Topic-Specific CE Requirements

There are various topic-specific CE requirements you must complete within your renewal cycle if you sell annuities, flood insurance or long-term care insurance.

Since it can be hard to keep them all straight, we've listed these topic-specific CE requirements in the chart below. You'll also find information on the ethics training requirement, which applies to all agents.
