What happens if a producer with reduced Continuing Education compliance adds a new line of authority?
Effective January 1, 2010, South Carolina law allowing a reduction in continuing education hours has been repealed. Consequently, producers who have reduced continuing education hours who add a new line of authority to their producer license will lose their continuing education reduction hours status and will have to complete the required 24 hours of continuing education by the end of their compliance period.


For example: A producer with reduced continuing education compliance who holds life and health with a December birth month of an even year and adds property and casualty to their existing license, that producer will lose their reduced continuing education hours compliance. The producer will have to complete 24 hours of continuing education in life and health line of authority and pay the record keeping fee to the Continuing Education Administrator, Prometric, regardless of when the new lines are added.


If the producer adds property and casualty, October 3, 2014 prior to their compliance period ending December 31 of the same even year, that producer will not be required to complete continuing education in the new line of authority (property and casualty) during their compliance period.


If the producer adds property and casualty on or before October 2, 2014 prior to their compliance period ending December 31 of the same even year, that producer will be required to complete continuing education in the new line of authority (property and casualty) for their compliance period.
