Texas Insurance Continuing Education Exemptions

Individuals who hold a continual license for at least 20 years from the Texas Department of Insurance are exempted from the insurance CE requirement.

Additionally, under limited circumstances it may be possible for an extention or exemption to be granted if the Texas DOI is provided with proper documentation of a circumstance described in the CE rule that is beyond the licensee's control. Examples of this could be a long term illness, or being stationed abroad during military service.

Under federal law, even exempt individuals must take the required LTC course before they can begin selling long term care policies.
