Long-Term Care Courses

I sell Long Term Care products. How often do I need to complete a Long Term Care course and do I need to complete a California Partnership for Long-Term Care course?


All agents that sell Long-Term Care (LTC) products, who are exempt from continuing education requirements (non-residents or California Insurance Code (Cal. Ins. Code) Sections 1749.3 and 10234.93), must complete a LTC course once during each license term.

Specifically, Cal. Ins. Code Section 10234.93 mandates that individuals authorized to sell LTC insurance must complete an eight-hour LTC course prior to soliciting individual consumers for the sale of LTC insurance. In addition, new licensed agents must complete eight hours of LTC training every year for the first four years that they are licensed. Beginning in the fifth year that they are licensed, licensees are required to complete just eight hours of LTC training every two-year license term.

In addition, any agent marketing a Partnership Long-Term Care Insurance Policy or Certificate must complete eight (8) hours of education on long-term care in general that meet the requirements of Cal. Ins. Code Section 10234.93, Chapter 2.6 of Part 2 of the Insurance Code and eight (8) hours of training in a live classroom setting on California Partnership for Long-Term Care. Title 22, California Code of Regulations Section 58056 establishes this requirement.
