get your Texas CE Requirements.
Texas Insurance Continuing Education Credits
To renew your license you have to meet the following requirements:
- 30 hours of CE classes which must include
- 2 hours of “Ethics” plus
- 15 hours of Classroom or “Classroom Equivalent” hours
Although many people wait until the last minute to get their CE credits, you can save time and stress by scheduling your courses throughout the two years.
Classroom, Classroom Equivalent, and Self Study Options
Classroom is pretty self explanatory. This is you sitting in a room in front of a live instructor.
Classroom Equivalent: the course has been submitted to Texas Department of Insurance for approval. TDI has specific rules that dictate if a course can be classroom equivalent or not. Classroom Equivalent courses quiz you every 15 minutes over the content just taught, and there is no final exam. This applies only to online and self study CE credits.
Self study is the third type of CE classes offered. The self study courses don\’t have quizzes, but you must pass a final exam at the end of the course. This applies to online and self study CE credits.
For the student, the Classroom Equivalent is easier, but for the provider, the self study is easier to create. Therefore, many providers choose to classify their CE classes as Self Study. 2021Training has chosen to create and submit their courses for approval as Classroom Equivalent.
Adusters and Agents can take the 2021Training approved CE Credit courses.
