Title Insurance Producer Licenses are issued by the Indiana Department of Insurance (“IDOI”). This is the same government agency that promulgates continuing education requirements, administers the license renewal process and enforces the Indiana insurance code. Currently, title insurance producers renew their licenses every two years, during their birth month and seven (7) hours of IDOI-APPROVED Indiana continuing education hours with the title designation must be attained prior to renewal. Four of these CE hours must be the “Core” hours: Underwriting, Ethics, RESPA & Escrow Issues/Closing. An additional three hours must be taken in addition to the “Core” hours. These additional hours can be electives or more “Core” hours.
