CT Insurance Services introduced CE Central, a comprehensive, Web-based CE tracking solution that automatically tracks all producer credits, in every state, for every method of study, for every CE provider. CE Central also matches the credits to the state-by-state requirements and automatically calculates CE requirements, outstanding credits and exemptions.
“Effectively tracking CE can significantly reduce market conduct exposure and protect premium income by helping to ensure that all policies are sold by properly licensed producers,” states Val Poltorak, CT Insurance Services’ director of Program Management and Business Development. “However, doing so is extremely challenging. Consider first that you must gather and maintain information from all of your producers, who reside in many states with many types of licenses and varying lengths of licensure. Add the complexity of multiple CE providers and individual state requirements to the mix, and the task quickly becomes daunting. CE Central streamlines and simplifies the process by integrating the various components needed to fully manage the CE compliance process into a single system.”
CE Central enables both CE administrators and producers to track insurance CE requirements and fulfillment, and to manage the license renewal process. With CE Central, users can store producer CE information, access the latest state CE requirements, obtain automatic calculations of outstanding CE, and electronically communicate upcoming renewal dates and requirements among the CE administrator, producers, field offices and other entities. Producer CE status information can be electronically uploaded from multiple CE providers. In addition, CE administrators or producers can enter this information online.
The CE administrator can also select, recommend and/or approve courses for producers, and, once approved, the system will automatically trigger registration via paper or email. Producers can view courses available by state, register for courses and check their CE training scheduler. In addition, CE Central automatically generates event- and calendar-based email notifications.
