If an agent does not obtain the required eight (8) continuing education hour credits within each twelve-month period as described in § 40-11-401, and have the necessary certificate of compliance filed with the clerk of the court by January 15 of each year, the clerk shall, by certified mail, notify the agent that the agent is not in compliance with the continuing education requirements of this part and the number of hours the agent lacks to be in compliance.
