    On Demand

STC is now incorporating its 47 years of training expertise in an easy-to-use mobile Application. Our App is now available for Series 7 and Series 79 with Series 3, 6, 24, 63, 65, and 66 rolling out over the next few weeks. Other courses will follow later this year. STC’s App is currently available for iPads. However, it will soon offer the capability for iPhone and Android devices.


Our App is superior to other offerings in the field because it allows for completely offline training AND synchronization with STCinteractive. Students can start their training on STCinteractive and finish on the App. They can take their test while disconnected from the Internet (e.g., on the subway or on a flight), and have the results synchronized with STCinteractive so they can finish their training while at home or in the office. Students watching our On-Demand Lectures can download them and watch from anywhere.


Download our App today to train on your device.

Georgia Suitability in Annuity Training - Effective March 1, 2016
Producers who sell or wish to sell, solicit or negotiate annuities must complete a one-time 4 credit course approved by a department-approved education provider. Producers who hold a life license and desire to sell annuities are required to complete the training program within six months of the effective date of this requirement. Producers who obtain a life license on or after March 1, 2016, may not engage in the sale of annuities until the annuity training course has been completed. Producers may complete the requirement through classroom or self-study methods.

New CE Annuity Requirement - Regulation 187
Regulation 187 (Part 224 of Title 11 of the Official Compilation of the State of New York) requires insurers to set forth standards and procedures for recommendations to consumers for the purchase or replacement of an annuity contract made on or after June 30, 2011.

Section 224.4 (g) & (h) states that the insurance company is responsible for ensuring that every producer recommending its annuity products is adequately trained to make a recommendation. However, the regulation does not require the completion of specific training classes. It is the responsibility of the producer to know the annuity training requirements of the insurance company for whom he or she works.
