Bureau Rule Chapter 542
Number of credit hours required for producers and consultants
The rule requires 24 credit hours every biennium. Of these 24, at least 3 hours must be for an ethics class.
Calculation of biennial due dates
Chapter 542 establishes a biennial
compliance date for each licensee based upon their month and year of
birth. An individual will determine their due date for continuing
education by reference first to their birth month, and then, whether
they were born in an "odd" or "even" year. The due date will then be the
end of the birth month, in an odd or even year.
For example, if a person was born in
March, 1965, their continuing education is going to be due by the last
day of March in every odd year, such as 2009, 2011, etc.
If someone was born in March, 1966, their due date will be the last day of March in 2008, 2010, etc. To view the entire text of Rule 542, please click on the following link:
