PAST COMMUNICATIONS

Updated: March 19, 2020

The Pennsylvania Insurance Department today issued COVID-19 Continuing Education and Licensing Renewal Information. The notice includes:

While the Department strongly encourages licensees to take advantage of online CE courses, we understand that at this time, the circumstances related to COVID-19 may prevent some licensees from being able to complete CE requirements in time for their licensing renewal. Therefore, until further notice, the Commissioner of the Commonwealth, pursuant to 40 P.S. 310.8(e), will temporarily waive CE requirements for licensees who cannot meet requirements due to extenuating circumstances related to COVID-19.  

If you are unable to take online courses to fulfill your requirement by the deadline, we encourage you to document the reasoning. 


Updated: March 17, 2020

Important Information

Please read this update. We are experiencing heavy call volume and ask for your patience in making any registration changes until we have alternate education options finalized.  

IF YOU ARE REGISTERED FOR A COURSE BETWEEN NOW AND APRIL 12

No classroom courses will be held between March 16 and April 12. All scheduled live CE webinars will be held without interruption. Our on-demand training programs remain available as well. 

We are finalizing details for alternate programming, including CISR webinars, online discussion groups for licensing courses, and a new on-demand program. Please wait to make changes to your registrations until we have outlined all the options for you. We are waiting on word from the insurance departments for approvals on our new program formats.

Individuals registered for classroom courses during this timeframe will receive direct email communication from IA&B’s Education Team. 

If you are a CIC and/or a CISR designee holder, we will assist you with extensions for your annual update requirement if needed. Watch for more information on this process.

IF YOU ARE REGISTERED FOR A COURSE AFTER APRIL 12

Courses April 12 and later will be addressed in the coming weeks. We are working on alternative options for our courses, including live CISR webinars, online discussion groups for licensing courses, and the launch of a new on-demand program. Although we are getting all the pieces in place to go live with all these options, we must wait for the green light from the insurance departments regarding CE approvals. Please delay making changes to your registration until we have shared additional information.  

ADDITIONAL NOTES

IA&B’s Advocacy Team is talking with our state insurance departments related to license renewals and CE deadlines and whether there is potential for a leniency/grace period under the circumstances. As we know more, we will share updates.

We will keep this page updated with additional information and decisions as they are made. We appreciate your patience as we finalize alternate solutions.  

The next update for this page is scheduled for no later than Friday, March 20.
