    However to actually learn something I would have to say most of the CE providers don't actually have a lot of info in them and for learning new things I would recommend a LUTC or similar type class.
    I did have higher expectations for the CE class, is was mainly fluff. LUTC is a great tip. I hadn't heard of Life Underwriter Training Council classes until this point. Is there a particular provider you prefer?

    Contact your local NAIFA council...If your a member you receive a discount on LUTC classes...I think you purchase the courses from the American College.

    I have used numerous ones before and have never really loved any of them.

    Now a days I almost exclusively use IRMI. I find their courses are a cut above.

    Online CE is ok for what it is but in my opinion, if you want good content and you want to learn, it is best to attend live, in-person CE. It is there that you really garner greater knowledge and get to ask questions that are appropriate for you. If you are in a hurry and need to get some CE out of the way, that is one thing. But if you are truly there to improve your game and enhance your client experience, search out through your local Health Underwriter (www.NAHU.org), or NAIFA (www.naifa.org), or financial planning council what is happening. Where I am, there is an attorney that provides CE monthly which always introduces a new thought. All of us, in the industry, need to stretch what we know; and in my opinion, unless there is an online CE with a live instructor, there is no way to really dig deeper into what is being presented to learn how to apply it to our client base.
