Oklahoma Earthquake CE Requirement
The text below comes from the attached DOI Bulletin
To: Oklahoma Continuing Education Providers
From: OID Education Division
Date: August 5, 2014
Due to the swarms of earthquake activity occurring in the state, the Oklahoma Insurance Department (OID) is pursuing an emergency Oklahoma Administrative Code rule change to require at least one hour of continuing education on this topic each renewal cycle. The OID will begin enforcing the new rule on January 1, 2015. All resident agents, CSRs and adjusters with a property line of authority will be required to complete one hour of continuing education under the Earthquake course category per renewal cycle. This new requirement will be included in the 24 hours (CSRs 13 hours) as general credits.
SBS is currently working to add a course group titled Earthquake to the course application, which should be available by mid- to- late August 2014. The new course group will be universal and will apply to producer, CSR, and adjuster license types. If you would like to submit a course for review before this new course category is
available, please submit the course via your SBS Online CE Account under a general course category and e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org so the course can be pulled for review. Our goal is to build our course library with numerous earthquake courses in order for our licensee’s to be able to complete this requirement for license renewal.
Please note: The OID has the ability to ensure this requirement is being fulfilled by checking CE transcripts prior to license renewal.

Division at email@example.com.
