Know Your CE Course Authorities
Before taking a continuing education course, make sure it is approved
for the "course authority"
that falls within the scope of your license. For example, if you take a 2-15 Life, Health and Variable Annuity
course, but you only have a 2-14 Life and Variable Annuity license, you
necessarily receive CE credit.
Additionally, if you are an adjuster, but take a 2-20 General Lines course, you will not receive CE
In order to be sure that you receive CE credit, check the CE
requirements for your license type. To do this:

Reducing Your Number of Required CE Hours
Many agents are eligible for a reduction in their continuing education if they have 25 years experience as a licensed agent. This experience can be a combination of years from any state(s).
An agent must submit a completed "Application for CLU/CPCU/College Degree + Experience Status"
along with documentation of the appropriate
designation or college degree to be reviewed. This form can be printed from
our web site at
www.MyFloridaCFO.com/Agents under the "Forms" section. A reduction of hours cannot be approved over the telephone; a written request must be submitted
by the agent. You may also
be eligible to receive a reduction for being licensed in Florida more than 6 years. The 6-year reduction is automatic and does not require
the submission of an application to our office.
