Center Offering LTC Program
The Center for Senior Studies is getting ready to market its courses through the National Association of Health Underwriters.
The Coral Springs, Fla., training firm is offering NAHU members a five-class, self-study program that will lead to the center’s Certified Senior Specialist professional designation.
The center will also be offering NAHU members a series of Web-based continuing education classes that focus on the needs of older consumers, Jeff Sadler, the center’s president, said here at Arlington, Va., group’s annual convention.
The center is registering the NAHU classes for continuing education credits with state insurance departments and other regulatory agencies.
Most of the classes should provide two to four hours of continuing education credit, Sadler said.
Sadler is hoping to appeal to NAHU members with in-depth sessions on older clients’ insurance needs, along with a broad look at other aspects of financial services for older clients.
“We try to give an overall planning approach,” he said.
Sadler is also tailoring his programs to meet NAHU’s organizational needs.
A speaker noted at a meeting of one of NAHU’s state chapters that some local NAHU chapters have been earning a significant portion of their revenue from continuing education programs.
The local chapters worry about competition from Web-based continuing education programs, the speaker said.
