Quest CE Announces the Approval of its Texas Annuity Training Course

MILWAUKEE – October 27, 2011 –Quest CE, premier provider of insurance continuing education and FINRA firm element training, is proud to offer their new, approved Texas Annuity Training course. House Bill (HB) 227 part of Texas Insurance Code (TIC) §1115.056 became effective September 1, 2011 requiring certification of those intending to sell annuities in the state of Texas.

Producers intending to sell annuity products in Texas that were licensed before September 1, 2011, must either receive the old certification course, that is only valid until March 2012, or take the approved four hour annuity training course.

Quest CE’s four hour Annuity Training Course has been approved by the Texas Department of Insurances by fulfilling the necessary producer requirements to sell annuities under Section 1115.056(b), as amended by HB 227. Quest CE also offers multiple courses to fulfill the eight hours of continuing education regarding annuities required in the TIC §4004.202  necessary for completion in a producer’s two year licensing process.
