For All Licenses:
3 hrs – Producers & Adjusters must complete 3 hrs of Ethics as part of the total requirement.
Effective 1/1/12, any insurance producer who is authorized to sell life or accident, health, or sickness insurance and who engages in the sale of annuity products must complete a one-time four hour training course on annuity products by January 31, 2012. An insurance producer who obtains a life insurance line of authority after January 31, 2012 may not engage in the sale of annuities until the training course has been completed.

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
Resident producers authorized to sell lines of insurance in only life, accident, and health or only in property and casualty must complete 24 hours of CE during each license renewal period. Three (3) hours of CE must specifically relate to ethics or the Hawaii insurance laws and rules, with the other 21 hours relating to the applicable class/line of insurance.
Resident producers who are authorized to sell lines of insurance in both life, accident, and health and property and casualty must also complete 24 hours of CE during each renewal period. The 24 hours must be completed in the following manner:
- Ten (10) credit hours relating to the life, accident, and health class of insurance

This state has issued a notice reminding licensees who sell flood insurance of their requirement to comply with the minimum training requirements established by FEMA and the National Flood Insurance Program.
Non Resident Requirements
A producer’s satisfaction of the producer’s home state’s continuing education requirements for licensed insurance producers shall constitute satisfaction of Hawaii’s continuing education requirement so long as the non-resident producer’s home state recognizes the satisfaction of its continuing education imposed upon producers from Hawaii on the same basis.
Course repetition is not permitted within two (2) years of the original completion date.
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.
Online exams must be monitored by a disinterested third party. A disinterested third party certifies that the licensee completed the exam without assistance (i.e., closed book, no tiling, layering of screens, etc.) and is someone who has no financial interest in the success or failure of the student’s ability to maintain their license. The monitor must complete the online Declaration of Compliance. If the licensee launches the exam without a monitor present, he/she will be disqualified from receiving CE credit for the course. Completion of the Declaration of Compliance acknowledges understanding and adherence to the specific requirements outlined by the State Department of Insurance. The Declaration of Compliance is electronically transmitted to Kaplan upon completion of the exam and may be audited for compliance purposes.
Producers renew on the 16th day of their birth month; even months renew in even years, odd months renew in odd years.
Carryover is not permitted.
Report within 15 days of completion. Need Agent’s license number to report.
