 British Columbia Requirements

15 credits (hours) per license period for life and/or accident licensees.  A license period is between June 1st and May 31st of each year.

10 credits (hours) per license period for life and/or accident licensees if the licensee has been licensed continuously for five years or licensed for five of the past seven years.

8 credits (hours) per license period for general insurance agents, adjusters and salespersons.

6 credits (hours) per license period for general insurance agents, adjusters and salespersons if the agents have been licensed continuously for five years or licensed for five of the past seven years.

The maximum C/E credits that can be earned in one day is seven (7).  Courses for more than seven hours will require additional days to complete.  For instance, if you select Presenting Products Ethically and start on Monday, you will not be able to test until Wednesday.  Opening the course starts the time requirements.  You must be logged in to start the time requirements.

The Insurance Council of British Columbia does not "approve" CE courses.

"Because there are so many opportunities for C/E both in British Columbia and in other jurisdictions, it is neither reasonable nor effective for the Council to pre-approve or accredit C/E.  The responsibility to determine what qualifies as C/E will continue to rest with the licensee."

Only C/E credits based on technical education will qualify.  Technical education includes courses, seminars or programs that directly relate to:

  1. life insurance/accident and sickness insurance products;
  2. financial planning, provided that the education is geared toward life insurance and not a non-insurance sector, such as securities or mutual funds.
  3. compliance with insurance legislation and requirements such as the Insurance Council of British Columbia's Code of Conduct Rules, the Insurance Act, privacy legislation, anti-terrorism/money laundering legislation;
  4. ethics;
  5. errors and omissions; and
  6. general insurance products (General is marked as "PC" on our site).

A licensee is expected to take reasonable steps to satisfy him/herself that a particular course, seminar or program meets the above definition and, if questioned, should be able to demonstrate why it meets the above definition.

Commencing June 1, 2008, excess C/E credits cannot be carried over into the next license period.
