How to Renew Your Rhode Island Insurance License
24 hours biennially
Compliance Renewal Date
Renewal date is the last day of the licensee’s birth month, biennially.
You may also need to take specific courses or earn specific credit types to renew your license. These course completions will count toward the total hour requirement.
For All Licenses:
3 hrs – Producers must complete 3 hrs of Ethics as part of the total requirement.
An insurance producer who engages in the sale of annuity products shall complete a one-time four (4) credit training course approved by the department of insurance and provided by the department of insurance approved education provider. Individuals who obtain a life insurance line of authority may not engage in the sale of annuities until the required annuity training course has been completed.
Long-Term Care Training
Producers must complete an initial training course prior to selling long-term care products and ongoing training every 24 months thereafter. The initial training must consist of 8 hours; ongoing training must be at least 4 hours. The training requirement applies to both residents and nonresidents, although nonresidents meeting the same requirement for another state will satisfy this state’s requirement. Residents may earn CE credit if the training was approved for CE.

Non Resident Requirements

Producers may not take the same course more than once in a compliance 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.
Rhode Island licensees expire on the last day of the licensee’s birth month biennially.
Up to 12 excess CE credits accumulated during a biennial license cycle may be carried forward through the end of the next renewal period. Excess ethics credits will be carried over as general credits during the biennial license cycle.
Reported within 10 days of completion. Need agent’s state license number or NPN to report.
State Reporting Fees
The RI Department of Insurance will require 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.
Rhode Island residents, who are at least 60 years old and have held license for 20 consecutive years, are exempt from CE requirements.
