Courses: Colorado LTC Certification

Colorado Long-Term Care Certification Catalog

Training Requirements

Initial Certification Requirement:

Initial 16-hour training course consisting of 8-hours of general LTC training (can be taken as live training or self-study); and 8-hours of training specific to LTC Partnership (live training only). The courses can be taken in any order.

Resident Producers:

Colorado requires resident producers take both of the 8 hour courses mentioned above. They may not take an 8-hour NAIC Partnership course from another state.

Non-Resident Producers:

Please check with your carrier to determine if an 8 hour NAIC Partnership course from another state will suffice for the two 8 hour courses mentioned above. An 8-hour Partnership class from one of the original four Partnership states (CA, CT, IN, NY) will not be reciprocal.

LTC Connection is aware that one carrier, Nationwide, will require non-residents who completed NAIC training in another state to still complete the live 8 hour Partnership training in Colorado. Non-residents should ALWAYS check with their carriers to confirm they will accept the reciprocal training; however, as of 2024 this is the only carrier we know of that does not accept full reciprocity.

Refresher Certification Training:

Colorado requires a 5-hour course every 24 months that must be taken in a classroom setting.

In 2012, Colorado passed legislation allowing Colorado resident producers to take their required courses via online webinar. Non-Residents: Please check with your carrier to determine if they will require the 5 hour class from Colorado or will accept your 4 hour training from another state
