MILWAUKEE – February 7, 2013 – Quest CE, premier provider of insurance continuing education and FINRA firm element training, is proud to announce the approval of its Michigan 4-hour NAIC Annuity Training Course.

Michigan has enacted the NAIC Suitability in Annuity Transactions Model as Public Act 544. This legislation has an effective date of June 1, 2013, and is generally consistent with the requirements of the Model, with the exception of the Model’s provision on compliance mitigation and penalties (Section 8 in the Model), which was omitted from PA 544. It includes the requirement that a producer who sells annuity products must complete a one-time, four-hour annuity training course. Producers who are licensed on or before June 1, 2013 must complete this training within six months (by December 1), while producers who obtain their license after June 1, 2013 must complete the training before they can begin selling annuities.

Since November of 2010, Quest CE has remained the market leader in providing crucial, comprehensive NAIC annuity suitability training, along with a wide array of continuing education courses to fulfill every producer’s industry needs at both state and national levels.
