LUTCF students give ‘outstanding’ feedback on designation program

In a story reported in InsuranceNewsNet, students enrolled in NAIFA’s LUTCF program give high marks to the curriculum, saying the lessons learned and applied are bringing positive results to their practice.

At NAIFA’s annual conference in New Orleans, a number of LUTCF students introduced themselves to David Mannaioni, associate professor and lead instructor of the LUTCF. INN reports that many thanked Mannaioni and told him know how much they enjoyed the course. Feedback from the first wave of students has been “outstanding,” Mannaioni said.

Of the 76 students enrolled in Part 1 of the course that began in July, most have re-enrolled for Part 2. Michael Ruppeck, national account manager with the College for Financial Planning, said the re-enrollment rate is “an excellent retention ratio.”

The LUTCF curriculum also has received great support from life insurance carriers. Of the top 20 carriers, 17 have signed agreements with the College for Financial Planning to arrange for LUTCF training, either through the college itself of through instructors off-site.
