Initial Certification Requirement:
Initial 8-hour NAIC Partnership training course which includes South Dakota state Medicaid information.
South Dakota allows resident producers to take a South Dakota 8-hour NAIC Partnership course, or they may take an 8-hour NAIC Partnership course from another state along with the 1-hour SD supplemental course to fulfill South Dakota's requirements.
South Dakota has adopted partial training reciprocity. This means that non-resident producers may take a South Dakota 8-hour NAIC Partnership that includes South Dakota state Medicaid information, OR they may take an 8-hour NAIC Partnership course from another state. If the training is from another state, the producer must take an additional 1 hour of supplemental training which includes South Dakota state Medicaid information.
Refresher Certification Training:
South Dakota requires a 4-hour course every 24 months.
If the 4-hour course is taken in another state, resident and non-resident agents must also take the 1-hour supplemental SD course.
What do the Version A and Version B mean? LTC renewal training must be completed every 2 years. Most states will not allow the same CE course to be repeated during a single compliance period or the subsequent compliance period. In an effort to ensure you can always earn CE for our programs, we provide two versions of the 4 hour that you can alternate between. To avoid any limitations in your resident license state, we strongly advise that you alternate between versions in order to ensure you can earn CE credit towards your license renewal. Please refer to your continuing education transcript to see which course you have taken within your current compliance period. If your last course was completed in the classroom or you have never taken a course with us before, choose Version A. If you are still unsure about which course to take, check your history under "My Courses" or contact us and our friendly staff will help guide you on what to select.
