CE Providers: Updated Course Outline for Senior Suitability Courses

All continuing education providers offering the Senior Suitability (CE9911) course should review the 2012 updated outline effective January 18, 2012. We issued a memorandum regarding this on the same date, which provides more information and links to the related documents. Additionally, the new outline may be found on our website in the Education Central section. New course submissions must contain an outline that includes the minimum course requirements, and all supplemental forms and attachments to be considered for approval under the CE9911 course authority.

Pre-licensing Education Providers and Instructors: Criminal History of Applicants

Pre-licensing education providers and instructors should be aware that legislation passed last year carries significant impact on the eligibility of applicants for licensure who have prior criminal history. For complete information please visit this link: http://www.MyFloridaCFO.com/Agents/Licensure/General/PriorCrimHist.htm.

The Department asks that pre-licensing providers and instructors refer applicants to the Department's webpage or helpline if they have any questions. Please do not attempt to advise any applicant as to what decision the Department would render on his/her application. All applicants should be advised to consider their history and consult with the Department for guidance before enrolling in a pre-licensing course.

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.

  1. Go to our website at www.MyFloridaCFO.com/Agents
  2. Click on Education Central on the left.
  3. Click on Find a CE Course in the left column. This will open the CE Course Search.
  4. Select the Course Authority for the type of license held or course you need to take.
  5. You can also make other choices, like Study Method and Location, to narrow your search results.
  6. 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.

We wish you well as you continue to complete your hours to keep your knowledge current in an ever changing insurance market. And remember, your CE compliance date is your DUE date, not your DO date.
