With only 3 days (nay…less than 72 hours!) to go before the ghosts, goblins, witches and warlocks of Halloween descend upon us, hundreds of licensed Florida adjusters come to grips with Florida’s new reality…the mandatory 5 Hour Law & Ethics Update course. The number of Florida-licensed adjusters whose license/CE requirements are due on the last day of October, 2014 number well into the thousands. Those who need to, but haven’t taken, this new course by midnight, October 31st, will face some very serious consequences.
For two years, the Department of Financial Services and providers all over the state have given explanation and warning of what was to come since the most significant change in Florida adjuster licensing and CE laws since 1989, when the CE requirements for Florida adjusters first began. Few listened, and when they did, they didn’t listen well…preferring to procrastinate and expecting the vendor population to continue providing their CE “for free”. Claims employers, most of whom choose to ignore CE requirements as “the adjuster’s problem and responsibility”, are now also finding that they cannot depend on the vendor population to supply their claim staff with the new requirement…a course that is filled with specific content and time requirements that defy traditional “in-house” delivery methods. Now, a mere 3 days away from the witching hour of Florida Adjuster CE, adjusters are scrambling and crying, “Where can I get the course? I can’t find anyone offering it. You mean it all has to be taken at once? Why haven’t I heard of this before? How much does it cost? I can’t take off work!” …and on and on and on and on they go… Continue Reading
Thank you for the great support we have had since we began our LMS transition! We have been very excited about this new state-of-the-art system and your feedback shows that you are excited too!
We began this transition in early August and have since transitioned the continuing education for all states with exception of Florida. That transition is happening today! Anyone actively enrolled in a course in our old system should complete that course. But when you are ready to purchase new courses, you will do so in the new system.
The next courses to transition will be our licensing and training courses.

At AE21 Online we have always strived to provide the very best in online training. Since we began in 2004, we have set ourselves apart by dedicating our training exclusively to the adjuster and claims professional community. While agents and producers may find our courses of interest, it is, and always has been, our mission to develop quality material that is informative, engaging, and relevent to the unique job of the adjuster. The world of online training, or e-learning as it is often called, is ever evolving… and we have made it a priority to evolve with it so that we may bring you the cutting edge in online adjuster education.
Welcome to the Future!
In keeping with this goal, we are moving to a new, fresh learning management system and have given our already top quality courses new life. Gone are the days of “words on paper” courses. While maintaining the integrity of our continuing educational (CE) material, this new generation of courses will engage you with visually appealing design, relevent imagery, interactivity and even multimedia such as video clips. As a customer of AE21 Online, we want you to be the first to know about the changes ahead.
This evolution of training is an initiative that we have been dedicating ourselves to for quite some time. We are excited to announce that the time has come to begin rolling it out to you. Transition will begin on Monday, August 5th, and continuing into the next few months beginning with our continuing education courses.
We are excited to finally bring this evolution to you. We are taking steps to ensure that this shift happens as seamlessly as possible.
