Newport Beach, CA, April 18, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Success CE is pleased to announce that the state of Washington has approved their course, WA Annuity Suitability 4 Hour Course, to satisfy the recently passed annuity training requirement (effective 3/29/2012). Washington producers completing this course will also be awarded 4 hours of insurance continuing education credit.
This course is available online at Successece.com or InsuranceContinuingEducation.com and can also be found on all current Success CE affiliate company websites for corporate clients.
The Washington annuity training rules require that producers licensed to sell annuities before 3/29/2012 must complete a one-time annuity training course approved for 4 hours by 9/29/2012 in order to continue selling annuities. Producers licensed on or after 3/29/2012 must complete this requirement before selling annuities. Washington will accept the completion of annuity training in a state with substantially similar annuity training requirements. This training requirement applies to both resident and non-resident producers.
In addition to the requirement to complete a one-time 4 hour course annuity suitability course, producers must also complete training specific to the annuity products they intend to sell (otherwise known as Product Specific Training).
Washington is the 24th state to pass an annuity suitability training requirement within the last 18 months, and many more states are poised to follow suit within the next year. In order to keep track of this dynamic process and the rapid state-by-state development of annuity training requirements, Success CE offers a free comprehensive resource that tracks all annuity training requirements nationwide. This can be accessed at http://www.successce.com/PSTAnnuityTrainingRequirements.aspx

Success CE can provide, deliver, and track all annuity suitability requirements and provide verification for insurance carriers and distribution channels.

William Cooley, President/CEO.
