Effective July 1, 2019, Prometric will no longer be the Continuing Education (CE) administrator for the SC Department of Insurance. Those resident producers with a birth month through June of 2019 will still be required to pay the $15 CE record-keeping fee to Prometric. If you are a resident producer with a birth month of July 2019 and after, you will not be required to pay the $15 CE record-keeping fee. That fee will not be charged under SBS. However, course sponsors will have to pay a small fee under the SBS model so you can likely expect a slight increase in your course fees in exchange for removing the $15 CE record-keeping fee.
All resident producers will still need to meet the 24 hours of CE and renewal application requirements to maintain an active license. The CE requirements can be found on the Department’s website.
Effective July 8, 2019, you will log onto SBS’s website to view your CE transcript and South Carolina license information. As a reminder to resident producers, fingerprinting is not required at every renewal. If a resident producer was fingerprinted at initial licensure or for their last compliance period, fingerprinting is not required a second time as long as the license remains active.South Carolina Regulation 69.50 details the continuing education requirements for individuals qualified or licensed to act as insurance producers in this state.
