Arkansas Continuing Education Requirements

Our provider number for the State of Arkansas is 11768.

The Basics

Arkansas agents are required to complete 24 hours of continuing education every 2 year license term to maintain their license, which must include 3 hours of ethics.  When your continuing education requirement must be met depends on when you were licensed, and there are additional requirements that must be met to sell long-term care, annuity or flood policies.

Licensees must take courses in license type held. If multi-licensed, any course is allowed.

Life and Health Producers

Compliance Periods

The last day of the licensee’s birth month, biennially, based on odd/even birth year.

Long-Term Care

We have all the LTC training you need to stay compliant.

Initial 8-hour training requirement

Before selling LTC policies in Arkansas, producers must complete an 8-hour state approved Long-Term Care Partnership training.  This requirement is included in the 24 total hours of continuing education.

Ongoing 4-hour training requirement

After completing the initial 8-hour training, producers continuing to sell LTC must complete a 4-hour ongoing training every two calendar years.  This is also included in the 24-hour requirement.

Property and Casualty Producers


Resident licensed property and casualty producers who sell federal flood insurance policies are required to complete a one-time, 3-hour flood insurance course.  This is included in the 24-hour continuing education requirement and must be completed before selling federal flood insurance policies.

Nonresident CE Requirements

Nonresident agents who are in good standing in their home state are not required to complete Arkansas-approved continuing education courses to be eligible to renew the Arkansas insurance license.

Non-resident producers planning to sell Long-Term Care (LTC) in Arkansas must take an 8-hour NAIC course prior to selling LTC in Arkansas.

CE Completion Reporting

Agents must have their CE credit hours posted prior to their expiration date and prior to applying to renew their insurance license(s).

Certificate of Completion

American Online Insurance School provides online, printable certificates in Arkansas. Certificates of completion are available to print online immediately after the final exam is passed. Because American Online Insurance School reports CE credits everyday, producers are only required to maintain the original certificate of completion in his or her files.

License Renewal Process

Resident and nonresident licensees can renew their licenses online here.

Producers are required to remit a CE filing fee, simultaneously with the other fees required to renew or continue licensure.

Make sure you complete your continuing education early. Agents must have their CE credit hours posted prior to their expiration date and prior to applying to renew their insurance license(s). Providers have 10 days to report your CE completions, so please plan accordingly to avoid a lapse in licensure.
