Attention All South Carolina Insurance producers:


Important Notice Regarding Prometric Address Change

It has recently been brought to the attention of the South Carolina Department of Insurance that some South Carolina licensed resident insurance producers may be taking continuing education courses from an unapproved sponsor or instructor.  The purpose of this notice is to inform all resident South Carolina insurance producers to first check the approved course list on Prometric's website or contact Prometric at 800-490-6551. Any CE course hours earned from a course taken from an unapproved sponsor or instructor will result in the credit hours being declined.

Please keep a copy of all course completion records in case verification is required at a later date.
 

  1. The new birth month/birth year transition requirements are incorporated in your record.
  2. The CE credits that have been reported for the 2012 biennium period are displayed on your record.
  3. Again, if you have any questions regarding your transcript for the 2012 compliance year, please contact Laurie Sadowski at Prometric at 651-603-3258 for assistance. If you are unable to resolve your differences with Prometric, please contact the South Carolina Department of Insurance’s continuing education area (803-737-6223) for assistance.

  • Pay CE fees*

South Carolina CE Regulation 69-50

South Carolina law allowing exemptions has been repealed effective January 1, 2010. No new exemption requests will be honored. Producers that were granted an exemption prior to January 1, 2010, will remain exempt. However, exempt producers that add a new line of authority or allow their license to become inactive will lose their exemption status and will be required to comply with all CE requirements.
