The Success Family of CE Companies Submits Four-Hour CE Course in Arkansas to the Department of Insurance for New Rule 82 Annuity Training Requirement

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - August 24, 2009) - Success CE, the premier provider of interactive insurance and securities, pre-license and continuing education training, announced today its new four-hour Online Insurance and Securities Continuing Education course which meets the need for Rule 82 Annuity Training in Arkansas. The course also incorporates Rule 2821 and Rule 2310 as a part of the course material.

Arkansas now requires four hours annually of annuity suitability training which includes content related to Arkansas Code as well as training specific to the suitability and marketing standards of each company selling annuities in Arkansas. Success CE has developed an Arkansas training course to meet the state content requirements of the suitability law. This Insurance CE course qualifies for four hours of Insurance CE credit, with the ability to incorporate company specific suitability and marketing standards.

"At Success Continuing Education, we are always adapting to stay up-to-date with state rules and requirements in order to offer the highest quality Insurance and Securities CE training, and meet the needs of Product Distribution Companies and the Financial Advisors who market their products," stated J. William Cooley, President and CEO of Success Continuing Education.

Within the last year, several states have implemented additional insurance continuing education requirements in the area of suitability for annuity sales and exchanges. This trend of states requiring annuity suitability training can be expected to accelerate over the next year.

California, Florida, and Arkansas now require producers to complete insurance continuing education courses on the topic of annuity suitability. Texas should be publishing their new requirement by the end of August.
