Important Announcement from the South Carolina Department of Insurance

Moving to SBS Continuing Education Services -- Effective July 8, 2019

Effective July 8, 2019, licensees will use the free, online SBS tools to lookup CE information and print education transcripts. Education providers will use SBS for Organizations for their CE licensing processes.

Effective July 1, 2019, Prometric will no longer be the continuing education (CE) administrator for the South Carolina Department of Insurance. Those resident licensees with a birth month through June of 2019 will still be required to pay the $15 CE record-keeping fee to Prometric. If you are a resident producer with a birth month of July 2019 and after, you will not be required to pay the $15 CE record-keeping fee. That fee will not be charged under SBS. However, education providers will pay a small fee under the SBS model so you should expect a slight increase in course fees in exchange for removing the $15 CE record-keeping fee.

All resident licensees will still need to meet the 24 hours of continuing education and license renewal application requirements to maintain an active license. South Carolina resident licensee CE requirements can be found on the Department’s website.

As a reminder to resident licensees, fingerprinting is not required at every renewal. If a resident licensee was fingerprinted at initial licensure or for his or her last compliance period, fingerprinting is not required as long as the license remains active.
