How to Search for Approved CE Courses

Looking for continuing education (CE) courses to be sure you get all your hours completed? Our online course search can easily help you out and lists those courses approved by the Department.

  • Go to our website at www.MyFloridaCFO.com/Agents
  • Click on Education Central on the left.
  • Click on Find a CE Course in the left column. This will open the CE Course Search.
  • Select the Course Authority for the type of license held or course you need to take.
  • You can also make other choices, like Study Method and Location, to narrow your search results.
  • If you click on Perform an Advanced Search, you will have additional options to narrow your search results, such as Course Date and Course Level.

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.

Education Course Providers: The Cover Page That Gets You Covered

Would you like your courses processed faster? Many course submissions are delayed in receiving approval because of missing information and lack of clarity in the outline. We would like to save you time and trouble in drafting an acceptable outline for submitting with a course application.

Here are some quick tips:

  1. Understand that your material has to be relevant to insurance agents or adjusters and qualify as serving the purpose of increasing their professionalism, ethics, or competence; not about salesmanship or selling skills.
  2. It can't be about the book! Courses that are geared to sharing tips on increasing an agent's or adjuster's amount of business are not acceptable material for CE credit. Save yourself the time and money; don't submit this type of material.
  3. Q&A time does not count towards CE hours.
  4. Only a 10 minute break is allowed per hour.
  5. When in doubt, read Rule 69B-228.080, F.A.C.
  6. Include a cover page and a timed outline with as much detail as possible. Click here to see an example
