2015 Florida Bar Forum Attendees

We hope that you enjoyed this year's Florida Bar Forum on April 9th and 10th, 2015.  We had a full educational agenda and a great turnout this year.  For those who registered each day at the conference desk, you would have received your Certificate of Completion from the WCCP Association reflecting 13.5 hours of CLE credit for attending both days of the conference.  It has come to our attention from several members of the section, who applied for their CLE credits prior to receiving their Certificate of Completion, that the FL Bar is applying the full 27 hours of CLE credit during the self-reporting process.  The 27 approved CLE credits was the total approved credit amount for our two simultaneous educational tracks.

We have been instructed by the FL Bar for you to contact them directly,(850) 561-5653), if this situation occurred during your self-reporting process and they can correct it on their end.  For those who have not completed the self-reporting process, you will need to enter 13.5 credit hours and 10 certification hours for attending both days of the conference, or 6.5 credit hours and 5 certification hours if you were only able to attend the Forum for one day, (this conference was not approved for any ethics credits). We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this has caused and invite you to contact us if we can provide any further assistance.

5-Hour Law and Ethics Update

As part of the passing of HB 725 on October 1, 2012, adjusters are now required to complete a mandatory 5-Hour Law and Ethics Update CE Course every 2 years specific to the license held by the licensee. The new law will affect those licensees who began their continuing education cycle on November 1, 2012 and will complete the compliance cycle in October, 2014.

This requirement is directly tied to CE compliance cycles ending 9/30/14 or earlier, and CE compliance cycles ending 10/31/14 or later. The licensees compliance period begins with the end of your birth month following the second anniversary of the first license issuance date, and then biennially thereafter.  In addition to the five-hour course, adjusters will be required to participate in 19- hours of elective credits, approved by the department and focusing on their specific line of insurance.
