The 16 hours shall be eight hours on general long-term care insurance and 8 hours of specific to long-term care partnerships. Insurance carriers can break the 16 hour requirement into two separate courses covering the general long-term care and long-term care partnership training. The eight hours on general long-term care insurance training shall cover chapters 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6. The eight hours on long-term care partnership training shall cover chapters 3, 7 and 8.
