Special Provisions for Insurance CE Courses of All Types

Course Completion

Course completion is contingent upon our receipt of the following at last 2 business days before a live webinar or classroom seminar, and at the time of registration for a self-study course:

  • The registrant’s name, mail address, NAIC license number, and email address
  • Payment in full of all registration fees; if a check is returned by the bank or if a credit or debit card payment is declined, payment in full has not been made; a $30 fee will be charged for all returned checks and a $5 fee will be charged for all declined credit or debit card payments

Course completion is also contingent upon the following attendance conditions, which comply with requirements of insurance code:

  • You must attend a CE classroom seminar or live webinar in its entirety to receive CE credit
  • We cannot award CE credit to any person missing 10 or more minutes of a CE classroom seminar or 5 minutes of a live CE webinar
  • Any person who has been distracted for 5 or more minutes during a live webinar (as determined by the webinar system’s tracking program) will be dismissed from the webinar and is NOT eligible for:
    • CE credit
    • A refund of fees paid
    • Transfer to another webinar or CE course

Course Completion Certificates

If a student has satisfied all course completion requirements, we will make every effort to provide a course completion certificate as follows:

  • With a paper certificate immediately following a classroom seminar
  • With an emailed certificate within 72 hours of a live webinar
  • With an emailed certificate within 24 hours of grading the exam for a self-study course
  • Duplicate course completion certificates issued more than 30 day after course completion will incur a $5 fee

If a student has not satisfied all course completion requirements, we will provide the course completion certificate within 72 business hours of our receipt of all requirements.

We will report attendance electronically to the state of Montana via the NAIC’s State Based Systems.

Insurance CE Webinars

In order to receive CE credit for any of our insurance continuing education webinars, you must be logged into the webinar (video and audio) before the webinar begins. It is possible to log into the webinar in several ways, each of which is explained in our Webinar Instructions. We utilize a third-party webinar platform (Citrix’ GoToWebinar or GoToMeeting, depending upon the type of presentation) and their website contains comprehensive instructions, tutorials, and assistance with getting ready to join one of our webinars at http://help.citrix.com/webinar/get-ready/

Because Linda presents all our webinars, and her assistant serves as the webinar’s administrator during all our webinars, no one is available in the office to answer your phone calls or respond to your emails beginning 30 minutes before the webinar begins. If you login to the webinar at least 15 minutes before it begins, we should be able to help you before the start time; however, we are not IT providers and do not accept responsibility for technical issues you might experience.

If you are unable to log into a webinar before it begins due to technical difficulties, we will transfer your registration to another webinar, without charge or penalties, so long as you notify us via email (at Linda@LindaFaulkner.com or Admin@FaulknerEducation.com) within 15 minutes of the webinar’s start time and notify us of the date and time of your replacement webinar within 24 business hours.

Important: We reserve the right to limit, per person, the number of transfers we honor due to techinical difficulties.
