New Training Requirement to Sell LTCI
On March 25, 2011, a bill establishing new Long Term Care Insurance (LTCI) training requirements was signed by the Governor and becomes effective May 10, 2011. Utah resident producers with an accident and health line of authority must complete three hours of initial training before selling LTCI. Those resident producers must also take three hours of ongoing training during every 24-month licensing period after the period in which they completed the initial training. Producers who have taken longer courses for other states (such as an eight-hour course based on the NAIC content) will be able to use this training to meet Utah’s requirements.
To locate the courses which would satisfy the training requirement follow the below instructions:
1. Go to www.sircon.com/utah
