Proctor / Disinterested Third Party


In accordance with the changes to Regulation 69-50 regarding proctor approval, we are no longer approving proctors. Producers are no longer required to use a state approved proctor to proctor their continuing education courses. They may now use any disinterested third party. That third party may not be their employer, employee, supervisor, relative, spouse, or minor.
