Duplicate Education Courses
Have you taken the same course twice in a three-year period and not received credit?
This is because the same course cannot be taken with the same provider within a three-year period.  Section 69B-228.100(6), F.A.C., requires that three years must pass before credit can be given in this scenario. The Department encourages licensees to check their transcript prior to registering for continuing education courses to avoid the expense of duplicating coursework. This can be accomplished by logging in to MyProfile and viewing your education transcript.

Finding a Pre-Licensing or Continuing Education (CE) Course
Do you need to locate a pre-licensing or continuing education course?
The Department’s search engine for courses is a helpful tool in locating courses. The search engine is located at http://www.MyFloridaCFO.com/Agents. Click on the "Education Central" icon at the bottom of the page then click on the "Find a C.E. Course" link. From there, you will be able to enter criteria to find a course that suits your needs.
