(1) An individual who applies for a resident insurance producer license in this state who is or was previously licensed as an insurance producer for the same lines of authority in another state is not required to complete any prelicensing education or examination. The exemption under this subsection is available only if the individual is currently licensed in the other state or if the application is received by the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services not later than the 90th day after the applicant’s previous license was terminated and if the other state issues a certification that, at the time of termination, the applicant was in good standing in that state or the state’s Producer Database maintained by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, its affiliates or subsidiaries indicate that the applicant is or was licensed in good standing for the class of insurance requested.
(2) A person licensed as an insurance producer in another state who moves to this state must apply for a resident insurance producer license not later than the 90th day after the date on which the person established legal residence in order to qualify for a resident insurance producer license pursuant to ORS 744.059. Neither prelicensing education nor an examination is required of a person to whom this subsection applies in order to obtain a license in a class of insurance described in ORS 744.062 if the person held a license in that class in the other state, except when the director has determined otherwise by rule.
(3) An individual who holds an industry designation described in this subsection is not required to complete prelicensing education or the examination required in ORS 744.058 if the director is satisfied, by examination or otherwise, that the applicant is knowledgeable in the particulars of the applicable provisions of the Insurance Code. This subsection applies to:
(a) An applicant for a license authorizing the applicant to transact property or casualty insurance or both, upon whom the American Institute for Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters has conferred the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (C.P.C.U.) designation.
(b) An applicant for a license authorizing the applicant to transact life or health insurance, or both, upon whom the American College has conferred the Chartered Life Underwriter (C.L.U.) designation.
(4) The director may recognize one or more industry designations as exempting an applicant from the prelicensing education requirement or the examination required in ORS 744.058 or both. For each industry designation that the director recognizes and for the extent of the exemption to be given, the director shall consider the content, quality and scope of the educational program required for the designation as well as other factors determined by the director to be relevant.
(5) An individual is not required to complete prelicensing education or the examination required in ORS 744.058 or 744.064 for the following licenses:
(a) A license authorizing the individual to transact a type of limited class insurance, except as the director otherwise provides by rule.
