PLRB is currently applying for CE credit for the remaining webinars.

CE and MCLE credit is approved for attending the live versions of the webinars. Credit is not provided for watching the recorded version.

PLRB has waived the processing fee for continuing education requests in the designated states. Please be sure you have a valid, current adjuster license in the states to which you are applying for credit.

To obtain CE Credit for either webinar, you must:

  1. Watch the live presentation (the recorded presentation is not eligible for credit);
  2. You must watch from your own unique link. If you view the webinar as a group or via a link sent to you by another participant, we cannot verify that you attended and, therefore, cannot submit you for CE credit.
  3. Respond to all "attention checking" during the webinar, and;
  4. Sign, scan, and return the attendance verification form confirming your participation within one day after attending the live webinar.

An attendance verification form will be sent by email after attending the webinar. Completed attendance verification forms must be signed and received by PLRB by the Friday immediately following the webinar.
