Continuing Education Credit

​​​​​​​​​​​​

In response to the pandemic, we are pleased to announce that we are offering virtual online testing for the Fellow exam this year. This new option is designed to alleviate possible testing obstacles and hardship you may encounter with our onsite testing centers. The deadline to take the exam has also been extended to August 31, 2020.

To obtain continuing education credit, some state insurance boards will require:

  • a proctored exam
  • a self-attestation form to be filled out
  • no proctoring needed

Please check your state below for details. THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT A MOMENTS NOTICE.
