Business Rules (Individual)

The NIPR does not maintain or process course completion data.  Access to the renewal application is granted once the state electronically notifies the NIPR that you are CE compliant.  We are unable to override the status.  You may select your resident state name from the map on the following link: /map_continuing_education_requirements.htm  to view your CE transcript and determine whether the state has updated your status to compliant in their system and on what date.  It generally takes up to 72 hours from the compliance date for the status to be updated in our system.

Resident licensees required to fulfill continuing education requirements shall complete twenty-four (24) credit hours of Department approved education subjects, three (3) of which shall be in ethics subjects during each biennium reporting period. If the Resident Producer holds a Health license and solicits long term care policies, as part of his/her biennial requirement, the insurance producer must complete at least three (3) hours of training in Delaware long term care insurance that consists of product knowledge, laws, rules and regulations. Any resident licensee who is authorized to write homeowners or personal lines coverage shall be required to complete a two (2) hour continuing education course related to flood insurance and the National Flood Insurance Program as part of the twenty-one (21) general credit hours necessary to maintain a Delaware resident license.

Resident adjusters, public adjusters and Fraternal Producers shall be required to fulfill twelve (12) credit hours of Department approved education subjects, three (3) of which shall be in ethics subjects during each biennium reporting period.

Resident licensees will receive a continuing education transcript at least ninety (90) days prior to the end of a license biennium by mail or by electronic access as the Department deems appropriate. The licensee is responsible for reviewing the transcript for accuracy. To dispute the Department's accounting, the licensee must submit a written exception thereto prior to the biennium deadline and include a copy of the provider’s course completion certificate. This information must be faxed to the state.

The maximum number of carryover credits shall not exceed five (5) credits in a biennium reporting period. Carryover shall not apply to ethics credit requirements. Credits in excess of the mandatory requirements set forth in section 8.2.1 may be applied to the licensee's general course requirements.

No continuing education requirement shall apply to newly licensed individuals during the biennium in which such individuals are licensed.

Automatic credit: An individual continuously licensed for twenty-five (25) years or longer prior to the start of a biennium reporting period or who holds a professional designation shall receive an automatic credit of twelve (12) credits in each biennium. The Department shall maintain a list of approved professional designations. Automatic credits may not be applied to satisfy the mandatory continuing education courses set forth in section 8.2.1.

License reinstatement after suspension, revocation or cancellation. All resident licensees whose licenses were canceled, suspended or revoked for a period of twelve (12) months or more shall first complete all licensing requirements under 18 Del. C. 1706 including the retaking of exams for all lines of authority under which the individual proposes to transact insurance. Any licensee who is reinstated under the provisions of this subsection shall not be entitled to the waiver provided for in section 8.2.5.

Extension of time: For good cause shown, the Department may grant an extension of time during which the requirements imposed by this regulation may be completed. The extension shall not exceed twelve (12) months. The extension will not alter the requirements or due date of the succeeding biennium period. "Good cause" includes disability, natural disaster, or other extenuating circumstances. Each request for extension of time shall be in writing from the licensee and shall include details and any documentation to support the request. Each request must be received by the Department no less than thirty (30) days before the expiration of the biennium period.

Waiver of Continuing Education Requirements: The requirements of this regulation may be waived in writing by the Department for good cause shown. "Good cause" includes long-term illness or incapacity and any other emergency situations deemed appropriate by the Department. Request for waivers of continuing education requirements shall be made in writing and shall be faxed to (302) 736-7906 to the Department no later than thirty (30) days prior to the end of the biennium for which such waiver is requested. Those individuals serving full time in the armed forces of the United States of America on active duty outside of the State of Delaware shall notify the Department upon their return by faxing a copy of their activation orders, to (302) 736-7906, as part of their application for a waiver. Any waiver granted pursuant to this regulation shall be valid only for the biennium for which waiver application was made.

Resident adjusters licensed for the lines of fidelity and surety and/or marine and transportation are exempt from the provisions of section 8.2.2 of this regulation.

Applicants must supply a Delaware resident or business address (one (1) of the two (2) is required).
