Arkansas Continuing Education Course Overview
We've designed our courses to be online and are broken into small "units" to make studying easier and stress-free. Each of our courses consist of several units of study with a quiz at the end of each unit. To progress from one unit to the next, you must pass the quiz by obtaining a score 70% or better. If you fail the quiz, don't worry as the course takes you back to the unit for review and a retake the unit quiz. This process is repeated until you pass the unit quiz.
During the quiz, you cannot back up to find the answer in the study materials. However, you can use your own personal notes but you may not use any other person's notes or help during a quiz.
When you complete the quiz, the course shows you your answer, the correct answer and an explanation of the correct answer. The unit quiz is a monitoring tool used to track your time studying the unit and responses to the questions.
Upon successful completion of the online portion of the course, the course will upload a final exam. The final exam is proctored and you may not use your notes. No need to worry, if you do not achieve a passing score the first time around, the system will automatically upload a second exam. Additional informaiton on who can be a proctor is below.
Upon successful completion of the course, we will email you a certificate of completion and report the hours to the Arkansas Insurance Department the next business day.
Who can be a proctor?
The proctor must be a disinterested third-party. An acceptable proctor is someone with no conflict of interest. Relatives, spouses, and co-workers are not acceptable proctors. Acceptable proctors may include librarians, CPAs, attorneys, and other professionally licensed insurance producers or adjusters.
