Wyoming Insurance Continuing Education State Requirements
On this page, you will find all of the state-specific information for Insurance CE in the state of Wyoming.
Wyoming Insurance Department
Effective 3/23/2020: The Commissioner will consider waiving license late/reinstatement fees for licensees who are directly affected by COVID-19 (those who test positive or are a primary caregiver of someone who tests positive) and are unable to renew their insurance license in a timely manner. These requests for exception must be emailed to the Licensing Section (email@example.com) and should include the licensee's name, Wyoming license number, expiration date, and a brief summary of how their situation warrants an exception. The Commissioner will not waive initial license or renewal fees, only late fees. Requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for the remainder of 2020.
Wyoming licensed producers who hold a life insurance license and sell annuities must complete a one-time, four-hour CE credit training course approved by the department of insurance and provided by a department-approved education provider. Producers who hold a life insurance license on September 26, 2014, and who desire to sell annuities must complete the course no later than March 26, 2015. Individuals who obtain a life insurance license on or after September 26, 2014, may not engage in the sale of annuities until the annuity training course has been completed.
Producers who sell annuities in Wyoming may satisfy the requirement if they have completed a course in another state that has adopted substantially similar annuity training requirements. Insurers must verify that their producers have completed the annuity training course required under this rule before allowing producers to sell an annuity product for them in Wyoming.
Long-Term Care Training
Producers wishing to engage in the sales of long-term care insurance must complete a onetime training course of 8 hours and ongoing training of 4 hours every 24 months.
This state has issued a notice reminding licensees who sell flood insurance of their requirement to comply with the minimum 3 hours of training requirements established by FEMA and the National Flood Insurance Program.
All Other State Requirements
Licensees are required to complete 24 continuing education credit hours during a two-year licensing period. Three of the 24 hours must be approved as ethics hours.
Non-resident producers are exempt from Wyoming CE.
Non-resident adjusters must meet their home state requirement. If there is no home state requirement, adjusters must complete 24 hours biennially including 3 hours of ethics.
Course repetition is not permitted within the compliance/renewal period.
Online certification exams are closed book. Course materials are not available while the exam is in progress. The final exam must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to receive CE credit. If the exam is not passed on the first attempt, students have an unlimited number of retakes.
A disinterested third party must monitor (preferred by the Department of Insurance), or a supervisor or training director must monitor the online exam. The monitor is required to complete an online Declaration of Compliance before an individual can access the online exam. The Declaration of Compliance is electronically transmitted to Kaplan upon completion of the exam.
If the licensee launches the exam without a monitor present, he/she will be disqualified from receiving CE credit for the course.
Wyoming resident licensees must complete their CE requirements by the last day of his or her birth month every two years.
Excess credit hours do not carry forward into the next licensing period.
Report within 30 days of completion. Need agent’s license number to report.
State Reporting Fees
The WY Department of Insurance requires a course reporting fee of $1.00 per credit hour (online, self-study and classroom courses). This state reporting fee will be automatically charged to you (on the last credit card used in your account) each time you complete an online, self-study, or classroom course.
Individuals acting as instructors for continuing education courses receive the same amount of CE credit as his or her students receive for taking the class.
