How to Renew Your North Dakota 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 must complete a one-time four credit training course approved by the department of insurance. Producers who currently hold a life insurance license must complete the training course within 12 months of the effective date of this regulation. Individuals who obtain a life insurance license on or after the effective date of the regulation may not engage in the sale of annuities until the annuity training course has been completed.
Long-Term Care Training
A producer may not sell a long-term care insurance policy that will constitute a Partnership policy unless the individual holds Accident & Health authority and has completed a one-time training course of at least 8 hours and ongoing training of at least 4 hours biennially thereafter. Insurers providing long-term care insurance must verify that the producer receives such training and make verification of the training available to the North Dakota Insurance Commissioner upon request. Training must include the following topics: long-term care insurance, long-term care services, Qualified Partnerships, and the relationship between Qualified Partnerships and other public and private coverage of long-term care. Producers may earn continuing education credit if the training course has been approved for CE in North Dakota.
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
North Dakota resident insurance producers licensed for life and annuities, accident and health, casualty, property, personal lines and crop hail or any combination of these lines of authority must complete at least 24 credit hours of approved continuing education per biennial compliance period based on the producer’s expiration date. Three of the 24 hours must be in ethics.

Non Resident Requirements
Non-resident who meet their home state requirement are exempt from North Dakota CE requirements, however, non-resident agents must comply with the LTC training for this state or another state which meets the NAIC LTC Model training outline. Non-residents are required to file a biennial filing fee.
Courses may not be repeated within the same licensing 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.
North Dakota resident licensees must complete their CE requirements before the last day of his or her birth date every two years.
Every licensed insurance producer must file a biennial renewal application and pay a $25 fee regardless of the lines of authority or exemptions from continuing education. Continuing education compliance and license renewal applications will be due biennially by the last day of the insurance producer’s birth month.
Up to 12 hours may be carried forward to the next year or backward to the preceding year. If you take more than 24 hours of coursework in a year, the hours in excess of 24 will probably be lost.
The law allows up to 12 hours of course work to be carried backward to the preceding year, so a producer may carry back hours by taking advantage of the ‘carry back’ provision. Ethics hours may be carried forward as regular hours; however, they cannot be carried forward as ethics hours.
Report within 15 days of completion. Need Agent’s NPN to report.
State Reporting Fees
The ND Department of Insurance requires 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.
