40-5512. Continuing education requirements. (a) As used in this section:
(1) "Biennial due date" means the date of birth of any public adjuster who is required to complete continuing education credits and report the completion of the continuing education credits to the commissioner, except that such due date shall not be earlier than two years from the date of the public adjuster's initial licensure under this act.
(2) "Biennium" means, for any public adjuster who was born in an odd-numbered year, the two-year period starting with the public adjuster's biennial due date in 2011 and each two-year period thereafter. For any public adjuster who was born in an even-numbered year, such term means the two-year period starting with the public adjuster's biennial due date in 2012 and each two-year period thereafter.
(b) An individual, who holds a public adjuster license and who is not exempt under subsection (d), shall satisfactorily complete a minimum of 12 hours of continuing education courses, which shall include 11 hours of property/casualty or general continuing education courses and one hour of ethics, reported on a biennial basis in conjunction with the license renewal cycle. Only continuing education courses approved by the commissioner shall be used to satisfy the requirements of this subsection.
(c) Unless suspended, revoked or refused renewal pursuant to K.S.A. 2017 Supp. 40-5510, and amendments thereto, a public adjuster's license shall remain in effect as long as the education requirements for a resident public adjuster are met by such public adjuster's biennial due date.
(d) The continuing education requirements of this section shall not apply to licensees holding nonresident public adjuster licenses who have met the continuing education requirements of their home state and whose home state gives credit to residents of this state on the same basis.
