Oklahoma renewal guidelines state that the agent's CE transcript must show CE Compliant, at least 3 business days before the licensee will be allowed to process their renewal application online. They suggest the best practice is for CE to be completed at least 30 days prior to the license expiration date to allow ample time for credits to be reported and allow for the licensee to process their renewal prior to expiration.
Approved Course Delivery Methods
• Written and Online self-study courses (passing grade of 70% required on final exam)

Course Subject Requirements
• Resident Producers and Title Producers credits other than Ethics or Legislative Updates are Producer General Credits and do not need to be license specific.
- Resident Adjuster credits other than Ethics or Legislative Updates are required to be Adjuster General Credit.
- A Non-Resident Producers basic CE is considered to be reciprocal with the producer's resident state. The producer must maintain an active license in their resident state to be eligible for a non-resident license in Oklahoma.
- Non-Resident Adjusters are required to complete CE in at least (1) state where they have an active adjuster license. CE Requirements should be completed in their resident state as long as that state requires CE. Otherwise, the adjuster may designate a non-resident state where they hold an active license and meet that state's CE requirement. If Oklahoma is their designated home state, then the adjuster is required to complete 24 hours of continuing education. The 24 hours should consist of 3 hours of ethics, 2 hours of legislative update and 19 hours of Adjuster General credits.
• Licensees must complete 3 hours in ethics. (Except for Title Agents who only need 2 hours of ethics).
• Licensees must complete 2 hours in legislative updates.
• Producers who sell, solicit or negotiate Long Term Care insurance must complete a one-time 8-hour training course. In addition to the one-time training course, producers who sell LTC insurance must complete no less than 4 hours of ongoing LTC training every 24 months. These credits count towards 19 hours of producer general credit.
• Producers that sell, solicit, or negotiate Annuity products are required to take a one-time 4 hour course on Annuity products. These credits count towards 19 hours of producer general credit.
NOTE: As of September 15, 2019, the 1 hour continuing education flood requirement will no longer be effective.

License renewals processed after September 15, 2019 will not be required to obtain continuing education on flood coverage.
Six credit hours in excess of the minimum 24 month period requirement shall carry forward to the next 24 month period. Excess hours may be applied to bring a lapsed license into compliance. Carryover CE hours will be considered as general hours.
