Three other things about the IA Insurance CE Requirements

Iowa allows you a lot of flexibility regarding the content of the courses you can take to fulfill your insurance continuing education requirement.


Regardless of the topic you select for your insurance CE classes, the credits will apply to your line of license. If you have a P&C license, you can take a life or health course, or vice versa. All of our courses are approved for insurance CE in Iowa so feel free to take any class that interests you.


Insurance agents in Iowa are required to take at least 3 hours of ethics, but they can have more–in fact, you could renew your license with all ethics course hours. Many agents enjoy our ethics material, and this means you can complete as many ethics classes you wish.


Only identical classes completed within the same renewal period would be considered duplicate and would not qualify. If there is an insurance CE course you enjoy, you can take it again for your next renewal and it will qualify toward your insurance CE requirement.

unlimited ce better than kaplan

Kaplan has a nice offer, but yours is a real bargain. $39 for 30 DAYS of UNLIMITED Insurance CE course access is the BEST value out there. Once agents get to know your company and the ease of your online insurance CE classes, it’s a hands down lock where their insurance CE dollars will go.

So grateful I got off Web-CE! Having used other web-based online insurance CE platforms, I found Bryan Ventures to be the most engaging, educational, humorous, and least hassle online CE available in Minnesota. The bonus, if you have any questions, Renee is great to work with! “
