As many of you know by now, Continuing Education is back to the Biennial Compliance period for everyone and your Compliance Deadline is determined by your birth month based on the year you were born in. If you were born in an even year your Compliance Deadline is the last the day of your birth month in the even numbered years. If you were born in an odd year your Compliance Deadline is the last day of your birth month in the odd numbered years. In order to be fully Compliant everyone must complete 24 hours of Continuing Education Credit with 8 hours in your licensed line(s), 3 hours in ethics and the remainder in any category (P&C, LA&H or Ethics), pay your $25.00 Biennial License Renewal Fee to the SC Department of Insurance, and pay your $15.00 CE Recordkeeping fee to Prometric. Please be aware that if you successfully completed an approved CE course, you may not repeat the course (same course number) and receive certification credit within 2 years of its original completion date.
Effective January 1, 2017, South Carolina law requires all resident producers or licensees holding a resident producer's
license to submit fingerprints and background checks upon application for a new license or prior to the renewal of their current license.
Fingerprints will be submitted directly to the Department by the vendor generally within 24 hours after the licensee has been fingerprinted. Failure to comply with the fingerprinting requirement is a violation of the South Carolina insurance laws and could result in the denial of licensure. Additionally, violations of the South Carolina insurance law are subject to the penalties set forth in Code sections 38-43-100 and 38-2-10 of the South Carolina Code of Laws. Visit identogo.com to schedule an appointment for fingerprinting.
Fingerprinting does not have to be done every two years, it is a one-time requirement at this time AND everyone has to be fingerprinted again even if they have already been fingerprinted for CWP or any other reason.
