"WA Annuity Suitability 4 Hour Course" Now Available at SuccessCE

3/29/2012 -- Newport Beach, CA -- 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 or 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

“At Success CE, we continue to be the first company out of the gate in providing not only the 4-hour Annuity Suitability course, but all state-specific continuing education courses,” states Shelley Bell of Success CE’s Institutional Sales Group.

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

“We are committed to maintaining our position as a proactive and reliable resource for producers, carriers, and the various distribution channels to meet these evolving annuity training requirements. Our affiliate website program allows tracking and verification of producer completion of NAIC Annuity Suitability Model Training courses, Product Specific Training, or any CE course, through our Success Management System (SMS),” states J. William Cooley, President/CEO.
