You are subject to continuing education requirements of your resident state, sometimes referred to as your home state. These continuing education hours do not need to be reported to Texas. The only time a non-resident is required to report continuing education to Texas is if he or she holds a Texas Designated Home State (DHS) adjuster license.
Texas Continuing Education Course Overview
We've designed our courses to be online and are broken into small "units" to make studying easier and stress-free. There is no need for you to download courses and take a final exam!
There is a quiz at the end of each unit. To progress from one unit to the next, you must pass the quiz by obtaining a score 70% or better. If you fail the quiz, don't worry as the course takes you back to the unit for review and to retake the unit quiz. This process is repeated until you pass the unit quiz.
During the quiz, you cannot back up to find the answer in the study materials. However, you can use your own personal notes but you may not use any other person's notes or help during a quiz.
When you complete the quiz, the course shows you your answer, the correct answer and an explanation of the correct answer. The unit quiz is a monitoring tool used to track your time studying the unit and responses to the questions.
Upon successful completion of the course, we will email you a certificate of completion and report the hours to the Texas Department of Insurance the next business day.
