General 4
General $59.00  Add to Cart 

Even though "active shooter" situations gain most of the attention, and this course will discuss at length steps to survive these horrendous events, violence at the workplace is not limited to homicide. It also involves threats, intimidations, harassment, and assault. The risks associated with workplace violence are a major concern for employers, liability insurers, workers compensation insurers, and employees, but few are trained to recognize and assess the risks.

Very few employers and employees know effective methods to minimize the risks. Attendees in this class, taught by Stefan Salmonson, will learn the magnitude of workplace violence and will become aware of factors that often foster violence including a hostile workplace, substance abuse by co-workers and more.

The course will outline various risk management strategies that can build safer workplaces including how to analyze the different forms of a workplace, how to recognize the warning signals and some suggestions on how to avoid, escape and diffuse potentially dangerous situations.

Aug 30 – Aug 30 We’re in Probate—Now What? Bloomington, MN
General 4
Eligible CFP® CE Hours 4
General $59.00  Add to Cart 

Probate is a relatively civil, legal process to help families handle the complex work of wrapping up their loved one's life. Just like cleaning out the house when you move, it's a big job. The bills have to be paid, things are thrown away that do not have value, and things of value are either sold or given to the person intended. All of this takes leadership (Personal Representative), time (at least a year), organization (hire an attorney to follow the legal process) and patience. Families benefit from this process, and more often than not the family gets along. Once in a while, people fight and when they do, the legal process helps to keep the bloodshed to a minimum. This course will thoroughly cover the purpose of probate and the probate process. Persons who take this course will be better able to guide and counsel clients with the gained understanding of how the probate process works.

General $59.00  Add to Cart 

Probate is a relatively civil, legal process to help families handle the complex work of wrapping up their loved one's life. Just like cleaning out the house when you move, it's a big job. The bills have to be paid, things are thrown away that do not have value, and things of value are either sold or given to the person intended. All of this takes leadership (Personal Representative), time (at least a year), organization (hire an attorney to follow the legal process) and patience. Families benefit from this process, and more often than not the family gets along. Once in a while, people fight and when they do, the legal process helps to keep the bloodshed to a minimum. This course will thoroughly cover the purpose of probate and the probate process. Persons who take this course will be better able to guide and counsel clients with the gained understanding of how the probate process works.

Probate is a relatively civil, legal process to help families handle the complex work of wrapping up their loved one's life. Just like cleaning out the house when you move, it's a big job. The bills have to be paid, things are thrown away that do not have value, and things of value are either sold or given to the person intended. All of this takes leadership (Personal Representative), time (at least a year), organization (hire an attorney to follow the legal process) and patience. Families benefit from this process, and more often than not the family gets along. Once in a while, people fight and when they do, the legal process helps to keep the bloodshed to a minimum. This course will thoroughly cover the purpose of probate and the probate process. Persons who take this course will be better able to guide and counsel clients with the gained understanding of how the probate process works.

General 4
General $59.00  Add to Cart 

Even though "active shooter" situations gain most of the attention, and this course will discuss at length steps to survive these horrendous events, violence at the workplace is not limited to homicide. It also involves threats, intimidations, harassment, and assault. The risks associated with workplace violence are a major concern for employers, liability insurers, workers compensation insurers, and employees, but few are trained to recognize and assess the risks.

Very few employers and employees know effective methods to minimize the risks. Attendees in this class, taught by Stefan Salmonson, will learn the magnitude of workplace violence and will become aware of factors that often foster violence including a hostile workplace, substance abuse by co-workers and more.

The course will outline various risk management strategies that can build safer workplaces including how to analyze the different forms of a workplace, how to recognize the warning signals and some suggestions on how to avoid, escape and diffuse potentially dangerous situations.

The growth in popularity of indexed insurance products, specifically fixed indexed annuities and fixed indexed life insurance policies, has been dramatic. While these products are considered fixed contracts, the interest that is credited to these products is based on the performance of an external financial index.  The basic concepts of these products may seem simple, but they are among the most complex of all insurance products. To many, they fall in the middle of the risk spectrum, between traditional fixed annuities and life insurance policies and variable annuities and variable life insurance policies.

This course will explain how these products compare and contrast with their fixed counterparts.  The course will also cover in detail different interest crediting methods and design characteristics of the indexed product, and the important suitability and market conduct issues related to these products.

Dec 06 – Dec 06 Understanding Indexed Annuity and Life Insurance Contracts Bloomington, MN
General 4
Eligible CFP® CE Hours 4
General $59.00  Add to Cart 

The growth in popularity of indexed insurance products, specifically fixed indexed annuities and fixed indexed life insurance policies, has been dramatic. While these products are considered fixed contracts, the interest that is credited to these products is based on the performance of an external financial index.  The basic concepts of these products may seem simple, but they are among the most complex of all insurance products. To many, they fall in the middle of the risk spectrum, between traditional fixed annuities and life insurance policies and variable annuities and variable life insurance policies.

This course will explain how these products compare and contrast with their fixed counterparts.  The course will also cover in detail different interest crediting methods and design characteristics of the indexed product, and the important suitability and market conduct issues related to these products.

General 4
General $59.00  Add to Cart 

Even though "active shooter" situations gain most of the attention, and this course will discuss at length steps to survive these horrendous events, violence at the workplace is not limited to homicide. It also involves threats, intimidations, harassment, and assault. The risks associated with workplace violence are a major concern for employers, liability insurers, workers compensation insurers, and employees, but few are trained to recognize and assess the risks.

Very few employers and employees know effective methods to minimize the risks. Attendees in this class, taught by Stefan Salmonson, will learn the magnitude of workplace violence and will become aware of factors that often foster violence including a hostile workplace, substance abuse by co-workers and more.

The course will outline various risk management strategies that can build safer workplaces including how to analyze the different forms of a workplace, how to recognize the warning signals and some suggestions on how to avoid, escape and diffuse potentially dangerous situations.

General 4
Eligible CFP® CE Hours 4
General $59.00  Add to Cart 

Probate is a relatively civil, legal process to help families handle the complex work of wrapping up their loved one's life. Just like cleaning out the house when you move, it's a big job. The bills have to be paid, things are thrown away that do not have value, and things of value are either sold or given to the person intended. All of this takes leadership (Personal Representative), time (at least a year), organization (hire an attorney to follow the legal process) and patience. Families benefit from this process, and more often than not the family gets along. Once in a while, people fight and when they do, the legal process helps to keep the bloodshed to a minimum. This course will thoroughly cover the purpose of probate and the probate process. Persons who take this course will be better able to guide and counsel clients with the gained understanding of how the probate process works.
