Both resident and nonresident producers must complete annuity product-specific training prior to selling annuities in Utah; however, there is no requirement that indicates the number of hours the producer must complete. Utah approved Kaplan’s Annuity Suitability: 4-Hour Training Course as a CE course only.

Reciprocity does not apply for annuity course completions in Utah. Producers who complete an annuities course in Utah will not be able to apply this training to meet the annuity requirements of another state.

Utah resident producers with an accident and health line of authority must complete three hours of initial training before selling Long Term Care insurance. Those resident producers must also complete three hours of ongoing training during every 24-month licensing period after the period in which they completed the intitial training.

This state has issued a notice reminding licensees who sell flood insurance of their requirement to comply with the minimum 3 hours of training requirements established by FEMA and the National Flood Insurance Program.

Resident Requirements

Producers and adjusters are required to meet 24 hours of CE credit, including 3 hours of Ethics, every two years. Of the 24 hour requirement, at least half (12 hrs) of the CE hours must be completed in a classroom setting or with classroom equivalent courses.
